This Continuing Education class is open to practitioners of Structural Integration who have graduated from an approved IASI school.

This class will serve as both review and introduction to the articular biomechanics of the Axial Complex. Touch, palpation and perception of motion versus dysfunction in the spine will be emphasized. Students will augment their understanding of the functions of the myofascia and ligamentous bed, either supporting or limiting motion. Students will further their skill in body reading local and global restrictions affect the whole structure, collaborate on designing integrating client centered Rolfing sessions, and demonstrate skill in assessing their interventions.

This class will involve lectures, palpation labs, body reading labs, and hands on exchange between students.

Tessy is an Advanced Rolfing Instructor. She received her BA in Environmental Biology in 1976. Once introduced to Rolfing SI in 1979, she was inspired to take her science and wholism explorations into the human realm. Rolfing was a natural pathway for this. She became an Advanced Rolfing instructor in 2002 and maintains a practice in Baltimore, MD.
