About 3 hours ago Adrian Peterson NFL running back for the Minnesota Vikings tweeted this about Rolfing SI from his BlackBerry®.

Hello twitter world! I’m at my rolfing session right now! And its wonderful for the body, but its PAINFUL!

Here’s more about how the Minnesota Vikings use Rolfing® SI to help them get ready for the game and recover from injury.


The Today Show with Kathie Lee & HodaOn October 15, 2010 Jan Sultan, Rolf Institute Faculty member trained by Dr. Ida Rolf herself, and Rey Allen, Certified Advanced Rolfer™ will participate in a ten minute segment featuring Rolfing® Structural Integration on The Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda.

This segment comes on the heels of last week’s New York Times Style Section article about Rolfing SI which featured an interview with Rey Allen.

What a wonderful opportunity to expose our work to a wider audience. I hope you will tune in to watch and tell your friends, who may be interested in Rolfing SI, about this exciting event.

Update: The segment ended up being extremely abbreviated. It seems they ran out of time at the end of the show. Let’s give Kathie Lee & Hoda some feedback that the public is quite interested in learning more about this work, and would like to see a longer segment about Rolfing SI. Please go to their Facebook page and leave a note saying as much.

Here’s the clip of the segment from the msnbc website.

The Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration has created Rolfing SI National Awareness Week to honor the legacy of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, who developed Rolfing SI over fifty years ago. During these nine days, Certified Rolfers™ throughout the United States will hold local events and activities to promote the benefits of Rolfing SI. The Rolf Institute, headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, will host an open house on Thursday, September 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. featuring free Rolfing SI demonstrations to the general public along with the opportunity to meet renowned faculty and local Colorado Rolfers. More information about National Awareness Week is available at

Rolfing SI is a form of hands-on manipulation and education that systematically reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, to release, realign and balance the whole body. It may bring dramatic results, such as recovery from injury; reduction in chronic pain, including headache and back pain; improved ability to move with ease; reduction in physical and mental stress and tension; and increased balance and flexibility. Unique to the process is the incorporation of Rolf Movement® Integration which brings the structural work into activities of daily living allowing for greater ease and freedom throughout the body.

Since its inception in 1971, The Rolf Institute has trained and certified over 1700 Rolfers worldwide. The Rolf Institute, including its international sites, is the only organization that teaches Rolfing SI and graduates Rolfers™. Its rigorous training program is supported by an esteemed international faculty, some who trained directly with Dr. Ida P. Rolf, the school’s founder and developer of Rolfing SI.

*Discounted 3 and 10 session packages offered to those who come in for a Rolfing mini-session on September 20 or 24.
