HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

By lengthening and opening the patterns in the connective tissue. As a result, the thickened, toughened tissue becomes soft, rehydrated and more pliable, thus allowing greater movement and flexibility with less stress on the organs and skeletal structure. Structural Integration changes the body’s compensations because it organizes the imbalances in the tissue. The systematic approach to relating gravity through the myofascial layers aligns the body and improves posture. The body lengthens allowing muscles the space to work efficiently and joints the freedom to function.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

 

• Taller and slimmer appearance
• Alleviation of chronic pain and discomfort
• Greater flexibility
• Lightness and fluidity
• Better balance
• Increased breathing capacity
• Increased energy
• Heightened athletic performance
• Greater self-confidence

 

ARE THERE PSYCHOLOGICAL BENEFITS?

 

While Structural Integration is primarily concerned with physical changes in the body, it affects the whole person. We are made up of emotions, attitudes, belief systems and behavior patterns as well as the physical being. All are related. Align the physical structure and it will open up the individual’s potential.

 

Clients often report positive changes, stating less stress, greater self-confidence and improved ability to handle life’s changes. Such changes have been reported in all age groups.

 

DOES IT LAST?

 

YES !! Photographs taken of clients years after the Basic Ten Series show that changes were still present and structure often improved. Keep in mind however, as life changes, bodies change in response. All injuries, accidents, lengthy illnesses and emotional stress may necessitate additional work.
