About the Speaker:

Bruce Schonfeld was Certified in Rolfing Structural Integration in 1994 through the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute. He has trained extensively with Dr. Rolf’s heirs Jan Sultan, Michael Salveson, and Jim Asher including completing the Advanced Rolfing Training three times. Bruce has studied Visceral Manipulation through the Barral Institute since 1997 including 300+ contact hours directly with Jean-Pierre Barral D.O. as well as considerable training with Alain Croibier D.O., and Gail Wetzler PT. 

Bruce has organically developed and taught Continuing Education classes in Structural Integration and Fascial Integration since 1996. His Fascial Integration classes are offered internationally through the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators. Essentially a systems anatomy approach to Structural Integration, Fascial Integration bridges the anatomical gap between the musculoskeletal, membranous, and visceral systems. With an emphasis on systems thinking, clinical reasoning, and hands-on myofascial manipulation techniques, Fascial Integration can be thought of as Structural Integration meets Visceral Manipulation. 

Bruce has studied with and had considerable work from Peter Levine PhD, the Founder of Somatic Experiencing. Bruce has studied extensively with Continuum founder Emilie Conrad and other movement based therapies. Bruce’s interest in somatic psychology, client-centered therapy, biopsychosocial factors, and the therapeutic container have underscored his lifelong learning focused on addressing the whole person. Bruce specializes in helping clients with pain and/or orthopedic problems and maintains a private practice in Santa Monica California.
