Structural Integration
Basic Series Overview
What will I get out of the basic series?

People generally come to Rolfing SI because there is something going on in their body that they want to change. They are hoping for a shift toward greater health, freedom, relaxation, and relief from discomfort. The basic series of Rolfing structural integration is profound in that, although it won't solve everything or erase every issue, it will create a significant shift in direction. Beyond the relief that is typically obtained, momentum in the direction of the desired change is supported by the structural changes, improved relationship with gravity, and increased body awareness. I weave movement and resource education into the sessions, along with perceptual explorations relating your body to its environment, to further empower you to continue the process of positive transformation after the series is complete.

Why the "10-Series"?

Although the basic series designed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf is often referred to as the "Ten-Series," (i.e., ten sessions, each emphasizing a different area and level of integration of the body), I have found over the years that better results are achieved when the series is adapted to the individual structural needs of each client. Although I adapt to and optimize however many sessions a client chooses to undergo, in my experience 10 to 15 sessions are required, depending on the context and history of the individual client, to optimally achieve the series' structural and functional goals.

How do the series' goals apply to me?

Contact me if you would like to learn more specifically about what these structural and functional goals are, how the series approaches them, and how they would apply to your particular body's issues and experience.

What happens after it's over? How will I know if it worked? Will the changes last?

The Rolfing structural integration series will continue to produce changes after its completion. Click here for information on how to discern whether the series has worked or is still working. Many people choose to return for more Rolfing SI, typically in the form of 1 to 5 sessions anywhere from 6 months to several years after the original series. Depending on the context, this post-series advanced work may be approached as maintenance, or its objective may be to further the transformational process begun with the basic series.
