Named after its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body. More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing Structural Integration works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain.

Visceral Manipulation (VM) was developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, a French Osteopath and Physical Therapist. Using gentle touch VM Techniques we assess the dynamic functional actions as well as the somatic structures that perform individual activities. We also evaluate the quality of the somatic structures and their functions in relation to an overall harmonious pattern, with motion serving as the gauge for determining quality.

Manual manipulations can gently assist the inside tissues to change the quality of the adhesions between the organ’s fascia eventually returning them into their preferred locations and individual rhythm. Delicate and often highly reactive nature of the visceral tissues need only gentle force in just the right places to obtain greatest results. Private sessions available. MORE…

Yamuna® Body Rolling is an optimizing, energizing workout that elongates, tones and aligns the body. By working all the muscles of the body you are increasing your overall circulation, freeing up muscle restrictions, improving range of motion, flexibility, and posture, and developing core strength. Multiple reports showed improvements in bone density and quality of the bone as well. It is the perfect way to create long lasting muscle memory and enable the optimal conversation between body and mind.
