What is Rolfing Structural Integration?
We all walk around with our ‘story.’ Our posture and movement patterns have come about over time from repetitive movements, genetics, beliefs, traumas, and held emotions. These patterns have served us. However, overtime these patterns can result in pain, strain, and misalignment.
Alignment is essential to all of us, but is perhaps even more important to those of us who care about our health and are working out regularly.

Why is Optimal Alignment Important?
If your body is not in optimal alignment and you work out regularly, you are contributing more to your body being out of alignment. Over time, this will result in injuries and decreased athletic performance.
For example, let’s say your pelvis is ‘off’. The left side of your pelvis is higher and the right side of the pelvis is shifted forward. This is a common issue I see in many of the clients I work with. Your pelvis plays a foundational role in allowing your legs to move and track properly as well as allowing your spine, torso, rib cage, and shoulders to have a solid base upon which to be supported.
If your pelvis is in the above pattern, overtime it is not unlikely that you may develop pain in your right knee or pain in your left low back.
To feel your best and to achieve optimum health, your body needs to move with balance. Muscles, bones, and organs that move in proper relationship to each other create real strength – the kind that feels naturally good and powerful.
Injuries and lifelong habits can disrupt the natural alignment of your body and prevent you from being able to move freely. Pain and strain is your body’s way of telling you it is out of balance.
Rolfing Structural Integration focuses on the body’s complex matrix of connective tissue, the fascia, in a way that brings all the body’s parts into more smoothly functioning relationships. This is done by manipulation of the body’s fascial tissue (connective tissue) and reeducation with the client and their body awareness.
More About Emily
Emily first heard about Rolfing Structural Integration from an uncle who was a runner and had multiple back injuries. Rolfing had dramatically changed his life. After a couple years serving as a full-time volunteer for two different non-profits and experiencing various healing modalities, Emily decided to become a Certified Rolfer.
In the fall of 2013, she moved to Boulder to attend the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration. She graduated from the institute in August of 2015. Since graduating, she has completed several continuing education classes with topics ranging from craniosacral work, the neuroscience behind chronic pain, functional methods from an osteopathic perspective, and the Lokte Method.
