Rolfing Structural Integration
Christi Mueller Caspe uses a unique structural therapy called Rolfing® Structural Integration to address dysfunction, strain, and instability --often the primary cause of injury, pain, tension, and poor posture-- in the body. As a Certified Rolfer™, she utilizes specialized, hands-on techniques to access the many layers of the body in order to reorganize them and establish more a balanced and functional structure.
Rolfing increases muscular efficiency, body function, balance, awareness, mobility, quality of sleep, and ease in movement.
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. It is often suggested for the most long term results, clients who participate in the Rolfing® Ten-Series.
Originally named Structural Integration, Rolfing was initially developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf (May 19, 1896 – March 19, 1979) in the 1940'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.
