What Is Structural Integration?
Structural Integration was developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the mid-twentieth century to help people reach their highest potential, using soft tissue (fascia) manipulation and movement education. It is a holistic and systematic form of bodywork delivered in a series of 10 sessions, each one with a specific purpose building on the previous session. For example, one of the first session’s goals is to ensure free, natural breath then the second session builds a foundation of balanced feet, legs and hips.
Structural Integration is unique in that its aim is overall organization of the whole body. My role is to work with the client to rediscover their length and space, then allow the body to re-align itself in its own optimal way. With proper alignment, our bodies work with gravity instead of fighting it and can hold themselves up and move smoothly, with much less effort.
What is fascia? Fascia is connective tissue. It wraps each muscle fiber and each muscle, makes up our tendons and ligaments, covers our bones, protects our organs and so much more. Results from working with fascia can be both subtle and profound, linking physical, neurological and mental health. I have found the work really joyful, both to give and receive. I look forward to sharing it with you.

“After working at a desk job for many years, I needed to do something to release my body from poor posture.
Going thru the sessions, my posture has improved and I feel less tension when walking and moving. When I start to revert to my old movement patterns, I hear Bridget's cues and am able to correct those patterns.
