I was so happy to hear Dr. van der Kolk talk about using Structural Integration (aka Rolfing) as a way to eliminate the physical patterns that allow trauma to define a person's posture, movement, and experience of being in their body. I have witnessed countless instances of clients being freed from the literal, soft-tissue restrictions that had been hindering their growth and progress, in ways that talk therapy could never begin to touch (pun intended).

Some of these memories were deeply lodged in the body, even though the conscious mind had long forgotten.
