SI BODYWORK

STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION (SI) is a focus of fascia, connective tissue bodywork, rather than muscles (as in massage therapy). SI is a somatic practice utilizing fascial manipulation and mindfulness. Designed to work within the framework of your body, the individual sessions restore postural balance and functional ease by aligning the body in gravity. By aligning the body in gravity, the resources used for the body’s energy becomes increasingly efficient.

Each session is tailored to the physical integrity of the client which sculpts muscles and bodies to their shape with support. There will be a wide variation of benefits, including aligned and balanced movements with ease, fluidity, efficiency and grace. Feelings of stress decrease, while relaxation increases. The experience promotes the individual potential in positive change, lowering anxiety, improving sleep, increasing confidence, flexibility and mind-body awareness.

CONTRAINDICATION Structural Integration is contraindicated for those with infections, fevers, acute inflammation. Some forms of rheumatoid arthritis, severe osteoporosis or osteomyelitis.

ABOUT

MOVEMENT INTEGRATION is educational in nature, and takes place both on and off the table. The way we move is the functionality in the physicality of the body. Awareness in movement is essential to the longevity of SI Bodywork, resulting in the union of these two powerful modalities. The SI process is learned and self-organizing. The self-adjusting alignment system comes through awareness of movement, while increasing ease and fluidity, restoring the body’s mechanisms in connection to the body.

 

MINDFULNESS DIALOGUE is a self-awareness dialogue involving the release of old emotions, beliefs, body image issues and energy patterns. The SI process uses this modality, as an evolving body, toward personal evolution. This type of personal work enhances SI bodywork and promotes the inquiry of self-awareness dialogue for mindfulness. This modality can be personally revolutionary, which works with the client to help discover, transition and release negative barriers, replenishing positive thoughts for integrative wellness.

Why Structural Integration?

The study of SI Bodywork and combined methods of movement and mindfulness have become a mainstay in modern wellness routines. A focus on lengthening and strengthening the body with mindfulness, trains your body to hold itself in proper form- and stay there. While an influx of tech-related misalignment issues arise, clients have developed cervical kyphosis, and many other structural issues from constantly looking on their phones. Our shoulders become imbalanced. Our Heads are heavy and shift - and this shift forward affects the the alignment of our entire body.

Although the modern tech-related communications, such as smart phones and emails, are not going anywhere soon, SI Bodywork combined with movement integration and mindfulness should be a practice of our regular self care- as much as fitness, eating clean, and a beauty regime.

Superficially, we all look younger, thinner, more fluid and graceful, and more beautiful with good posture. Most remarkably, though posture affects digestion, immunity and metabolism.
