Your posture affects you more than you may realize. Poor posture forces some of your muscles to work incredibly hard all day long, while other muscles get weaker. This creates imbalances in the body, which leads to pain and dysfunction, ultimately leaving you in a “slump.” Through a course of Structural Integration, you can attain a pain-free lifestyle and walk tall once again.
systematically releases patterns of stress and impaired function throughout the entire body. It is designed to restore postural balance by aligning and integrating the body back to a neutral position.
Effects of Gravity
This process of re-educating the body through movement and touch helps facilitate a positive relationship between the body and gravity. Maintaining a neutral position in the body is crucial because the body is much broader at the top than at the base, so the body is greatly affected by gravity when imbalances occur. In order for the body to remain upright, the entire body has to compensate and some muscles are forced to shorten. When a chronically shortened muscle loses its ability to relax, it remains in a state of chronic tension.
How Structural Integration Works
Structural Integration changes the body’s compensation patterns resulting from shortened muscles and imbalances in the body. By lengthening and opening the patterns in the fascia surrounding the muscles, the thick and shortened tissue becomes soft and more pliable, which allows your muscles the space to work and gives joints the freedom to function. Through this ten session series of systematically organizing your fascia, your body will become aligned and neutral, which will improve your posture. Your body will once again be able to move freely and you will enjoy increased flexibility and range of motion
