Dr Ida Rolf was undoubtedly one of the most significant women of the twentieth century. A great mind and pioneering thinker, and a creative scientist years ahead of her time, she spent much of her life exploring the human capacity for healing. Her education, professional career and life circumstances led her to explore various modalities that gradually evolved into what become known as â€œStructural Integrationâ€ and then took on the name â€œRolfing.â€ Essentially, Rolfing seeks to address the development and liberation of an individualâ€™s innate human potential, with the palliation of symptoms as an ancillary benefit. Dr Rolf was initially educated and trained within the empiricism of scientific academia and remained firmly rooted in those traditions. Her work was founded upon the physics of aligning the human body within the field of gravity. She integrated her scientific perspective with mind-body awareness without relying on a mystical Eastern philosophy to justify her conclusions.
Years have passed since Dr Rolfâ€™s death and those associates who worked and trained directly with her are not getting younger as the years pass. Yet their memories and the stories they have to share shine brightly in their eyes as vibrant times spent with a contemporary genius, a great healer and humanitarian who is as yet not fully appreciated or understood.
