Rolfing and Budokon-Integrating the Line

Jun 28, 2008
Dynamic capacity in the physical body is based on its dynamic capacity in all 3 planes of movement. The 3 normal planes of function in the body are frontal, sagital, and transverse. The bodies many movement potentials are a sum total of the combinations of movements produced in the 3 planes from each segment involved. Like wise the spines 3 primary functions are in these planes and are known as flexion/extension, side bend, and rotation.

Any inhibited or restricted tissue in any plane or any segment shifts the bodies house of cards. Rolfing provides the Certified Rolfer an opportunity to organize the body in gravity in all three planes. Budokon is a dynamic practice with closed and open chain technology that integrates the body through movement in all three planes. Budokon is a somatic science rich with resource and potential for structurally integrating our species.

Thanks to Dr. Ida Rolf and Liz Gaggini M.A., Advanced Rolfer, Structural Integrators are able to view the body much like a mathematical equation with its respective (x,y,z ) axis, points of inflection, and the ability to graph the asymmetrical body as an equation that provides predictable patterns of potential. Rolfing provides technology to manually manipulate the connective tissue matrix and the central nervous system to bring a being to the highest possible level of integrated structure and function.

The connective tissue of the body can be manipulated in three planes by lengthening (x), de-rotating (y) or fluffing (z) segments. When forming a hypothesis about how to approach the matrix of the body the Certified Rolfer assesses the structures movement capacity in the three planes and addresses the restriction in the tissue of each segment in all three planes. Each segments structural and functional potentials are married to each other, they are two sides of the same coin or like two mirrors facing each other. The reclamation of space is more fruitful with integrative movement to retrain the planes released that a new organization is possible.

Budokon is the premium movement science of our time and is being called the most intelligent practice on the planet. The combination of yoga, martial arts, limbic integration, and meditation incorporate and encompass many of the tools necessary for integrating our species. The cornerstone of the yogic practice is called Rolling Wave, a dynamic expression of flexion/extension in closed chain. The movement is slow and specific to each segment involved and is a highly efficient way to integrate the core. Dancing Dog is a movement that expresses dynamic movement in all three planes and is similar to flight of the eagle in the book How life moves by Kevin Frank and Caryn McHose.

Movement in Budokon is dynamic movement in all three planes, open and closed chain enabling tonic function potentials can be intended and realized. The martial arts consist of stand up and ground budo that is very explosive and efficient utilizing the acceleration-deceleration technology of Budokon. Limbic Integration is how the practice unearths latent potential in the reptilian brain to remind us of what it was like to move uninhibited from social and cultural stigmas. Zazen meditation is the way to witness breath and relationship to other as the body organizes and integrates the participation of the practice.

Rolfing and Budokon are two parts of a whole that utilize an inquiry of a greater potential. Hydrating, differentiating, and integrating the connective tissue matrix of the body can reduce resistance in the body. Budokon provides technique designed to bring the whole being to a higher level of order through dynamic and integrative movement enabling a more authentic expression.
