This article draws on material presented in the May 2009 workshop “An Energetic Foundation for Rolfing: A Bridge Between Dr. Rolf’s Recipe and the Wisdom of Each Individual’s Body,” taught by Bob Schrei, Certified Advanced Rolfer, and Ray McCall, Advanced Rolfing instructor. The stated goal of the workshop was to teach SourcePoint Therapy (which was developed by Bob Schrei and his wife Donna Thomson) and to explore it as a means to accomplish the goals of Rolfing Structural Integration. The claim is that SourcePoint Therapy “aligns and relates a person’s physical body to the energetic blueprint that Dr. Rolf refers to in her book Structural Integration” (quoted from class description in Fascial Flashes Vol. 17, No. 2). We were also promised a body-scanning technique that would enable us to “locate blockages [and] discontinuities which result in global patterns of dysfunction and compensation,” and which “informs the questions: ‘Where do we start [an intervention]?’, ‘Where do we go next?’ and ‘When are we done?’” Answering these questions would enable a practitioner to effectively strategize a session or a Rolfing series, be it basic or advanced. My purpose in writing this article is to present a clinically effective way of working in the energetic taxonomy.
