In popular culture, even among bodywork professionals, Rolfing is most often identified as a fascial mobilization technique delivered in a series of sessions (10 or more) called Rolf Structural Integration (RSI). However, Rolfing, a holistic approach, also includes a rich, somatic movement tradition that resulted in a substantial and comprehensive movement curriculum called Rolf Movement Integration (RMI). RSI and RMI grew out of a synthesis of the studies, interests, and passions of their founder, Dr. Ida Rolf. Together, RSI and RMI exemplify Dr. Rolf's philosophical approach concerning the nature of being human and the potential for improving health and well-being while living on a gravitational planet.
