     What is Rolfing? A quick answer is that Rolfing is a manual therapy that affects the connective tissue matrix of the body. But, as anyone who's been on the Structural Integration journey knows: Rolfing is much more than that alone. I agree with my teacher, Mary Bond, when she states, "Rolfing is, in fact, a philosophy; it is an inquiry into the nature of human embodiment."1 Rolfing releases connective tissue restrictions in the body of the client. This not only creates more balance, mobility, lightness, and flexibility in the body, but also allows the release of our familiar patterns of structural and functional holdings. New healthier patterns can emerge as the old ones dissolve. Without automatically settling back into the ruts of our historical patterns, we have more freedom to explore who we are as individuals and to better perceive the gifts of our world.

     A Rolfing practitioner will address limitations in one sub-system of the body, but will also always be looking at the more global picture of how the compensation and intervention will affect the whole structure.  Rolfers know that any mobilization technique applied to the connective tissue system will change the shape of the whole organism.  This is because the connective tissue system is a contiguous fibrous system.  If you remove the bones and muscles from a body, the body will still have shape due to the system of connective tissue, also called fascia
