Rolfing Structural Integration
Christi Mueller Caspe uses a unique therapy called Rolfing® Structural Integration to address dysfunction, immobility, strain, and instability --often the cause of injury, pain, tension, and poor posture-- in the body. As a Certified Rolfer™, she addresses each layer of the body in order to reorganize the structure to establish a more balanced, functional and healthy system. In order for muscular efficiency, body function, balance, awareness, mobility, quality of sleep, and ease in movement to be restored, the whole body needs to be worked including the fascias, muscles, organs, bones, vascular system, and nerve networks.
All bodies can benefit from Rolfing regardless of age, physical fitness, or medical history. It is ideal for those seeking more adaptability and flexibility, and those who want to connect with and understand their bodies better.
Research has shown the effectiveness of Rolfing in numerous scientific studies on various conditions including back pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and anxiety. Rolfing improves the neuromuscular system and overall well being. It is highly effective in helping women reorganize their bodies both before and after natural and c-section child births, even if years have passed since the birth.
At least three sessions are usually recommended for most clients, but even one Rolfing session can be beneficial. For the most long term results, clients may consider participating in the Rolfing® Ten-Series.
Originally developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf (May 19, 1896 – March 19, 1979) in the 1940's-1950’s. Dr. Rolf was a biochemist whose work was greatly inspired by early osteopathy and chiropractic, yoga, and movement education. Since Dr. Rolf's time, the technique has continued to evolve to reflect and incorporate the latest in medical advances and research on pain and neuroscience.
