Dr. Ida Rolf

Rolfing was developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf (1896-1979) over the course of her lifetime. Originally a biochemist, Dr. Rolf also studied many other disciplines, including osteopathy, yoga, and homeopathy, while developing a unique way of working with fascia (connective tissue) to organize the body in relationship to gravity. She called her work Structural Integration, but others commonly referred to it as “Rolfing.” The word Rolfing® is now a registered service mark of the Rolf Institute.
