I am certified in Structural Integration through a year long training program for advanced LMTs. This more modernized training emphasizes client movement for better assessment, effective releases, safety, and neural/proprioceptive integration of the work, and is still based on the Rolf ten series. Due to my additional training in orthopedic bodywork, I am able to apply this work both to 10 series work and to specific conditions and injuries for a more limited series of treatments tailored to your concerns. I offer a package deal on the 10 series.
Structural Integration (a generic term for offshoots of the Rolf method) is the best way I know to regain youthful freedom of movement lost over time due to stresses on the body. It improves posture, sometimes dramatically, and eases pain due to imbalance, efficiently and effectively. It's also a great way to reconnect with your body. Receiving Structural Integration is sometimes painful but in that oh so good, I know it's working kind of way. I will systematically evaluate your movement and posture and help release many areas that other practitioners many never have touched but very much need to be released.
SI is performed in a series of ten sessions. The brilliance in the recipe of the 10 series is that we check and release through the whole body. Everything is connected and so the issues you are having may be caused by or affecting other areas of the body. Until most of these hidden adhesions are released, you may never feel complete relief. While many clients come in to address pain or injury, a wonderful effect of the work is you may feel it's easier to be in your body, exercise more efficiently, breathe better, have better posture, be less prone to injuries, and be more flexible. Sometimes there are emotional releases as well.
It's important that you are committed to feeling better and willing to actively participate in the sessions before you embark on a series. While we can touch on a specific issue in every session, the effect is greater when the whole body is addressed. Please wear or bring comfortable cotton undergarments or light work out clothes - shorts and bras/sports bras/tanktops are ideal.
