ABSTRACT For years, Jan H. Sultan, Advanced Rolfing® instructor of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute®, has been developing a coherent approach to the mysteries of the sacrum from the structural integration perspective. In this interview, Sultan gives insight into some of the biomechanical and physiological movements of the sacrum and a few suggested applications to resolving common strain patterns in the low back region.

ABSTRACT The internal-external model, originally published in Notes on Structural Integration, titled “Towards a Structural Logic,” in 1986 by Jan H. Sultan, is a foundational understanding of the nature of the human structure. Sultan has written a second edition of this model, informed by more than fifty years of practice and teaching. He describes the inspiration for and the history of the internal-external model and the value of the structural types – congruent internal, congruent external, and incongruentmixed types. The internal-external model is a structural language that was early to identify lines of force transmission. It is a structural description of the inherited direction of growth and adaptations visible in the fascial network.

ABSTRACT The axial complex is a specific concept in the Rolfing® Structural Integration paradigm. In this article, Jan H. Sultan presents how Rolfers draw from embryology to conceptualize what anatomy and physiology are represented by the axial complex: the neurocranium, the spine, the sacrum, and their associated soft tissues. Fryette’s laws are a useful base when working with axial tissue, as well as Jean-Pierre Barral’s, DO, motility concept and John Upledger’s, DO, third rhythm. Sultan describes how he synthesizes information to execute the specific technology of Rolfing SI.

ABSTRACT In this interview with Jan Sultan, he talks about Dr. Rolf’s Seventh Hour philosophy and practical execution of ‘putting the head back on’. Sultan presents his key concepts of the head, the differentiation of the viscerocranium from the neurocranium. Nose work, tongue work, and palate work are discussed.
