Structural Integration is a scientifically validated form of body work / therapy.
This work focuses less on the deep muscles, but more on their protective layer, called fascia. Muscles are contracting tissues that give the body and organs physical movement and help to provide a containment vessel for the organs. The fascia surrounds the muscles, bones and organs in the body.
The fascia gives muscles their shape and the body its structure. Structural Integration aligns and balances the body by lengthening and re-positioning the fascia. A full course of structural integration is performed in ten sessions. Each session is approximately one hour in length. The ten sessions are administered progressively; each session builds upon the last until complete integration of the body is achieved.
With a healthy body, the process of Structural Integration includes balancing the body in segments. The purpose is achieving vertical alignment from balancing the body from front to back, side to side, top to bottom and inside to outside. When a body is aligned and balanced it moves with greater ease. It requires less energy to function. Good posture is automatic and breathing is easier. The body becomes more flexible, more coordinated and athletic performance improves.
