Structural Integration: The Journal of the Rolf Institute® is the professional journal representing the field of Rolfing® Structural Integration. It has been in continuous publication for some forty years, initially as The Bulletin of Structural Integration and later as Rolf Lines.
Although Rolfing Structural Integration (SI) is primarily a form of manual therapy to reorganize body structure through the fascia, it has long been observed that Rolfing sessions can have an equally strong transformative impact on clients’ minds and ways of being. In this issue of Structural Integration: The Journal of the Rolf Institute®, Volume 43 No. 2 (July 2015), we focus on the mind-body relationship. In thirteen articles, our authors discuss 'Mind' through the lenses of trauma, meaning structures, metaphor, language, attachment theory and the therapeutic relationship, and meditation and spirituality. Additional articles in the Perspectives section discuss biotensegrity, osteopathy, hip dysfunction, and Rolfing history.
The Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration was established in 1971 by Dr. Ida P. Rolf to carry on the work she originated, the field of structural integration. Dr. Rolf's genius was to consider these two factors in combination - how gravity affects a body's structure and alignment, and the holistic role of fascia (the body's connective tissues) in maintaining the shape and flexibility of the human form. With these concepts, she developed a process for optimizing body posture and structure by aligning and re-organizing the fascia.
The vision of The Rolf Institute is to bring the benefits of Rolfing® Structural Integration to the world. This is accomplished through internationally-recognized certification programs in Rolfing Structural Integration and Rolf Movement® Integration, as well as continuing education programs for practitioners. The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration is the only school that teaches Rolfing Structural Integration and graduates Certified Rolfers™ worldwide. The Rolf Institute also underwrites and promotes research and public education about the benefits of Rolfing SI, including the publication of its scholarly periodical, Structural Integration: The Journal of The Rolf Institute®.
