Structural Integration – an Awareness-oriented structural therapy – is a systematic hands on body work technique where 10 consecutive and systematic sessions take place. The material of the body we are treating is called fasica, or connective tissue. The Rolf Method of Structural Integration (SI) is a systematic, educational hands on body work modality focusing on the realignment of your body in the gravitational field. In essence, we are reorienting the imbalances in your structure, while releasing chronic holding patterns that have been neglected over time.
Classically this work is done over a series of sessions called “The 10 Series”, in which different areas of the body are addressed each session. Much like peeling an orange or an onion, your connective tissue relates the same way thru your body – one layer after another we call ‘Sleeve to Core’. Often when we have an area of disease say, your right shoulder, the problem might actually be in your left hip then traveling down into your foot. Your connective tissue is the story board where all cellular memory is held – every trauma be it physical, mental, or emotional. SI helps to find resolve with these issues, while bringing clients to a greater sense of ease overall.

Simply put, this work is about loosing the ‘grip’ and resolving chronic aches and pains that exist in the body. Structural Integration can feel like a deep tissue massage, yet it is not. Consider the years of strain collectively bringing you to where you currently are – we’ll look to resolve most of that strain and stress during the sessions and thru movement cues while correcting inappropriate patterns and rebalance the body and nervous system.
Structural Integration is the belief that the fascia is not a series of single units enveloping muscle, rather an interconnected system that extends from the top of the head to the toes; according to this notion, disease occurs when the fascial system becomes indurated and constricted through the vicissitudes of emotional stress, habitual poor posture, repetitive use syndrome, trauma and others. Structural Integration isalso effective for allergies, arthritis, flat feet, gastrointestinal complaints, low back pain, sciatica, scoliosis, tennis elbow, TMJ syndrome and other conditions.
What to expect during a session:
After determining SI is a good fir for you thru an assessment, generally we will meet weekly for up to a 90 minute session including RolfYoga movement. Prepare to bring or wear undergarments such as what is shown in the images on this page, men in shorts or briefs. The first session is usually longer than the follow up visits of 60 minutes. Please allow for time after your session to integrate either by walking, or sitting relaxed for 30 minutes or so. This work is deeply transformative, as L’ prides herself by offering specifically designed movement ‘prescriptions’ (RolfYoga) to bridge the work from the table to floor to life.
