Ida Rolf dedicated a good part of her life to formulating and teaching, what she called, the 'recipe' - a systematic program of postural re-patterning in ten sessions, using connective tissue manipulation and sensorimotor movement education. The European Guild is one of the schools continuing the inquiry into the ‘recipe’, without adding elements from other modalities. Peter Melchior, Neal Powers and Emmett Hutchins, all first generation Rolfers, trained in Structural Integration by Ida Rolf herself, are at the origin of our lineage, and all of our senior instructors were originally their students.
Ida Rolf left Emmett Hutchins the following 'Koan':
If you truly understand the basic intention/key to the first three hours, you will have discovered the entire process and intention of Structural Integration.
Emmett Hutchins said, it took him 20 years to discover a moderately accurate answer to that question.
The European Guild for Structural Integration provides a home for all practitioners, working with and practicing, a systematic, re-educational approach to the human body, thus continuing the inquiry into the "Koan" Emmett Hutchins was assigned. We are regular members of the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI) and our training programs are recognized by IASI.read more
