KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) springs from the pioneering work of Dr Ida P Rolf (Rolfing), as developed, by Thomas Myers. KMI consists of a multi-session protocol (usually 12) of deep, slow fascial and myofascial manipulation, coupled with movement re-education. KMI is one of a number of schools that train practitioners in ‘Structural Integration’, Ida Rolf’s name for her own work. Structural Integration is practiced as an old-world craft with a 21st century comprehension of how your body structure works.
The KMI ‘brand’ of structural integration concentrates on doing deep, lasting, and significant work, with anatomical precision, blended with movement and sensitivity to the unfolding individual experience. The KMI ‘recipe’ for structural integration is based around the “Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians”, which are explored in a book by Thomas Myers.
