Benefits of Rolf Structural Integration and Anatomy in Motion
Overall, at The Posture Studio we strive to improve your quality of life and heighten your sense of well-being in all that you do. We work collaboratively to refine and improve your abilities in sports, work, favorite hobbies, and day-to-day activities.
Mary has studied Neural Mobilization over the past few years.
Neural Mobilization integrates effectively with Rolf Structural Integration as they are both a whole body approach and help facilitate healing at a deeper level.
Why work with nerves? You cannot work with muscles without affecting nerves and vice versa. We have roughly 72 KM of nerves in our body and roughly 15,000 nerve endings per sq. inch (a lot of these near the skin's surface) and if some of those nerves are restricted, that can lead to chronic pain.
When the body's nerve fascia is restricted and fails to glide, the entire system becomes pre-occupied with the irritated nerves. Reducing this “pre-occupation” is necessary for reducing pain and restoring optimal function. Tension in the nerves can lead to inhibited muscle contraction, restricted spinal movement, restrictions in organs, altered coordination in the brain and asymmetric postural displays.
Neural Mobilization finds areas of neural fascial restriction/inflammation that leads to structural imbalances and then works to release these restrictions through specific hands on release techniques in areas of the body where the nerves are close to the surface or bunched together. For example nerves that affect the legs can be accessed in the stomach near the colon, once these are released the leg and foot is stronger and more flexible.

Postural Changes from Rolf Structural Integration
Below are pictures that show the changes that happened to posture after the 10 series of Rolf Structural Integration!
Client Posture Improvements
This is a before and after photo of a client who attended The Posture Studio. The picture clearly show the changes that occurred in the client's body after receiving the 10 series of Rolf Structural Integration.
See how one of my client's posture and
back has changed.
The first picture shows the strain in Tess' upper back and neck before receiving Structural Integration.
After 10 sessions the strain has not only eased and lessened, she also now stands and feels taller. Tess Hunneybell "It's a miracle, I never thought I would be able to stand up straight, I have a new back and neck" .

So after 7 years of, a harness, a brace, in casts twice, bed time splints, reverse-lass boots, orthotics in all shoes, endless amounts of Physio along with Structural Integration and lots and lots of hard work from Naoibhe we finally got the news we've been praying for...NO OPERATIONS.
Just want to say a massive thank you to Mary O' Leary for all her hard and amazing work she's carried out on Naoibhe this last 9 months. We were told in January that Naoibhe would need an operation on both feet 😢😢 not taking this lying down we looked into alternative therapy to try help her and came across Mary who does The Rolf Method of Structural Integration, having never heard of this before we gave it a try. After 10 sessions the improvement in Naoibhe's legs, feet and posture is unbelievable. So much so the specialist in Dublin couldn't believe the improvement....who even had a date set for her op as she was expecting to carry it out.
So anyone who suffers with pain or posture issues etc. I cannot recommend The Posture Studio enough. We will always have this road ahead of us but the most important thing is we've no operation to go through and that's all that matters. Everything else we've already overcome!!

I came for Structural Integration as I had severe hip, groin and back pain that resulted in me limping very badly, preventing me from exercise or even walking. I had gone several places for help but none could. During my second pregnancy, this pain increased resulting in me having to wear the pelvic belt. After that pregnancy, I came to Mary to see if she could help. Since then I’ve had a dramatic improvement, I ‘m no longer in pain or limp. I have been pregnant since and I felt really comfortable and remained active throughout the pregnancy. I am now back exercising and playing with my children, thanks to Mary and Structural Integration.

“I feel great, I feel taller like my body has been pulled up with a string. My body feels looser, I stand all day with my job, and now when I am standing I am more comfortable. I no longer feel like an old man when I am sitting in the car I can easily sit up straight and don’t slouch anymore. My shoulders, back and neck are looser and the movement is better. I used to cramp in my legs while cycling but I haven’t had any cramps since I started receiving Structural Integration at the Posture Studio. I’m delighted with the work I have received from Mary”.
