Q: How is structural integration different from Rolfing?
A: Structural Integration and Rolfing are essentially the same. Rolfing is a nickname given to Dr. Rolf’s work in the 1960’s and is now a trademark of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado.
Q: Doesn’t Structural Integration hurt?
A: Many people have heard that Structural Integration or Rolfing is painful. In years previous, it has been. However the approach to the bodywork has evolved and today’s therapists generally always remain within the pain tolerance of the patient.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Each session is $80, and payment plans can be arranged. Insurance is not accepted at the moment, but keep checking with us, as we plan to become credentialed with Montana insurance companies.
Q: How often are the sessions?
A: The sessions are usually given once per week, but a longer break in between sessions is acceptable. (Up to five weeks apart)
Q: Will I need more therapy after the ten series?
A: After the initial ten sessions, we allow the body a period of time to adjust to its new structure. This period of time can range from 4 months to a year.
After this period the client can come back for advanced work or periodic “tune ups” depending on their needs. These are recommended especially if the client has had chronic pain or severe trauma.
