La recherche sur le Rolfing®

La recherche était une priorité pour la fondatrice de l’intégration structurelle par le Rolfing®.

Pour la docteure Ida P. Rolf,  la recherche évaluée par les pairs était un cheval de bataille. Elle fut elle-même professeure agrégée au Rockefeller Institute (maintenant la Rockefeller University) à New York, après avoir reçu son doctorat en biochimie du College of Physicians and Surgeons de l’Université de Columbia, dans les années 1920.

C’est par des preuves visuelles que la docteure Ida P. Rolf documentait les changements obtenus par suite d’une série de dix séances d’intégration structurelle par le Rolfing®. Des photographes prenaient méticuleusement en photo la posture naturelle de ses clients avant et après les dix séances.

 

Les rolfers sont formés pour observer les différences individuelles de l’anatomie tridimensionnelle, une observation éclairée par l’anatomie et la physiologie, de même que par les descriptions détaillées de la structure humaine élaborées par Ida P. Rolf.

De nos jours, les rolfers utilisent des marqueurs cliniques comme indicateurs de succès des traitements, par exemple l’auto-évaluation, ainsi que des marqueurs visuels tels que la démarche, la posture debout, la rotation extrême des membres, la forme de la colonne vertébrale et le positionnement gravitationnel des grandes parties du corps. Ils recourent aussi à des marqueurs physiologiques comme les états traumatiques, la réaction émotionnelle, le niveau d’activité quotidienne, le niveau de douleurs et la qualité du sommeil.

On trouvera ci-dessous les articles et les livres écrit par la docteure Ida P. Rolf (en anglais seulement), et quelques études et publications sur l’intégration structurelle par le Rolfing®. Nous recommandons enfin le Fascia Research Congress (aussi en anglais) comme autre source de travaux évalués par les pairs et d’idées contemporaines sur les mécanismes de récupération à l’œuvre grâce à l’intégration structurelle comme thérapie par le toucher.
