Structural Integration is a series of bodywork sessions in which the main goal is to establish ease in the body. This is achieved by balancing the relationship of compression and tension in the body by working on layers of the connective tissue called fascia.
Due to overuse or misuse, we develop restrictions along these lines that can cause postural distortions and contribute to patterns of pain. Each session is aimed at working with one continous 'train' or line of fascia, to reorganize it along its line of force so that it is able to efficiently slide and glide with ease. This process happens over a series of sessions- the KMI (one school of structural integration) process has 12 separate and progressive sessions.
