Japanese Rolfing Association sponsored Rolf Movement workshop in Tokyo, Japan


The way for translation of 10 recipe of S.I. into the movement with the Art of Yield with Ma

The Art of Yield evokes structural change and integration in a new way by using the client’s system to make the decisions about where to go through the Oriental concept of MA (Space/timing) and HARA . The results shown bellow can be achieved through gentle and brief, but precisely timed touch without using classical myofascial release technique we typically use in Rolfing® S.I.


I saw many Structural Integrators  hurting themselves by using too much pressure in their practices. We are body/wellness professionals teaching others how to live and move with more ease. There should be a consistency between what the practitioner  is doing and what the practitioner is teaching the client. I as a Rolfer have been developing  a way to work with more ease. It allows the practitioner to discern and follow a more extensive range of change.
