Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing, is focused mainly on the body's fascia.
What's fascia? It's a connective tissue that makes up more than 80% of the human body and surrounds, supports and envelops every muscle, tendon, ligament, organ, nerve and cell. Fascia's a continuous three-dimensional web of support. It keeps the body together and facilitates in life's dynamic movements. Outside of a happy heart, ensuring your fascia is adaptable and unobstructed is critical to sustaining a healthy and injury free lifestyle.
What happens to fascia over time? The body's fascia can often become inflamed, stuck, or stressed, causing symptoms of discomfort, stiffness and pain throughout anywhere and everywhere within the body. Due to its ability to adapt, fascia can share the load of stress and cause symptoms in areas other than where the trauma originates. This is why Structural Integration takes a holistic approach to bodywork treatments.
How does structural integration heal fascia? The practice of Structural Integration helps heal fascia and return it to its peak state naturally, without invasive surgeries or toxic pain relief substances. Through a series of ten sessions, the body's fascia is treated and restored to its natural state. Specialized techniques are applied to different anatomical terrains using pressure and movement to accomplish permanent change to the client's overall physical structure. These therapeutic tools nurture the body's superficial and deep tissues. Through specific treatments, damaged or injured connective tissues release and return to a natural balanced condition. Ultimately, these benefits restore optimal movement and facilitate an injury-free active lifestyle.
Why 10 sessions? Every session builds on the last treatment and continues to unwind and reorganize the fascia layers of the clients' body. Over time, these initial ten sessions will restore and improve the client's natural alignment and posture within the gravitational field and give them a resurgence of movement and flexibility.
As these tissues respond to treatment and become more and more fluid, aligned, and balanced, the client will realize diminished pain, greater flexibility, higher energy, enhanced physical performance and more ease in movement. He or she will also feel and show signs of youthfulness, and ultimately benefit from complete recovery of the injury and a new understanding of how the body works.
