Who We Are

John Schewe

johnScheweLivingBodySeriesJohn is the creator and developer of The Living Body Series®. He has been a Certified Rolfer since 1987 and did his Advanced Rolfing Training in 1991. He began teaching anatomy and physiology for the Blue Cliff School of Massage in New Orleans, La. in 1990 and helped develop their A&P course curriculum that is still in use today.

In 1996 John began teaching A&P for the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration in Boulder, Co. He is currently the Chair of the Life Sciences Group at The Rolf Institute and is active in curriculum development and improvement. John’s goal is to make the study of anatomy and physiology both interesting and enjoyable. He feels that this material is extremely important to the practicing bodywork professional and that the study of A&P should not be a daunting task.
