Structural Integration

Structural Integration aligns & balances the body by lengthening & repositioning the fascia. When restricted fascia is released, the muscles move more fluidly & efficiently, allowing the body to return to its aligned & balanced state.

WHAT IS STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION? 

Developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the 1940s and fine-tuned by her at Esalen Institute in California and later in Boulder, Colorado, Structural Integration combines hands-on manipulation of the body with movement re-education. Whereas other forms of bodywork like massage focus on the manipulation of muscle tissue, Structural Integration focuses on the manipulation of the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds the muscles.

WHAT IS FASCIA?

Fascia is the stretchy membranous webbing that surrounds and connects muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, and bones. Fascia is so integral to our body’s structure that it influences the way we breathe, stretch, walk, jump, and move.

Fascia can become hardened and thickened by injury, accident, age or postural habits. The goal of structural integration is to release the fascia enough for muscles to relax and stretch, and for joints to reorganize themselves. Using gentle pressure at key points on the fascial layer, therapists manipulate the superficial fascia with their fingers, palms, and forearms to bring the release–and relief–the body has been waiting for.

WHAT CAN STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION HELP TREAT? 

Low back pain, sports injuries, chronic headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, tight neck and shoulders, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, TMJ syndrome, pain associated with nervous system disorders and more!
