Although Rolfing admittedly sounds like something you might be inclined to do down a back alley in Soho, you may otherwise have heard of it by the name of Structural Integration. I discovered this book as a well intentioned student massage therapist. By far and away it was the best, most sophisticated examination of human functional anatomy I have ever seen. And seen since; one of those books that changed me- a bible of bodyworking. Ida Rolf started out with a PhD in biochemistry, which makes it all the more intriguing that she should develop an interest in functional anatomy. Rolf had an interest in REAL bodies, not the idealised artist's impressions that we see in anatomy books. Real bodies are messy. They are made of connective tissue, cartilage, sinews, muscles and bones all welded together in one wholistic functional unit. Bodies are energetic. They transmit, store, and contort with emotion and use, and Rolf explores all of this with a multitude of graphs, charts, diagrams and photographs. This book is unashamedly technical. Just the title indicates that fact: `Rolfing- Re-establishing the Natural Alignment and Structural Integration of the Human Body for Vitality and Well-Being'. It demands a rigorous and intimate knowledge of anatomy which Rolf assists in greatly. Not by simplification, but by explanation- she is an inspired teacher. After a biomechanical study of the various functional units of the body (e.g. hips, lower locomotion unit, shoulder girdle, head and neck), she asserts that correct postural function on which so much of health depends, can be regained by structural integration. This is a type of deep tissue processing, not dissimilar from a Chinese burn, only twice as painful. Rolf bases much of her therapy on the much ignored, but enigmatic connective tissue.Read more ›

Written over 20 years ago, this book is still well worth reading. Some of the images and phraseology seem a bit dated but the information they contain is still very relevant. The book contains the theories of structural integration (and very little "How to..." knowledge) but from this those that have some knowledge can look at the clients/patients in a new way and hopefully help them to recover.

It is also very nice to read a book by an author that believes that the human body can improve again from learnt bad behaviour, rather than people just having to put up with it and take a pill.

Format: Paperback
Old position but still great knownledge inside. Not just for rolfers, as I bought it as a yoga teacher. It shows big understanding and observance if Ida Rolf. It gives very good exlanation on what works how and where, sometimes leaves you with AHA! syndrome. Very recomended

Formerly subtitled 'The Integration of Human Structures' I have read this about every 10 years during a 30 year practice of Structural Integration. A masterpiece
