If you have had the privilege of being massaged by one of the therapists at Structura Body Therapies located in South Ogden Utah you know what I mean. Jason and Nancy Prince practice a form of massage therapy called Structural Integration. It can be the best thing any athlete is looking for and can be the link to excelling in sports where muscle stiffness and tightness have held you back.
Many are familiar with “The Dr. Oz Show,” he says he sees the growing popularity of Structural Integration as “a general perception by the public that taking medications for discomfort is not giving you the panacea benefits that you would desire.”
In that regard, he said he viewed the treatment as an extension of practices like yoga, which also offers relief without drugs. “Yoga is in many ways analogous to Structural Integration because it takes tendons and it stretches them into a position of discomfort,” Dr. Oz said. “They’re just doing it for you without your doing it yourself.”
Structural Integration practitioners say they have also noticed a shift that may explain why younger clients are seeking out their services. It’s not just to treat injuries, but also stress. “Health is one area where we can find a sense of control,” said Mr. Prince, who has been practicing for about 13 years.
Not to be compared to the frilly massages taking place in spas, Structural Integration helps reduce the problems causing pain. As the title of this blog implies it can be painful at times, but always worth it.
