Awareness Oriented

Structural Integration

~Based on the work of Ida Rolf~Rolfing~


Structural Integration is not massage

Ida Rolf developed a breakthrough in therapeutic bodywork based on a 10-session process.  It is a system of deep manipulation of the connective tissue restructuring the fascia and misalignment.  Basic rolfing (ST) consists of a series of 10 sessions each focusing on a different part of the body. This work aligns, encourages, and re balances the tissue within its gradational field and axis.  ST goes deep to muscle attachments and bones softening attachments, bringing release to adhesions, congestion, and stuck energy.  This highly effective modality lengthens, spreads and differentiates the connective tissue (fascia) which can become compromised from incorrect postural patterns, chronic injuries and more allowing pathways to be cleared for essential food and blood to enter their needed pathways for wholeness and recovery to come forth.

One of the multiple reasons this work is so effective and transformational on all levels is the result of educating clients in postural awareness.  When a person is not aware they are in a pattern that causes them pain, (emotional, mental, physical or any level) there is little hope of a positive change.  Awareness always precedes transformation as Energy follows intention.  Even a slight incorrect postural habit can affect the whole body as it is all connected..

Melissa will intuitively and structurally channel these sessions and use any or all of her healing modalities that will aid in the clients individual requirements.  It is essential for clients to maintain their postural awareness, which puts the lasting alignment in their hands.


It is beneficial and promoted to continue with your sessions if possible as this deep satisfying therapy is also a general maintence to keep the body and system juicy and free. 


Yoga and Structural Integration

A ten session series of SI can dramatically propel your yoga practice.  During the series you will achieve advancements in your practice that might take five years through yoga alone and with improved body usage and awareness, you can avoid yoga related injuries. When combining SI and Yoga, you get synergistic effects beyond the benefits of either alone.  Rolfing (SI) opens up new possibilities for movement, Yoga provides a way to explore and enhance the new movement patterns.

A medical intuitive is an alternative medicine practitioner who uses their self described intuitive abilities to find the cause of a physical or emotional condition.


Melissa Jude works with the subtle energy body, the etheric counterpart which inner penetrating the physical.  Energy follows intent

 She works with the higher realms and is able to aid her clients in awareness. 

Awareness proceeds transformation


While Structural Integration is primarily focused on the physical change in the body it affects the whole person.  To a large degree we are our belief systems and unless a person is taking care to consciously (through yoga, meditation, etc.)  they will hold it in their bodies and tissues.

Issues in the tissues

Align the physical structure and it will open up the individual potential. 

Structural integration is a way of restructuring the physical body while the intuitive work finds the root cause of a dis ease or dis harmony and solutions to resolve it.
