Structural Integration and Myo-fascial Release are Bodywork modalities that I have seen create radical transformation in my clients and this is one of the reasons why I have chosen to specialize and master their application.
Structural Integration is a systematic and scientific bodywork therapy that works in an intentional and detailed way. The focus is on the fascia – the substance that surrounds and supports the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones.
Structural Integration is an individual and unique process that has an effect on the body, mind and energetic system. This leads to an unwinding of the body’s destructive habitual patterns that inhibit pleasurable movement and the exploration of one’s physical potential. With an aligned body correct posture is effortless, breathing is fuller, organs have more space to function optimally and there is an increase in height and physical presence.
What happens during a Structural Integration bodywork session?
My approach is straight forward based on many years of experience and feedback.
I listen to the clients needs … For example, where is the most significant problem they need addressing right now. I assess and test using visual observation of movement patterns, hands on palpation, listening through subtle touch techniques and muscle testing.
I treat using all the information gathered and I am in constant communication with the bodies intelligence allowing me to be guided for efficient and effective results … The body truly knows best.
“The body knows best”
Structural Integration is otherwise known as Rolfing SI. It was first developed in the mid-1960s in America by a Russian biochemist named Ida Pauline Rolf.
Her work has continued to evolve with over 25 schools worldwide with each based on the Structural Integration system from the original 10 session recipe taught by Ida Rolf.
This 10 session recipe consisted of 10 x 75 or 90 min sessions that attend to one’s structure and human potential – which is undertaken using bodywork, soft tissue fascial & connective tissue techniques to lengthen, open, differentiate and balance the tissues.
While the bodywork is taking place, the deeper a person allows themselves to surrender in the process. It can also significantly help with psychological changes alongside improved mobility.
Myofascial Release is a highly specialised hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue to eliminate pain, restore motion and bring the body into a state of ease and alignment.
The technique is done without lotion or oil. The practitioner sinks into the client’s body with their hands, engages the fascia and then applies a slow movement to stretch the fascia. The work begins by opening up the layers just under the skin first and then working into the deeper enveloped fascial (including muscle) layers. As restrictions and tensions are released the client will notice that the area is not as sensitive or painful and has increased ease of movement. The ultimate sensation is the wave or ripple effect that can occur as the tissue lengthens and unwinds.
Myofascial Release has been revolutionary for my clients and myself. Opening up a new world of understanding the deeper complexities of the human body and what it truly needs to move into a state of ease. The combination of selected techniques and pressure allowing for results that last.
