This modality addresses chronic issues – pains, injuries, emotional holdings - and offers the opportunity for change on many levels.
We 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.
This work is offered as either a series of 12 sessions, three sessions, or as a single session.
Each session begins with a postural analysis, where we will visually see what your posture and structure can tell us. We then move to the table, or sitting or even standing or in movement, to explore the work..
Very little lotion is used, for a deep, high “drag” experience.
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.
Ways of Working
There 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:
Session 1: The Superficial Front Line
Session 2: The Superficial Back Line
Session 3: The Lateral Line
Session 4: The Spiral Line
Session 5: The Deep Front Line, Part One
Session 6: The Deep Front Line, Part Two
Session 7: The Deep Back Line
Session 8: The Arm Lines
Session 9: The Crown – neck, head, face
Sessions 10, 11, 12: Integrative Sessions
This 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.
Another way to work is a 3-session series.
A great taster for the work, this is a wonderful experience all on its own.
The focuses are more general:
Session 1: Lower Body focus
Session 2: Upper Body focus
Session 3: Integrative focus
This is great if you’d like a taste of the work or a tune up if you have already experienced the full series.
A third option for a Structural 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.
