Fascia . . . Liquid Crystal

We were fortunate to see Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau’s “Strolling Under the Skin” video in it’s entirety at the First International Fascia Research Congress a couple of years ago. Recently, some kind soul posted clips from the video on YouTube. Fascia is building block upon which Structural Integration is built, it is what makes it possible for us to do the work we do and a huge part of what allows our bodies to change themselves.

We talk about it all the time. . . . Now you can see it for yourself!

Ida Rolf on “Rolfing” Structural Integration

Here’s something we ran across on the www.irolfing.com website.  Who better to explain the subject that Dr. Rolf herself?

THE VERTICAL-EXPERIENTIAL SIDE TO HUMAN POTENTIAL
An essay by Ida P. Rolf, founder of Rolfing® Structural Integration, dated March 1977


Like so many teachers, some of them very close to home, I complain that people do not seem to understand my basic goals, the fundamental purpose for which Rolfing has been developed. In an effort to lessen this type of frustration, I offer the following summary of Rolfing developments, purposes, and ideas.

First, let me reiterate what I have often said before: I as an individual, am not primarily interested in the relief of symptoms, either physical or mental. To hear Rolfees tell of their “wonderful”, “unbelievable” symptom alleviation, it is hard not to accept this assessment as a goal. However, I am interested in human potential, and human potential per se neither includes nor excludes the palliation of symptoms.

As of today, Rolfing is accepted as being one of the most basic, one of the most reliable means of developing whatever potential is latent in any given human, psychological as well as physical. By what route did Rolfing reach this particular eminence? We assume that human beings are, as a species, evolving toward verticality. What are the intellectual considerations which can speed us on our way toward understanding the value of this verticality?

Rolfing® Structural Integration and the Vikings

Today, a fellow Structural Integrator sent us a link to this YouTube video. Rolfing and Structural Integration has helped many professional athletes to be on top of their game. It’s no suprise that the Vikings consider it a vital part of their training!


“This is a segment from Vikings Game Day that talks about how the NFL Minnesota Vikings use Rolfing® Structural Integration to keep their players ready for game day. The coverage is quite thorough, particularly in its presentation of what Rolfing really is. I believe this video is from May 8, 1997.”
