What is Structural Integration?

Structural Integration is a series approach to deep myo-fascial bodywork and movement education that aims to increase postural ease and movement freedom. The modality uses a system-wide lens to see the patterns and posture that may lead to less than optimal function and comfort in clients bodies. In a series of 12 Sessions, the practitioner uses manual techniques and movement education to help the clients body relate harmoniously with gravity.

The way you've used your body; hobbies, work, athletics, injuries, and experience are physically recorded as patterns not just in the muscles and nervous system, but in the fascial net that connects every cell in the body. Structural Integration addresses restrictions in fascia, progressively unwinding global patterns. Structural work can help enhance the way you use your bodies and help shed the patterns that are no longer serving them. 

Who is it for?

Everybody! 

This work helps you gain awareness, increase mobility, and deepen your sense of support and comfort in your bodies. This work is anyone who are curious about their body, for people who think "I am too young to feel this old", for people who want to enhance their movement practice. It is not a treatment for acute injury or mental health or a cure for any disease processes. However, it can help you feel stronger and more supported in the challenges you face. 

What are the Benefits?

By taking on this project, clients may feel more easeful in your body, areas of discomfort may feel more supported or may be eliminated, and they may become more aware of the strength and resources their body holds for them. Many clients experience a sense of renewed youth, lightness, height, and increased capacity for breath. Structural Bodywork is wonderful ‘tonic’ for posture and movement, but it is no cure-all.  The tonic offered by the Series is one comprised of improvements in body awareness and alignment, soft tissue organization, tissue hydration and homeostatic balance. Many clients find that discomfort and limitations are reduced.
