The Rolf Method of Structural Integration

Structural Integration practitioners

Structural Integration, otherwise known as the Rolf Method, was unknown to me up until 2002. Although I had been practicing yoga for years, I was often bothered by an unbalanced feeling in my body and had backaches lasting for days at a time. The worst part was not knowing what had triggered them.

I knew that I had a mild scoliosis because doctors told me. They also said it wasn't anything serious, so I lived with the occasional pain, assuming there was nothing much to do about it. When I moved to Provence, I was lucky to find a great doctor in Marseille, Dr. Patrick Chavaux (author of "La Nutrithérapie de A à Z"). He suggested I go see Michèle Ménage, a physical therapist in Marseille specializing in Structural Integration.

She and I got to work, and although I was skeptical, I started to feel progress. My left side no longer felt weaker than my right side, my yoga poses felt more fluid, and best of all, the backaches slowly diminished in intensity and frequency. I was so astonished at my improvement that I started reading everything I could about Structural Integration. Eventually I began taking classes at the school founded by Ida Rolf, the creator of Structural Integration. I continue to be fascinated by the ever-evolving art and science of working with the body, and my focuses include massage, sensory re-patterning and movement re-education.
