What are the forces that disturb the body's natural alignment and establish conditions of chronic pain and dysfunction? It was this question that led Dr. Ida Rolf on her lifelong search for a means to undo the ill effects of time and injury (both physical and emotional) on the body's structure. The result was Rolfing, an organized pattern of bodywork that has freed millions to live healthier, more active lives. In this book of lucid, informal talks, the woman behind the method speaks out about her experiences, her theories, and the therapy she developed of deep muscular/connective tissue manipulation.

Ida P. Rolf (1896-1979) received her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Columbia University in 1920. She subsequently worked at the Rockefeller Institute in the department of organic chemistry. She came upon the idea of Rolfing, or Structural Integration, during her search for solutions to family health problems. Finding available methods of treatment inadequate, she began drawing on her extensive knowledge of hatha-yoga to investigate the effect of structure on function. For more than four decades, Dr Rolf taught classes in Rolfing worldwide, and in 1972 she established The Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado. By the time of her death, Rolfing centers were emerging in Europe, South Amenca, and Australia. This intimate yet down-to-carth book provides a vivid impression of a warm, funny, and wise woman, and a reassunng picture of Rolfing: it is not a matter of coercing the body into submission; rather the body is encouraged to do what it really wants to do - work with, not against, gravity.
