Introduction to Rolfing® Structural Integration

The first video is a brief overview of Rolfing SI prepared by two German colleagues.  It is short, directed at people unfamiliar with Rolfing SI and provides a nice "first glimpse" of our discipline.

 

This second video is an excerpt from a monthly show produced for the Center of Medicare and Medicaid (USA healthcare insurance programs) produced by MazurMedia. The show discusses alternative health care for people under these insurance programs and this segment presents an overview and introduction to Rolfing.

 

 

Rolfing® SI in the Workplace

Rolfing Structural Integration at Starkey Laboratories. This is a clip from May 8, 1997 on WCCO TV talking about how Rolfing Structural Integration affected Starkey Laboratories’ workers compensation costs.  The video doesn’t go into a lot of detail about how Rolfing works, but it provides a perspective that can be quite useful for you to make an informed decision about Rolfing.  The newscasters are somewhat confused, calling Rolfing “massage,” which it most definitely is not.  Their onsite Rolfer® was Siana Goodwin, several articles are also available, see here.
