Prior to starting the 1st session, we will spend some time discussing how your body is feeling currently, how it has felt in the past as well as the physical goals you would like to obtain from Structural Integration. We will discuss previous illness, current ailments, current and past treatments and the results of those treatments. We will also discuss major stress contributors as well as your overall sense of well-being and comfort in your own body.
A typical Structural Integration session begins with a short conversation about any changes that have occurred since the last treatment. We discuss the area of the body that will be focused on and I will answer any questions you have regarding the structural, functional and emotional goals for the session. All sessions include a visual assessment, bodywork, body awareness, movement education and mind-body dialogue. CAM’s (Client Assisted Movements) are a vital part of the session. You will need to perform some movements during the session that will allow the work to be more effective. Depending on the session, you will be asked to stand up multiple times so I can make a visual assessment of changes. Comfortable attire is necessary as occasionally I will ask you to walk in the hallway to visually assess your movement. You will also bring awareness to how the changes feel in your body.
