Palpation, discrimination and integration

We were introduced to The Rolf Method, what Rolfers™ do can be summed up in three words: palpation, discrimination and integration.

As we shot this video we were fascinated with the Rolf Method being practiced right here in Shelburne.

  • Palpate, or touch the tissue, feeling for imbalances in tissue texture, quality and temperature to determine where we need to work.
  • Discriminate, or separate fascial layers that adhere and muscles that have been pulled out of position by strain or injury.
  • Finally, Rolf Integrates the body, relating its segments in an improved relationship, bringing physical balance in the gravitational field.
