Benefits of Structural Integration

Structural Integration is a scientifically validated system of body restructuring that can make dramatic changes in a person’s structure.

Structure and function are co dependent.  If you have a poor structure, you will have poor function and  this means poor performance.

People seek Structural integration as a way to ease chronic  pain, stress and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. For athletes, movement and flexibility are critical to optimum training.  Athletes, musicians, performers, children, and people from all walks of life will benefit from Structural Integration. It is perfect for anyone wishing to improve the way in which their body functions and feels.

Benefits reported by Structural Integration clients include:

  • Improved posture and greater range of motion and flexibility.
  • Freedom from sciatica, chronic back and neck pain.
  • Decreased tension and stress and relief from repetitive strain injuries.
  • Improved balance, coordination and athletic performance
  • Increased energy and sense of well-being.

What is the basic ten series?

The ten sessions is broken down into 3 categories. The superficial session, the core sessions and the integrating sessions.

Sessions 1 to 3 focus on releasing the superficial layers of the connective tissue that can be described as the muscles close to the surface of the body also being called the sleeve muscles.

Sessions 4 to 7 are considered the core sessions. When I say this I mean the deep musculature and connective tissue of the body. Also called the intrinsic muscles, these help us with fine motor movement and produce graceful and fluid movement.

Sessions 8 to 10 are designed to integrate the core and the sleeve. The practitioner balances and aligns the patterns of the body and looks at re-ordering rotational patterns in the structure.

Dr. Blumberg GP, Auckland N.Z

“Having lived with back chronic pain for a long time I had tried lots of therapies. Then I found Chris. Only after a few sessions of Structural Integration, I had more flexibility and range of motion and I could move easier. I now live without chronic back pain after completing the 10 series. I feel like I have been given a new lease on life !”
