This seminar is built upon one of Rolfing's foundational ideas: that for every body there exists an ideal balance of tension within its fascial matrix. Straying beyond this range evokes an ever-worsening plague of imbalance, strain, stiffness and discomfort. It must be remembered that connective tissue wraps not only every muscle but also every organ and bone and supports the nervous and vascular systems; it thereby compartmentalizes, organizes and relates each part of the body to the whole of the body. Ida Rolf called fascia "the organ of relationship”. The significance of this in a session to session sense is that no matter how enticing some tight or disorganized niche of the body may be, it is always worthwhile to consider the place and ramifications of that finding in the context of the whole. This also means that, regardless of how dialed -in to a particular site of pain clients may become, myofascial bodywork falls apart once sessions deteriorate into chasing around pain complaints. For example, a client with pain "between the shoulder blades” may be feeling strain in the middle traps and rhomboids secondary to protracted scapulae. Working in the area of pain to increase blood flow is appropriate, but in terms of addressing the causative factors, working to lengthen short scapular protractor muscles would be far more valuable than trying to lengthen the already overstretched rhomboids and middle trapezius muscles. Although the general pattern of this example is common enough, the individual nature of each body means that we, as practitioners, must avoid the pitfall of assuming that structural patterns recur with exactitude from body to body. While the overarching characteristics of various patterns will show up with regularity, effective, personalized bodywork mandates fresh eyes, not only with each client, but with each session.
