Through the ten sessions of Structural Integration we focus on one specific area during each session, unwinding the body step by step. Nonalignment can be caused by muscle tension, imbalance in opposing muscles, injury, repetitive strain, etc. All of these factors play a part in pulling parts of your body out of alignment. Over time, those parts stay where they have been pulled which causes further stress to the body and can eventually lead to chronic issues.
The success rate of eliminating chronic conditions with Structural Integration is about 80 -90%. It is said that after you have been taken through the ten sessions your body is capable of holding this corrected posture for up to five years. While some maintenance will be required (mostly due to everyday stresses e.g. work and everyday posture), the length of time between visits will be extended, therefore costing you less in the long run.
