What is Rolfing?
Named after its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing® Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body. More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues surround, support, and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs. Rolfing® works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign, and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations, and alleviating pain.
Rolfing® Structural Integration aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy, and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body. The Rolfing® process enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency and freedom of movement. Research has demonstrated that Rolfing® creates a more efficient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement.
Rolfing® Structural Integration helps Athletes, dancers, musicians, children, business professionals, and people from all walks of life improve their performance in professional and daily activities. It is also an excellent foundation to complement all personal wellness practices including: Pilates, Gyrotonic®, Weight Training, and Yoga.

Eric is an amazing bodyworker. He listens to the body in front of him and engages with kindness, intuitive touch, and mindful intention. I finished my Ten Series with him in February of 2020 and intend to continue seeing him monthly because the work we do is powerful and impactful to my daily way of being in my body. I highly recommend this work to all of my clients and can not speak highly enough about Eric. He has been invaluable to my deepening appreciation of my fascia and I consider the work I do with him to be deeply important for maintaining a body that is mobile, nourished, and efficient. His demeanor is extremely professional while also being gracious and genuine. I look forward to my visits with Eric because I know I will leave feeling more embodied and connected.
