Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that focuses on the effects of gravity on the body by working with layers of connective tissue called fascia. Fascia surrounds the muscles, bones, and organs. The continuous tug of gravity, the stress of daily activities, and past injuries can pull the body out of alignment and away from one's center of orientation. Over time, the fascia gradually shortens, tightens, and adjusts to accommodate the misalignment. This creates inefficiency and imbalance in the body that results in stiffness, discomfort, and loss of energy.
