Dr. Ida Rolf


Dr. Ida Rolf (1896-1979) gained her PhD in biological chemistry from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in the USA.  Her main influences in her thinking about the body were hatha yoga, osteopathy, Alexander Technique and homeopathy. Over a lifetime of observation and practical application, she realised that by making structural changes to the body via the soft tissue, she could evoke improved function.
