of the jewels of my offerings, this modality addresses chronic issues – pains,
injuries, emotional holdings - and offers the opportunity for change on many
have heard of Rolfing, the genius creation of Ida Rolf, the woman who pioneered
this work of Structural Integration. I am a certified KMI Practitioner, a form
of Structural Integration (SI) passed on to me by Tom Myers, a student of
Ida’s, and a now famous SI teacher and pioneer in his own right.
work with the fascial system of the body, a body system that gives us our
shape, our posture, our general “bearing” in the world. Because of its physical makeup, fascia
takes on holding patterns. These
shapes may be uncomfortable, and may no longer serve us.
Using deep, slow techniques that speak
and dance with our fascial net, we create an environment for shift; for better
posture, less pain, more integrated balance throughout the body, as well as
expanded options for movement, agility and awareness.

are several ways to experience Structural Integration Bodywork.
The most in-depth experience is the
12-session series, which will systematically address each of your myofascial
meridiens – continuous fascial sheaths found throughout our body’s map.
Each session focuses on one line,
unraveling chronic holdings, creating balance within these complicated and
graceful webs of movement and posture:
1: The Superficial Front Line
2: The Superficial Back Line
3: The Lateral Line
4: The Spiral Line
5: The Deep Front Line, Part One
6: The Deep Front Line, Part Two
7: The Deep Back Line
8: The Arm Lines
9: The Crown – neck, head, face
10, 11, 12: Integrative Sessions
12-session series is for you if you’d like to experience a full tour of your
being. It is a wonderful piece of
work, and a gift to yourself that will offer you so much in the way of learning
about you and how your body works.

great taster for the work, this is a wonderful experience all on its own.
The focuses are more general:
1: Lower Body focus
2: Upper Body focus

experienced the full series.
A third option for a Structrual Integration experience:
You can also just come for an SI session here
and there, and we can work on whatever is “up” for you at the moment.
I highly recommend this work for people from all walks of life, who are experiencing chronic pain, ongoing questions about alignment, and/or feel "stuck", and ready to move on in life's journey.
