Rolfing® Structural Integration | Anchorage, Alaska


Linda Jordan working on a kneeLinda Jordan is an Certified Advanced Rolfer™ who has practiced in Anchorage since completing her basic training at the the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration in 1982. Raised in Canada, she initially worked in atmospheric science until her own sessions of Rolfing® led her into the study of Rolfing itself and a complete career change.

She completed her advanced level Rolfing training in 1987 and continues to study and broaden her knowledge. In addition to continuing education in Rolfing, she has also studied:

  • 1983 Craniosacral Therapy – techniques as pioneered by Dr. Upledger.
  • 1996 Strain-Counterstrain – an extremely gentle technique, also known as positional release.  It addresses specific trigger points/acute muscular pain and spasms created by old injuries or bad habits. By placing the clients body in a comfortable and completely pain free position of rest, it allows the muscles to ‘reset’ to normal so healing can then take place.
  • 1995 Muscle Energy – eases chronic muscle tension causing joint stiffness; effective for restricted joints and spastic muscles, especially when the symptoms are aggravated by a particular posture or  position. Improves range of motion.
  • 1993 Visceral Manipulation – a gentle, almost delicate hands-on therapy to relieve any abnormal points of tension around internal organs that are referring strain or discomfort elsewhere.
  • Spinal Biomechanics and many other related manual and movement therapies including those specific to particular body parts such as lower back, shoulder, hands/wrists, head/neck, knees.

She has a very thorough and technically precise approach to Rolfing and listens closely to how you think your body needs to change and just how it feels to you. That combination lets her tailor each session specifically to your individual situation so you get the best and fastest possible results.
