What Is Rolfing® – Structural Integration?

Rolfing® Structural Integration, developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, is a hands-on method focused on manipulating the connective tissue (fascia).

The objective is to cultivate a healthier relationship between the body and gravity, resulting in improved posture—creating a body that is both adaptable and stable for daily activities with minimal tension and enhanced freedom of movement.

This enhanced connection with gravity often leads to:

•    Reduction of chronic pain linked to posture and everyday movements.
•    Increased awareness of daily habits related to posture, breathing, and walking.
•    Heightened sensory perception of the body.
•    A more responsive body requiring less energy to maintain an upright position.
•    Greater ease and harmony within the body.
•    More organic and harmonious movements, such as walking and sitting.
•    Development of existing postural and movement habits into more refined patterns.
•    A newfound presence.

How Does Rolfing® Work? What Is Rolfing?

Rolfing Onandi operates in Dublin and Spain

Rolfing® is typically administered in a 10-session series, where overall goals are discussed between the client and the Rolfer®. Each session addresses individual objectives that build upon one another, gradually achieving the overarching goal.

This holistic process involves a collaborative effort between the Rolfer® and the client. Attention is paid to the body's signals, guiding the exploration of movements and patterns that work best for the client. In addition to manipulating connective tissue, the Rolfer® helps identify existing postures and habits, assisting the client in discovering more possibilities within their body.

The concept of a "perfect objective posture" is debunked, as posture is dynamic. The focus shifts to fostering a better relationship with gravity while standing, walking, and moving. Clients actively participate in each session, exploring different movements and discussing perceptible differences. This active involvement allows clients to carry their discoveries home for further exploration after tissue release and heightened body awareness.


How Is The Rolfing® 10-Session Series Organised?

The 10-series is structured into three main sections:


Sleeve (sessions 1 to 3): Addresses tension in superficial fascial layers, preparing the body for deeper work in subsequent sessions. Emphasis on facilitating easier breathing, releasing shoulders and pelvis, and improving adaptability in the feet.


Core (sessions 4 to 7): Focuses on inner structures supporting posture, working from the foot's medial arch through the adductors, sacrum, belly area, back structures, up to the head. Aims to establish a tension-free physiological path for standing and walking.


Integration (sessions 8 to 10): Concentrates on understanding and connecting all structures addressed in previous sessions. Emphasizes functional aspects to integrate changes into a meaningful reality.
