What is Structural Integration?

Anatomy Trains Structural Integration is for clients who truly want their MOTION ™ transformed and renewed!

 

The focus of Structural Integration is on a fascia rather than on the muscles (as in massage). The fascia is a protective layer of connective tissue that surrounds each muscle, individual muscle fiber, organs, bone, lymphatic vessels and blood vessels. Fascia gives muscles and bodies their shape and support. Fascia is designed to be elastic and move freely with muscles and bones. Injury, stress, work-related repetitive movements and the effects of aging can cause the fascia to lose its elasticity and adaptability becoming shorter, tighter and more dense. Tightened fascia pulls our muscles and skeleton out of proper alignment and posture which can cause pain, discomfort, and fatigue.

In general, a body that is aligned and balanced in gravity moves with more ease. fluidity. efficiency and grace. Movement is a pleasure, breathing is easier and good posture is more effortless.

In addition, more efficient use of your muscles allows the body to conserve energy. and creates more refined and economical patterns of movement. This can result in increased levels of energy and alertness. Feelings of stress can also decrease while your level of relaxation can increase.

Finally, the Structural Integration series provides increased body awareness and presence allowing for a feeling of finally being-at-home . . . in your body
