Unlocking the Potential of Adaptive Bodywork Structural Integration

A Legacy of Integration and Adaptation

Ida P. Rolf & Tom Myers

In the vast landscape of manual therapy, few modalities shine as brightly as Adaptive Bodywork Structural Integration. Its transformative potential can be traced back to the foundational work of Ida Rolf, the mastermind behind Rolfing. It was her vision of the human body’s interconnectedness that ushered in a new era of holistic treatment. Building upon this legacy, luminaries like Tom Myers further refined our understanding through Anatomy Trains Structural Integration. ABSI emerged as a harmonization of these profound philosophies, creating a unique beacon of holistic healing.

ABSI’s Core Mission: Healing & Education

Our ethos at ABSI is two-fold:

Why Choose Structural Integration? Why ABSI?

The Anatomy Trains

At the heart of ABSI is a belief in transformative, holistic healing. It’s not just about addressing symptoms; it’s about catalyzing a profound change, reshaping an individual’s relationship with their body. As Ida Rolf beautifully articulated, “When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself.” At ABSI, we aspire to be that catalyst, guiding each person towards holistic well-being.
