Structural Integration (SI) is a method of whole-body balancing. Over a series of sessions, targeting specific lines and layers of myofascia, SI aims to create space & freedom & adaptibilty in your body...encouraging structures (bones, nerves, muscle, connective tissue, etc.) to find a more centered place to operate from. When the body can use less effort to exist in gravity, there is more vital energy to use towards other systems. We call this spacial medicine!
I am trained in the ATSI (Anatomy Trains) style of Structural Integration. This framework uses 12 sessions to achieve the fullest intention of the work. Please review the home-page for more info on setting up a structural bodywork project.
Sessions should be spaced no further than 3 weeks apart, but ideally 10 days is best (closer to 1-2 weeks depending on scheduling).
SI is a project. When we complete the an SI project, a person does not receive the FULL project again for at least another 6-12 months. The structure (fascia) needs time to re-organize to this new place in gravity that we are asking it to live in. This is a different framework than other styles of bodywork, like massage therapy.
Structural Integration, just like other forms of bodywork, can be sensation-full. These sensations can be physical or emotional. My intention is to observe the body's patterns, put energy into the body in a systematic way, and hold space for the body as the body shifts.
Please wear, or bring with you, garments that you feel comfortable wearing during the session to allow maximal skin expsure while keeping your intamte areas covered. Most people wear full coverage underwear, athletic shorts and bra (with an open back), bathing suit, shorts/tank top you can roll up when needed.

Structural bodywork combines myofascial release, active movement, breath-work and embodiment practices to address a presenting discomfort. This is structural integration inspired work without the series format.
I will be using your posture as a guide for the structure of our session.
I practice a bodywork modality called Cupping (also knowns as cup therapy, cupping therapy, myofascial decompression).Cupping stems from a Chinese Medicine origin, and is now practiced widely with-in the manual therapy community.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
Increases circulation and blood flow to an area
Myofascial Release: the negative pressure created by the suction of tissue into the cups generates heat, which stimulates the mobility of fascia
Eliminates trigger points and adhesions within the myofascia
Soft Tissue pain relief
Relaxation by down-regulating the nervous system
Increases Range Of Motion of a joint(s) by loosing the myofascia around the articulation
Disperse stagnant energy
Self Care Tips
If the cupped area feels hot or itchy, use cooling care on the area. This could include some cryotherapy or lineament of choice (I recommend Tiger Balm, Real Time Pain Relief, or some DILUTED anti-inflammatory and analgesic essential oils like wintergreen, peppermint, or lavender). These sensations are NORMAL. They are a byproduct of myofascial changes.
Cup marks will most likely darken/intensify for up to 72 hours after the session
It is common to feel fatigued after a cup therapy session...listen to your body and rest if needed
