Structural Integration

Structural Integration is a scientifically validated body therapy.  Unlike massage therapy, Structural Integration focuses not on the muscles, but on their protective layer called fascia, or connective tissue. Muscles are contracting tissues that give the body and organs physical movement. The fascia surrounds the muscles, bones and organs in the body. Fascia gives muscles their shape and the body its structure.

Structural Integration (SI) aligns and balances the body by lengthening and repositioning the fascia. As fascia is lengthened it allows the muscles to move more efficiently. The practitioner will apply pressure to the body, working the entire fascial system in a systematic way. When restricted fascia is released and lengthened, the body can return to its structurally optimal position.

The continuing pull of gravity and the stress of daily activities and physical injuries can pull the body out of alignment. As this happens, the fascia gradually shortens, tightens and adjusts to accommodate the misalignment as a new “normal”. When the body is out of alignment it creates inefficiency and imbalance resulting in stiffness, discomfort and loss of energy.

What can SI do for you?

When the body is aligned and balanced it moves with greater ease. It requires less energy to function. Good posture is effortless and breathing is easier. The body becomes more flexible, more coordinated and athletic performance improves.  As a side effect from using SI, most clients also report they have significantly less, or even none of the muscle pain they were experiencing before their first session.
