Structural Integration (SI), known popularly as 'rolfing',1Capital R 'Rolfing®' and 'Rolfer®' are registered service marks of the Rolf Institute®, one of more than a dozen schools of Structural Integration. Therefore, 'Structural Integration', Dr. Rolf's original name for her work, is becoming the generic designation for this type of manipulative approach. The word 'rolfing' - a nickname for her work which came from her time in the Esalen Institute in California, and a name she herself disliked and only reluctantly accepted - remains, for the time being, the more publicly known term for this type of work. is a systematic programme of connective tissue manipulation. Parts 1 and 2 of this series defined the scope of SI practice, and presented a general outline of Dr. Rolf's multi-session protocol of the SI 'Recipe'. In this final part we present an alternate version based on longitudinal myofascial continuities. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
