the tissues give the strategy."

Structural Integration: Embrace Freedom & Vitality

Move Freely.  Age Gracefully.
Come Home to your Body.


Your posture holds a story of how you move through space, navigate gravity, and adapt to life's demands. Structural Integration combines manual manipulation with guided movement to release tissues that hold you in suboptimal postural patterns. Rather than being symptom-based, SI works through the entire fascial system to reduce tension, restore mobility, and make you feel at home in your body. 
 




 

The ATSI Series
Full Series: 12 sessions, lasting 90 minutes each.  
Introduction Series: 3 sessio
ns, lasting 90 minutes each. 
Each session builds upon the last and sets the foundation for the next, incorporating movement education and integration.

 

How Structural Integration Works:

During a series of sessions, a combination of soft tissue manipulation, movement education, and awareness-building techniques are used to systematically address and release restrictions within the fascia—the connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, and organs. Fascia holds our shape and is the organ of kinesthetic awareness. As we place stress on the body, the body responds by laying down collagen to support these demands. This often leads to dysfunction,--rounding the head forward to look at a computer or cell phone is a common culprit of back and neck tension, a flat foot arch can lead to knee pain, chewing predominantly on one side can cause jaw pain, rotated vertebrae can cause trigger points in the back, and numerous other adaptations that create disharmony and restrict movement. 

The treatment process involves a gentle and deliberate approach, allowing the body to adapt and integrate these positive changes progressively. Treatments are performed on a massage table and on a bench. A postural analysis is performed before each session to discern your unique structure and track your body's change throughout sessions.


What Can I Expect?
 

  • To work together. Structural Integration is a collaborative process that calls for active participation, movement, and dialogue. Each session begins with an assessment, followed by work on a table, chair, or standing to address your unique needs.
     

  • To illuminate possible causes of tension and difficulties that may typically be overlooked. Observing how each individual structure relates to one another paints a greater picture of your restrictions and compensations, your pillars of strength, and your wholeness.
     

  • To listen deeply. Touching into the different layers of the body brings us into greater contact with ourselves. This work treats the individual as a whole, including the emotions and habits that shape us.  
     

  • To restore freedom of movement and ease of breath. Fascial adhesions reduce range of motion and can contribute to chronic pain. By restoring glide between tissues, we improve biomechanics, allowing the body to move freely, breathe fully, and communicate efficiently.

Personal Note:
I am a passionate believer in the potency of this work. A severe hip dislocation at age 19 rotated my pelvis, leading to years of chronic discomfort. Since receiving a 12-Series I am happy to report that my hips are level, my back feels at ease, my breath is fuller, and I have a greater sense of presence and embodiment.
