Rolfing® Structural Integration
Terry J Riehl Certified Rolfer™
"When the tone of the soft tissue is balanced, there is a sensation of lightness in the body. The masses of head, thorax and pelvis are no longer dragged out of true by their own weight;the structure presents less resistance and gravity can flow through"
Ida Pauline Rolf
About Rolfing® SI and the 10-Series
Rolfing® Structural Integration is a system of manipulations that uses a holistic model for balancing the connective tissues of the body, AKA "Fascia", in gravity. This is achieved through a framework of 10 sessions focusing on specific segments of the body, with the goals of balance and support. The first three sessions are called "Sleeve" sessions, as they are intended to provide space for the "Core" to adapt to in the next four sessions. The three remaining sessions are the "Integrative" sessions which are used to connect and integrate function through the body in gravity.
My name is Terry J Riehl. I'm a Helena native, graduating from Capital High School in 1994. After working in a variety of fields, and suffering a variety of injuries that never seemed to heal all the way, my own body was suffering from the symptoms of structural collapse. Seeking help led me on a journey through the medical community and the referral system. After coming to the conclusion that the pills weren't the solution I was looking for, I started exploring alternatives which eventually led me to a Rolfer®, and I completed my own 10-Series. The changes that I experienced in my body inspired me to attend the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration in Boulder, CO, graduating in March of 2017.
I live north of Helena with my wife and two dogs.
