Book Description
This seminal work made its debut in 1977, and it has since remained the most important reference for Rolfers around the world. In this new edition, the late Dr. Rolf illustrates her theory and practice of Structural Integration, which brings the body into alignment and balance by manipulation of the connective tissue. Rolfing has helped thousands of people to stand taller, look better, move with greater ease, and have a greater sense of vitality and well-being.

This is the original and classic text, with more than 600 illustrations and photographs.

An indispensible reference for the hundreds of Rolfers in this country, it will also appeal to other professional bodyworkers and the interested lay person.

Reviews
Larry Dossey, M.D. Author of "Meaning and Medicine" and
"Rosie Spiegel is a healer. Read her book."

from the Forward, Dean Juhan, author of "Job's Body"
"The teaching and learning described in this book are precisely the insights and the strategies for letting go of limiting models and for endlessly exploring the ever-renewed growing edge of our sense of the optimum. This is not merely healthcare, this is engagement in personal evolution. And coupled with the other branches of education and medicine, its results will not merely return us to a familiar functional norm after injury or illness, but to astonish us with possibilites and capacites we never dreamt we could own."

Book Description
Written by an expert on alternative bodywork, this book presents techniques for manipulating the soft tissues of the back in a safe, simple manner. The method avoids the high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusting techniques employed by chiropractors. Instead, it utilizes the intuitive sense of somatic bodyworkers combined with the proven theory and technique of Rolfing to provide safe and effective treatment.

Book Info
International Rolf Institute, Scottsdale, AZ. A guide to rolfing, or structural integration, with emphasis on the problem of joint fixations at the root of common soft-tissue pain syndromes. Focuses special attention on issues of back pain. Shows how to release joint fixations in the spine, sacrum, pelvis and ribcage using a gentle type of rolfing. Halftone illustrations. Softcover.

A Reader Review
Most Accessible Book on this subject Yet!, May 19, 2001
Reviewer: Valerie Berg from Albuquerque, NM
This book is easy, reader friendly and accessible for somatic practitioners to understand clearly what one is feeling both at the boney and tissue levels. Jeff has given us his years of practicing this in distilling the information of spinal biomechanics into linguistically and technically clear steps for easing joint fixations and facet restrictions anywhere along the spine via soft tissue techniques and a whole body approach. Excellent drawings and photographs accompany the text for even further clarity. The anatomy is all there plus easy ways to understand what to do even when you don't understand why. The book is a tour of every facet of the spine from sacrum to occiput in the possible things one might feel and wonder what the heck to do about it rather than vague mashing around. Included is the constant reference to working with the whole body/person. Anyone "working" on bodies would benefit from having this manual and keeping it close at hand.

Book Description
jondavdan@yahoo.com from Reno, NV. , 9 August, 1999
A way of life!
Some Tai-Chi masters say that you should strive to do Tai-Chi so well that you don't do it anymore. Mary Bond's book BALANCING YOUR BODY is a western approach to this ideal. This is a method of exploration, discovery and action to achieve dynamic balance and harmony in a constantly changing internal/external environment. My personal situation precludes formal exercise in definite locations or with groups. Of the extensive search that I've made, her methods are the most interesting and potentially the most useful. However it goes in practice, I will always thank her for educating me to the difference between symmetry and balance.

A reader from Gedved, Denmark , 15 March, 1999
Simply a brilliant guide on how to move ones body
Having read about and tried a lot of psycho-body-therapy techniques, I was very impressed to find something this different and efficient. Using relaxation as the primary vehicle of exploration, amazing results occur - fx improving movement flexibility more that "hardcore" streching. Mary Bond guides one to experience ones body in a new, more rich and subtle way. Unlike many related books, this one offers lots of concrete knowledge and advice, Mary Bond is not afraid to share her insights. I cannot recommend this book highly enough - it's simply brilliant.
