What is Rolfing® Structural Integration?

Rolfing Structural Integration is a deep bodywork based on the movement of fascia to alleviate both physical and emotional pain. It improves flexibility and balance, and increases energy allowing people to live better lives.

Why Choose the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute?

  • DIRI is one of only a couple of recognized professional “schools” of Structural Integration that is state licensed, nationally accredited and eligible for funding from the US Department of Education and the Veteran’s Association. 
  • Many SI schools in the USA have been established by professionals who trained at DIRI. Dr. Ida P. Rolf founded DIRI in 1972, and today the school remains one of the leading SI schools in the world, dedicated to staying at the forefront of research and training.
  • DIRI has proudly served as an annual sponsor and contributor to organizations dedicated to furthering the development of Structural Integration and fascia research. These include the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI) and the Fascia Research Congress (FRC). We are also members of The International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA).
  • Structural Integration is one of the fastest Integrative Health fields that provides a rewarding career on a personal level and excellent income.
