Dr. Ida Rolf began studying the practice of realigning the body's fascia in the early 1920s, as she was one of the first women with a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and had a number of different research projects. She developed rolfing in the 1930s and by the 1950s was presenting the practice the North American chiropractic association. Over the next two decades she began teaching the technique to students, and by the early 1970s the first Rolfing school and institute was founded, a non-profit called the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration.
