Structural Integration, known as Rolfing
Daniel Burnes practices both Rolf Structural Integration and massage therapy.
Daniel received his training in Boulder Colorado at The Guild for Structural Integration.
The extensive curriculum consisted of 530 hours of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and integrative massage;
then followed by 1,000 hours of Rolf Structural Integration instruction and practice.
Rolf Structural Integration looks at the client as a whole. The approach is to release underlying patterns of
stress and impaired function by freeing up tissues (fascia) that have become "stuck" or fused together as
a result of traumas, repetitive motions, injuries and over use.
Rolf Structural Integration follows a ten session protocol developed and refined over 40 years by Dr. Ida P. Rolf.
This protocol opens the client's tissues systematically, accounting for the fact that everything in the body
is connected; meaning as one part is lengthened others are shortened.
To ensure balance and functionality the practitioner needs to work all tissues in a sequence that has
proven results and does not leave a body imbalanced.
Daniel greatly enjoys practicing therapeutic massage where he can blend his extensive knowledge of anatomy,
myofascial release, pressure point and neuromuscular therapy to each client's unique situation.
Whether his clients receive a massage session or Rolf Structural Integration, Daniel's approach
is to ensure the client that the depth and pressure of the massage is ultimately in their control.
In other words, the sensations should be pleasing and therapeutic in nature not taxing and painful.
Communication is the key to success.
