Actively Create Space In Your Body

Adaptive Bodywork is a holistic system that
removes pain from your body
by adaptively re-configuring
your connective tissue support system
to optimize and enhance your every movement.

  • Adaptive Bodywork stems from Rolf Structural Integration and is developed by human structural integrators

  • Practitioners of ABW view your body holistically and use their bodies adaptively to do the work on a variety of surfaces.
  • The work realigns and properly tensions your fascial support network, laying down a new and more youthful structural architecture.

  • Unlike other therapies, you are engaged and participate actively during the entire process.

Adaptive Bodywork on Back

Unlike traditional massage techniques, Adaptive Bodywork unravels patterns of deeply held tension in your body by focusing on your fascia support network. Fascia is the biological fabric that holds us together, a connective tissue network. It’s everywhere from your head to your toes, inside-to-out. It is an interwoven system of fibrous connective tissue found throughout the body. The fascia is a support network attaching, stabilizing, enclosing and separating your muscles and organs. By working on tensions that are deeply connected to the mind, the nervous system, and the myofasical/muscular structure, your ABW practionner enables you to remodel your fascia to enhance your body’s every movement.

If you want to improve your physical/emotional well-being or
enhance your athletic performance and
live a more balanced, integrated and functional life,
Adaptive Bodywork is for you!
