Research on Structural Integration

The following is a summary of some major findings: Ida Rolf performed a study entitled Project Breakthrough in 1963 in which she discovered that children that had received Structural integration work exhibited better muscle tone, better alignment, and improved social responsiveness.

Dr. Valerie D. Hunt and Dr. Wayne W. Massey of the UCLA Department of Kinesiology conducted a five-year study finishing in 1977 entitled A Study of Rolfing Structural Integration from Neuromuscular, Energy Field and Emotional Approaches. They found the following in subjects that had received Structural Integration:

1. Extraneous movements were smoother, larger, and less constrained.

2. There was greater movement efficiency and improved neuromuscular balance.

3. Body movements were more dynamic and energetic with less fatigue.

4. Carriage was more erect and there was less obvious strain to maintain held positions.

5. There was increased emotional calmness and sense of well-being, and decreased anxiety.
