Rolfing/ Rolf therapy/ Structural Integration is a massage technique using deep manipulation of the fascia (connective tissue) to restore the body's natural alignment.

The word Rolfing was coined from the surname of Ida Rolf. Dr. Ida Pauline Rolf (1896-1979) developed this method in 1950s. According to Rolf, bound up fascia (or 'connective tissue') often restricts opposing muscles from functioning independently from each other, much as when water, having crystallized, forms the hard, unyielding ice. In her practice Rolfing, she aimed to separate the bound up fascia by deeply separating the fibers manually so as to loosen them up to allow effective movement patterns. During a Rolfing session, the patient generally lies down and is guided through specific movements. During these, the Rolfer manipulates the fascia until it returns to its original length. This takes place over the course of 10 one-hour sessions, with a specific goal for each session, creating cumulative results.
