The Rolf Method - Classic 10 Series
Structural Integration is a system used to align and balance the physcial body within its gravitational field by freeing and reorganizing the myofascia, or connective tissue that surrounds the muscles. Dr. Rolf discovered that the body is organized in layers and that in order to create lasting change, the Structural Integration Series must create length and space in the outermost layers before working with deeper, more core layers in the body.
The first three sessions are called "The Sleeve" and cover the superficial fascia, the middle four sessions are called "The Core" and cover the deeper myofascial structures, and the last three sessions are called "Integrative" and create structural and fucntional adaptability within the whole body.
The Sleeve Sessions: 1-3
Superficial or "sleeve" work
The "sleeve" of your body is the outer fascial layer. This is the part of your body that does the "doing", the fast movments. The goal for these sessions is to open, lengthen, and organize these extrinsic layers. This will create space for the deeper layers to unwind and release.
The Core Sessions: 4-7
Deep or "core" work
The "core" of your body is the inner fascial layer. This part of your body is your "being ness", the area of slow, postural movements. The goal of these sessions is to open, lengthen, and organize these intrinsic layers.
The Integrative Sessions: 8-10
Where the sleeve and core meet
The first seven sessions are about taking the body apart to get the individual parts working better. The last cycle of sessions is about putting the individual parts back together into a better functioning whole. This is the place where the sleeve and the core meet and interact. You will begin to experience motion, initiated by your core layer, smoothly and efficiently transmit out through the sleeve layer of your body.
