Great pictures, interesting discussion, and superb organization.

If you travel a lot, I recommend this program, which can be done anywhere.

Rolfing: Reestablishing the Natural Alignment and Structural Integration of the Human Body for Vitality and Well-Being by Ida P. Rolf, Ron Thompson. Inner Traditions Intl Ltd; Revised edition (November 1990); ISBN: 0892813350. The tome. I haven't read this edition. The editing was very poor in the earlier versions (what do you expect from a bunch of hippies...). But if you can look past the surface, the material is profound. If you want to learn about Rolfing from the master, this is the source.
