It seems that Oprah and Dr. Oz have set off a domino effect leading to even more great news coverage of Structural Integration!

Fashion reporter Xazmin Garza writes “Beauty Queen,” a monthly column published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

In her column on the 29th of February, titled “The Evolution of Man,” the Beauty Queen writes:

I’m in a slump. Not a Shaquille O’Neal kind of slump but more of a Quasimodo one, as in my upper back borders on hunch status. . . . During one of her Dr. Oz shows, the queen of daytime introduced the world to Rolfing. Say it aloud: Rolfing. Yes, it sounds like another name for vomit or the noise Arsenio Hall used to accompany his fist roll with but it’s neither. The name comes from its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, and it’s a “connective tissue manipulation technique” used to bring your body’s alignment back in order. Translation: it deslumps.

Rolfing on Oprah

If you’re plagued by muscle pain, Dr. Oz recommends a technique called Rolfing, which he describes as “even deeper than a deep-tissue massage.”

This technique, which was developed by Dr. Ida Pauline Rolf, aims to separate bound-up connective tissues (or fascia), which link the muscles. “Rolfing literally releases the joints,” Dr. Oz says. “When you talk to folks about the impact it has on them, a lot of them just stand taller. A lot is just freeing you up to live the way you’re supposed to live.”
