    A unique oportunity to learn more about Structural Integration / Rolfing and its founder, asside from the major textbook.

    Asside from Dr. Ida P. Rolf's texbook, this is a unique opportunity to learn about Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing. Dr. Rolf died in 1979. Her major textbook opens many new questions. In this book, Dr. Rolf talks informally about the work.
