Do you feel stuck with your body? Do you feel you are limited, low on energy, aging too fast, or in too much pain? Do you have a poor body image? Do you feel you are doing just the best that you can do, and need to just make the best of it?
Or is the experience of pain, strain, stress, stiffness, fatigue, trauma, accident, or illness a significant part of your life? Consider that you might discover, as I did, that much more might be possible in our experience in living in our bodies. You might learn, as I did, that your paradigm or "knowing" of what you can do in your body might not be in touch with your real potential.
Along with thousands of mothers, fathers, children, professionals, workers, dancers, yoga practitioners, and especially athletes…You just might be in for a real surprise…
Why have pain?
When not caused by an obvious direct injury, most causes of pain, including back pain causes, are frequently related to a lack of interior space in our body’s framework, our biotensegrity system. In this system, our bones provide the non-compressible struts that span space and are suspended in a myofascial webbing of muscles and fascia which provide the cohesive cabling of our body’s biotensegrity system.
Over time, our framework shrinks and becomes distorted, compromising the movement of parts inside it. For example, if you built the framework of a house out of green wood, and it shrunk by only an inch, what would happen to the doors and windows in the house? People’s height in a lifetime typically shrinks by an inch or more. Consider what could that potentially be affecting? One effect could be, if the struts in our body (our bones) touch, instead of being fully suspended by the cabling (our myofascia), we experience pain. Our nerves and arteries could also get squished by a distorted framework.
Structural Integration (SI) directly expands and balances our myofascial biotensegrity framework to reclaim and balance the space necessary inside the framework for our parts to function properly. And the results are long-term.
This is one of many reasons why the benefits of structural integration (SI) appear so diverse, addressing:
- Back pain therapy
- Neck Shoulder pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff rehabilitation
- Pain in Hip
- Joint pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Scoliosis improvement
- Chronic pain of Fibromyalgia usually dissipating
- Shin splints
- Sports injury
- Athletic Performance
- Tendinitis pain
- Tennis elbow
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Whiplash injury

Discover how Dr. Rolf rocked the medical field when she demonstrated the significance of our body's fascia, and how her recipe unlocked its power to transform our lives. This pioneer blended what she learned from eastern and western medicine, physical science, yoga, psychology, and the pragmatic application of her good feminine intuition, to impact the lives of thousands of people. Her original work (some folks back then affectionately called it Rolfing®), refined at California's Esalen Institute, inspired a whole new genre of holistic health modalities, and a whole new generation of dedicated practitioners (some of whom formed both the Guild for Structural Integration and the Rolf Institute and were commonly called rolfers® in the public domain before it was "claimed" as a service mark years later).
