Summary of Structural Integration from a Fascia Perspective

"Structural integration is grounded in two premises:

First that physical and personal well-being requires appropriate adaption to the field of gravity.

Second, that the primary organ of body structure is fascia.

SI works because fascia is:

  1. Physically and functionally continuous.

  2. Responsive to gravity.

  3. Able to transmit locally registered information throughout the body.

  4. Malleable due to its visco-elasticity.

By exploiting these key characteristics of fascia as an organ of structure and communication, the traditional multi-session SI protocol delivers an orderly and well-supported arrangement of body segments in 3-D space along the imaginary plumb line and facilitates progressive levels of movement integration."
