  "So many therapists are striking at the pattern of disease, instead of supporting the pattern of health. One of the things that you as Rolfers must always emphasize is that you are not practitioners curing disease: you are practitioners invoking health. Invocation is possible by an understanding of what the pattern is, the structural pattern of health. As you bring a man’s structure to conform to that pattern of health you achieve health. You invoke health." -Ida Rolf Talks About Rolfing and Physical Reality Edited by Rosemary Feitis

"We are not truly upright; we are only on our way to being upright. This is a metaphysical consideration. One of the jobs of a Rolfer is to speed that process along. We want to get a man out of the place where gravity is his enemy. We want to get him into a place where gravity reinforces him and is a friend, a nourishing force." - Ida Rolf

"Preparing the body to receive order precedes establishing order. Changes introduced anywhere in the body must be capable of being sustained and integrated by the whole." - Jeff Maitland and Jan Sultan

"I don't know why the pelvis needs to be horizontal. It isn't in any other animals. I do know that the horizontalizing the pelvis promotes a verticality that changes animals into humans." - Ida Rolf

"Rolfing is more than a recipe; it is an understanding of the shifting of function." - Ida Rolf

"I don't know what energy is; I know I can change the way it flows and thus change a person’s behavior – life. Rolfers are supposed to be experts in detecting and dealing with change in energy patterns." - Ida Rolf

"Structural Integration is a transfer of responsibility from Rolfer to Rolfee. This is basic to our work, and one of the most important responsibilities of the Rolfer is to encourage the Rolfee to successfully take the responsibility." - Ida Rolf

"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." - T S Elliot
