This Continuing Education class is open to Certified Rolfers and practitioners of Structural Integration who have completed an IASI Recognized SI Program.

​This class will serve as both review and introduction to the articular biomechanics of the Axial Complex. Touch, palpation, and perception of “normal” motion versus dysfunction in the spine will be emphasized. Students will augment their understanding of the functions of the myofascial and ligamentous bed, either supporting or limiting motion. Students will further their skill in body reading —how local and global restrictions affect the whole structure, collaborate on designing and integrating client-centered Rolfing sessions, and demonstrate skill in assessing their interventions.

Upon completion of the class, students will reliably identify and intervene with restrictions found in the axial complex. Students will identify the restriction or restrictions and apply the appropriate touch and technique to ease or change these restrictions.

About the Instructor

Tessy Brungardt received her BA in Environmental Biology in 1976 from New College in Sarasota, FL. In her studies and following career she enjoyed exploring the interface of observing the natural world and the science of how things worked. Once she was introduced to Rolfing® Structural Integration in 1979, she was inspired to take this exploration into the human realm. She became a Certified Rolfer® in 1985 and a Certified Advanced Rolfer in 1988. Tessy completed her Rolf Movement® Certification in 1994. She also became certified to teach for the Rolf Institute in 1994 and became an Advanced Instructor for the Rolf Institute in 2002.
