Ida Rolf, a chemical engineer, mathematician and atomic physicist, pioneered a radical view of human physiology and growth that has influenced many scientific fields. Rolf believed and taught that the human body, in alignment with the gravitational field of the earth, meant a body in balance and harmony. Research and speculation posit that Rolfing is an alchemical process of personal growth. Betsy Sise, a master Rolfer, presents Rolfs exciting work on many levels: introduces Rolfing to the beginner; an overview of Rolfing philosophy; a virtual 10-session Rolfing series; direct interviews and extensive comments from teachers who worked directly with Ida Rolf; the author's own Rolfing odyssey. This wonderful book leaves the reader wanting to experience Rolfing, even if he or she has never heard of the process before.

"If you enjoy animal stories as much as I do, you're in for a great read. . . . You'll witness the health and happiness of these animals being transformed through the hands and heart of Briah Anson and her passionate application of Rolfing(r) Structural Integration. . . . It's an incredible menagerie: cats, dogs, and horses, as well as guinea pigs, llamas, eagles, an owl, a rooster, a cougar, and, perhaps most intriguing of all, an up close and personal encounter with a wild moose named Mike." Paul Schurke, Outdoor adventurer and educator; coauthor with Will Steger of North to the Pole and author of "Bering Bridge: The Soviet-American Expedition from Siberia to Alaska"; Director, Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge and Arctic Adventures, Ely, Minnesota "As Briah Anson's collection of nonhuman patients clearly demonstrate, Rolfing(r) Structural Integration isn't just for people, though a person's appreciation of its benefits for themselves often leads to an interest in trying this form of body work on their animals. . . . Each animal's emotional and locomotor response to Rolfing described in this book strongly suggests a true and sustained benefit." Julia H. Wilson, DVM, Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine; Associate Professor, Large Animal Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota "Briah Anson shares her experience, insight, and her love for all creatures in these amazing stories of her quest for healing through Rolfing(r). . . . After each session, the ravages of the eagles'] permanent disabilities seemed to have less influence on their performance. . . . The Rolfing sessions improved their overall disposition and health. . . . I'm grateful to Briah for her extensive dedication and the volunteering of her time and talent given to the eagles at the National Eagle Center." MaryBeth Garrigan, Executive Director of Eagle Watch, Inc. (2000-05); Program and Development Director, National Eagle Center (2005-09), Wabasha, Minnesota "Rolfing(r) Structural Integration, a unique myofascial approach to assist the body in healing numerous musculoskeletal and other issues, is being introduced to the animal world through Briah Anson's fascinating book, "Animal Healing." Through case reports, anecdotes, and stories from her pioneering practice applying Rolfing SI to animals, Briah offers convincing evidence that the benefits of this work may be applicable to animals as well. This book is an excellent introduction to Rolfing Structural Integration and its potential application to nonhuman animals. Allen M.

A warm and wise self-portrait of the woman who originated the therapy that bears her name. Here, Ida Rolf tells about her life, about the wonder of the human body, about life in general, and about Rolfing in particular, explaining her technique of manipulating muscle tissue to allow the body to come into its correct alignment. After Rolfing, your body has been encouraged to do what it wants to do--you move with ease, your lungs take in more air, and you are taller (and therefore, slimmer).

An illustrated guide to the Structural Integration bodywork process and the relationship between body alignment and energy flow • Details each of the 10 sessions in the Structural Integration bodywork series, explaining what to expect and how to maximize the benefits • Explores the relationship between the energetics of the body and its alignment, including a scientific understanding of how gravity affects body alignment • Explains how to incorporate essential oils and other holistic support tools as well as the psycho-emotional Hellerwork themes When the body’s structure is optimally aligned, not only does it eliminate pain, reduce inflammation, and stop the degeneration of joints and discs, it also enhances the flow of energy in the body and awakens us to greater mental clarity. In this illustrated guide to Dr. Ida P. Rolf’s Structural Integration process, Jean Louise Green introduces the principles of Structural Integration and details each of the 10 sessions in the Structural Integration bodywork series, explaining what to expect and how to maximize the benefits. She explores the relationship between the energetics of the body and its alignment, including an advanced scientific understanding of how gravity can become a beneficial force when the body is properly aligned. She provides clear, accessible descriptions of core concepts such as the Rolf Line and the torus, including a detailed explanation of how to access the energetics of the Rolf Line. She illustrates the rotation patterns of the body and explains how they contribute to pain and how correcting them may minimize the need for hip and knee replacements. She provides movement exercises and support tools for self-care and maintenance between sessions and explains optimal body mechanics for moving, sitting, and standing as well as how to avoid putting stress and strain back into the body. This book is an excellent resource guide to accompany a person through their Structural Integration series. The author also explores how to incorporate Joseph Heller’s psycho-emotional Hellerwork themes in the Structural Integration process and looks at holistic support tools such as electromagnetic resonancing, far-infrared saunas, essential oils, gratitude practices, meditation, and the Five Tibetan yogic exercises. Offering an energy medicine approach to bodywork, this guide provides both practitioners and laypeople with the necessary tools to dramatically increase the efficiency of the body, release chronic pain, improve mental function, and free energy flow.
