Research on Rolfing® Structural Integration

The RISI Research Committee supports and guides Rolfing Structural Integration research. The Committee actively solicits contributions for research into structural integration through the RISI donation page. We also solicit and evaluate research proposals for possible financial support through the RISI. We greatly appreciate your financial tax deductible donations and your research proposal!

For the purpose of conducting basic and applied research, the RISI has set up the RISI Research Committee. The Committee reviews research proposals and solicits donations to support meritorious research projects.  Again, we greatly appreciate your tax-deductible donations and your research proposals.

The RISI focuses on research literacy of its graduates by including research in its curriculum.
