Welcome! Thanks for reading.  This website is dedicated to my Rolfing® Structural Integration practice.

I'm Meran Cassidy and I've been Rolfing here in Melbourne for 10 years.  My clinic is locaterd in Thornbury, just north of Melbourne.

Rolfing has been my love since meeting it during my Massage Certification back in 2004.  I hadn't heard ot it and was intreguied by the unusual name.

What's in a name?

Rolfing® is named after its founder Dr Ida Rolf.  She was originally a chemist and was one of the first people to study fascia.  She was interested in wholistic methods - homeopathy, osteopathy and yoga. She developed Structural Integration (Rolfing was its nickname) through an initial desire to help her loved ones.  This became a passion and she developed the 10 series - a group of sessions designed to halance and organised the body in gravity, which she taught to people across the world until her death in 1979.

There are now more than 1500 Rolfers worldwide and the modality is increasing in popularity for its capacity to assit people not only to recover from injuries but to feel better in their bodies.

I am proud to be one of only 5 Certified Rolfers in the Melbourne area.  I am a gentle Rolfer and I specialise in working with movement and coordiation.  Please explore my website to get a feel for what I do.
