  1. Massage therapy is a modality of alternative healthcare first developed by Ida Rolf, who was a patient in psycho-pharmacology. She worked with the American Medical Mafia and became known to the world as a lover of massage therapy. The principles of Rolf's therapy are made to heal someone holistically. Since then, massage has expanded into many diverse areas and massage therapists can specialize in Structural Integration, Sports massage, Human Energy Field healing and Alternative Health massage.
  3. One of Rolf's major theories was that stress in the muscles caused structures to shorten and elongate, which in turn cause pain. So as to treat pain, a massage therapist would elongate the fascia which lengthens the muscles and improves posture. After the stretching is finished, the muscles are relaxed to alleviate muscle tension. Structural Integration is the term used to refer to this process and is a significant component of Rolfers technique.
  6. Structural Integration (SIT) is the process of the bodywork therapist moving from one position to another restoring harmony in the body. Rolfers feel that if we move our body in a way that it is accustomed to, it will automatically adapt to whatever new position we find ourselves in. If you are standing and find yourself leaning forward, the way you will have your feet is more likely to be different than if you are lying down and looking up at a horizontal ceiling. This principle is what makes structural integration so important.
  8. A good massage therapist will do a series of stretches, holds, pulls, presses and friction points to restore the structure to specific points throughout the body. These particular points will have varying consequences on how the client feels and the degree of discomfort they experience. There are five zones that are commonly addressed when performing structural integration; the cervical zone, thoracic zone, sacral/spinal zone, lingual zones, and cranial zone.
  10. To begin the session, the customer will be asked to relax in a comfy seat. Then the session can start. The massage practitioner will begin their massage by applying gentle pressure to specific points in the body. Additional reading After these points are targeted a rhythmical motion will be applied, much like music or a bellows.
  12. Throughout the session the myofascial tissue will be manipulated. This movement will occur both during and between movements. In addition some additional pressure could be applied to specific joints or muscle groups. The objective of structural integration is to increase the overall flexibility of the body. A few of the benefits of this type of stretching and manipulation include: reducing soreness and enhancing range-of-motion of joints.
  14. Since Rolfers are trained in an open and effleurage kind of massage, there is a minimal restriction on where they could work. They don't require a special space to practice their techniques. Their massage is extremely general, so it can be done anywhere and anytime. In fact, they often feel completely mobile while they are receiving treatment. With their open style of movement and flexibility, Rolfers can work in any room and on any type of surface.
  16. Massage isn't the first choice for treatment of chronic pain. But with Rolfers it may be combined with other treatment options and even used alone. A combination of stretching and massage techniques along with traditional chiropractic services can offer you an amazing collection of pain relief. If you are suffering from chronic pain and need to be treated for long term neurological issues, structural integration of the spine may be the answer. Myofascial release of the surrounding fascia helps your body restore mobility and reduce inflammation.
