Structural Integration has a reputation for greatly improving the quality
of professional and daily activity. As well, athletic and artistic performance
often gets noticeably better. Chronic pain is reduced and often disappears
Olympic Medalist figure skater Brian Orser and concert pianist Richard Cass saw their professional performance improve considerably. Brian Orser even gained five-eighths of an inch in height, which is not uncommon through Structural Integration. Richard Cass got rid of a numbness problem in his right hand and testifies that his creative energy increased and his performance improved, both technically and artistically. (You can read about Brian Orser, Richard Cass and dozens of others in Rolfing: Stories of Personal Empowerment, Briah Anson, Heartland Personal Growth Press.)
No matter who we are we all have something in common, something important
and precious; our body. And we all have the possibility of taking advantage
of Structural Integration to reap benefits similar to those reaped by
Brian Orser and Richard Cass.
