More About Alison Chee

Since our founding in 1991, our teachings have been based on the key elements of Dr Ida Rolf’s work on Structural Integration.

Rolfing® incorporates this and the study of new scientific research within the fields of Fascia, Functional Anatomy and Movement™ education. This combination makes it possible to master the challenges we face today.

There are scientific breakthroughs all the time and we ensures that our Faculty have the opportunity to continuously educate themselves. Being part of an International Faculty team means they cooperate together to ensure their teachings are always meeting the highest standard.  

Ida Rolf left us a profound foundation of her concepts and her practical approach. This foundation has to be developed further in the present and in the future while respecting the original intentions of the founder. And that’s what we do here at the Dr Ida Rolf Institute® Europe.

We offer Rolfing® training in three levels, continued education, advanced courses as well as courses in Movement™ and Anatomy to enrich your current occupation.
