Structural Integration focuses on fascia, the protective layer surrounding our muscles, bones and organs. Fascia gives muscles their shape and the body its structure.  Over time, however, the continuing pull of gravity, the stress of daily activities, and physical injuries can pull the body out of alignment. The fascia shortens, tightens and adjusts to accommodate the misalignment. This condition creates inefficiency and imbalance resulting in stiffness, discomfort and loss of energy.

Structural Integration practitioners align and balance the body by applying pressure to lengthen and reposition the fascia. As fascia is released and lengthened it allows the muscles to move more efficiently. Aligned, balanced, and in an optimal position, the body moves with greater ease requiring less energy. Good posture is effortless; breathing is easier. The body becomes more flexible, more coordinated and performance improves.
