Structural Integration (SI) is not massage. It is a process that lets your body reorganize how it is organized. SI balances and aligns your body with gravity.Rolfing
SI literally asks the physical body to change how it is balanced, organized, aligned, and integrated so that it can feel better, move better, be freed of chronic aches and pains, and recover more fully from old accidents and injuries. Bodies that are balanced and aligned look thinner, are more flexible, move more fluidly with less effort, have fewer aches and pains, and feel more grounded and centered. Even further, when bodies are better organized with gravity, the mind is calmer and emotions feel more balanced.Rolfing
The SI practitioners view of the human body and human being is quite different from the commonly held views in western medicine, science, education, massage, and fitness. SI practitioners look upon symptoms as elements in a whole and dynamic system.
While the commonly held view is to fix symptoms, SI practitioners know that as a whole system changes and aligns with gravity, symptoms often dissolve.Rolfing
When SI practitioners use the word structure, they are not talking only about your physical body. Your body is not the all-of-you. You are also bigger than just your physical body. You already know the “comfort zone” around you that is the space beyond your skin. You know this because you are reminded of it each time another person gets too close and you feel anxious or step back.
All of who you are and all of what you perceive is what SI practitioners are talking about when they say “structure.” This is an important concept to realize when you see the words “Structural Integration.” You are not just a physical body, and your physical body is not an adversary which is refusing to help you resolve what bugs you. The all-of-who-you-are is a complex, dynamic, interdependent system, and SI works at this dynamic system level.
As clients become more familiar with this work, many say the SI points of view sound unusual at first but then make total sense. They experience it in their bodies, as their nagging discomforts, which had only moderately improved with other approaches - now find a way to resolve.
With Structural Integration, you will find your body making changes, and feeling better, in ways you didn’t think possible. Then everyday can help reinforce and sustain those changes.
Some people come to Structural Integration for physical reasons like better posture, improved athletic performance, to regain flexibility, or to release tension patterns. Some have chronic aches and pains that have not responded to other treatments. Others do Structural Integration as part of a program to optimize their well-being.
Still others do Structural Integration because they are seeking to unencumber themselves of emotional traumas that are embedded in their bodies. Emotional and mental stress can become locked in physical structure, and then determine how you get to move. Often as the physical structure releases from it's restriction pattern, the person recalls past memories and the emotions of these memories.
