Rolf method of structural integration

Roberto specializes in the Rolf Method of Structural Integration (S.I.). 

Structural Integration is a specific soft tissue manipulation which uses slow, purposeful strokes to change and align the client's body (or structure), within gravity.


This hands-on therapy makes very positive change by working with the client's myo-fascial body.  Myo means muscle and fasciae is the connective tissue present throughout the body which defines a person's shape or form. 


Much of chronic pain and dysfunction in the human body can be attributed to the shortening and binding of the fascial body due to injury, repetitive stress and/or postural issues.


For over half a century Structural Integration practitioners have used the techniques created by Dr. Ida P. Rolf to affect permanent and powerful healing in people of all ages all around the world.


Roberto has combined his advanced knowledge of anatomy and the human structure in movement to apply the Rolf Method to his clients from 10 years of age to well over 90. Rolf Method Therapy in Phoeni

FAQs: How quickly will I get relief?

image88

Patients often ask, " How soon will I feel better?" or, "How many sessions will it take for me to get relief?". Of course each person's body will respond differently to treatment, but most patients feel relief in the first session. The important thing is to take action, get the treatments, start reducing the inflammation and restriction. 

Afterwards, the body's natural healing process can continue you along the recovery path.  Acute (new) injuries can sometimes resolve in 1-3 sessions. If a condition has being going on for weeks or months, then more time may be needed for better integration. Start today!
