Hemberger Structural Integration Now Accepts Insurance

Structural integration, also known as Rolfing, is known to be effective in reducing chronic back pain, improving posture and spine health, however, lack of insurance coverage often hinders patients from seeking it as a solution. Until now. Hemberger Structural Integration is pleased to announce a new association with Barefoot Rehabilitation Clinic in Denville, and is now accepting insurance benefits for out-of-network coverage.

The value of structural integration as a corrective therapy is well-supported. Dr. Valerie D. Hunt and Dr. Wayne W. Massey of the UCLA Department of Kinesiology completed a five-year controlled study in 1977, entitled, “A Study of Structural Integration from Neuromuscular, Energy Field and Emotional Approaches.” They found that subjects who had received Rolfing exhibited:

1. Smoother, larger, and less constrained extraneous
movements

2. Greater movement efficiency and improved neuromuscular balance

3. More dynamic and energetic body movements, with less fatigue

4. A more erect carriage with less obvious strain to maintain held positions

5. Increased emotional calmness, a greater sense of wellbeing, and decreased anxiety.

More recent research findings include the positive effects of Rolfing on the autonomic nervous system and benefits of Rolfing for chronic back pain.

Ed Hemberger LMT, ART, a certified practitioner of structural integration and Dr. Thomas Findley MD, PhD, a certified advanced Rolfer are accepting 5 new clients through January 8, 2018, plus offer a free 30-minute consultation.

Locations include offices in Boonton, Livingston and Manhattan. For more information, call 973-462-3112 or visit HembergerStructuralIntegration.com.
