“Structural Integration is about the whole Person; It is about Fascia and Feeling. The sensation of moving from Weakness into strength, the exhilaration of owning a new part of oneself, the immediate and simultaneous reeducation of ones being and action, the joy of self empowerment, waking up: These are the experiences of Structural Integration.”

OFFERING : TEN SESSIONS

goals vary, side effects include,..

2: integrity of function
Structural Integration achieves its remarkable results by manipulating the myofascial system (the muscles and connective tissue called fascia which surrounds and penetrates the muscles and all other structures of the body). Our bodies must deal with gravity like other material structures. When we are out of balance, gravity drags us down just as it drags down a building that has lost its architectural integrity.

Whether from poor posture, injury, illness or emotional distress, an unbalanced body is at war with gravity. We experience this battle as pain, stress and depleted energy. When the body loses its architectural integrity, fascia shortens and thickens in characteristic patterns of strain and tightness.

Through refined and intelligent pressure applied by the hands of the Rolfing practitioner, fascia is softened and lengthened allowing the body to right itself effortlessly in gravity.
