About Ida Rolf

Dr. Ida P. Rolf was the founder of Structural Integration.

In 1920 she earned her Ph.D. in Bio-Chemistry from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University. She worked for twelve years at the Rockefeller Institute in the Chemotherapy and Organic Chemistry Departments. She also studied mathematics and atomic physics in Zurich and Homeopathic Medicine in Geneva.

In the 1930's, unsatisfied with the available medical treatment, Dr. Rolf explored Osteopathy, Chiropractic Medicine, Yoga, the Alexander Technique, and Korzybski's work on the consciousness. 

By the 1940's, she had developed and experienced many breakthroughs with the work she did on chronically disabled persons unable to find help elsewhere.

Since then, Dr. Rolf further refined her technique and training program.

Graduates have extensive knowledge in anatomy, physiology, body awareness, and a sensitivity to psychological mediation.

There are several schools now that conduct the training of Dr. Rolf's work and are involved in research to enhance the understanding of gravity's relationship to the human structure.

Three of the most well known schools teaching the Rolf Method of Structural Integration are;
