Rolfing Myth Series: Myth #2 “That’s what I used to do in college.”

Did you miss Myth #1 about Rolfing? Check it out here.

This one is my favorite. Whenever someone asks me the splendid question of, ‘what do you do?’, I tend to hesitate a moment before answering, as I never know what kind of response I will receive. People have either heard of Rolfing or simply think I’m saying some super weird word and have no idea what I am talking about. More than once, when I have told someone that I do ‘Rolfing’, I’ve received the joke response back of, “that’s what I did in college.” This act they are referring to is ‘Ralphing’ – ya know, vomiting. And, no, this is not what I do as a profession.

Dr. Ida Rolf is who founded Rolfing. She called the work Structural Integration. I am a member of the International Association of Structural Integrators. If you are curious to learn more about the world of structural integration, you can check out more here.

Rolfing is a nickname that Ida’s first students tossed around when the work was first being developed. It is now a copyrighted & protected word. I get to use the term as I attended the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute, which is why I get to say I am a Certified Rolfer. There are other schools that teach structural integration, those practitioners can use that terminology but cannot call themselves a “Rolfer” nor say that they do ‘Rolfing’.

So that dispels that silly & kind of gross myth 😉  Be on the lookout for Rolfing Myth #3 which will be coming next week. If you would like to learn more about Rolfing, feel free to send me an email at or give me a call at 720.236.4847. I have availability at CrossFit Sanitas on Mondays, and you can see my upcoming schedule & book a session with me here.

Rolfing Myth Series: Myth #1 “Rolfing is Painful”

One of the most common concerns I hear from potential clients is that they are afraid Rolfing is going to be painful & too intense for them. Historically, Rolfing was fairly uncomfortable & at times, even painful. However, like any profession, as we learn more over time, we adapt and refine our approach. The largest […]
