What is Structural Integration and how does it compliment Chiropractic care?
Structural Integration (Rolf Method)
Structural Integration is a form of body work that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body. Structural Integration also releases the body from life long patterns of stress and tissue adhesions, tension and bracing. Structural Integration works to achieve balance of tensional strains of connective tissue muscle, ligament, tendon and creates space by using slow applied pressure to reposition the soft tissue allowing bones to fall back into their natural relationships, optimizing joint motility and thus allowing improvement in bone alignment. In most cases Structural Integration coupled with Chiropractic care can be highly effective. The work uses tissue manipulation techniques that re-educates the patterns in the soft tissue that holds the bone structure up right in gravity.
Participants will learn how Rolfing and Polestar Pilates are mutually interactive and beneficial in improving posture, alignment and balanced movement. They will also develop an understanding of how fascia and neurology contribute to movement, influence pain and energy levels, including fatigue or vitality. Whole Body Kinetics addresses postural and musculoskeletal imbalances that contribute to less-efficient movement patterns associated with discomfort or chronic pain through the application of Rolfing Structural Integration, Polestar Pilates principles and movement education. Their whole-body approach and scientific research are related to bio-tensegrity whole body organization to integrate all parts of the body. Rolfing Structural Integration helps integrate the body as a whole, reduce pain, improve spinal alignment and improve movement quality. These gains are enhanced and integrated with comprehensive Polestar Pilates strategies, evidence-based exercise and movement education that facilitate new muscle memory and proper muscle balance. Admission is free. Location: N. Clark St. For more information and to register, call or visit WholeBodyKinetics.
Fascia is a complex web of tissue that touches and envelopes almost every part of the body, supporting bones, surrounding muscles fibers and supporting our overall form. From bad posture, past injuries or repetitive movement, we can create distortions in the fascia that can lead to pain and restrictive movement. Through a series of sessions, you are led through a systematic analysis and reorganization to result in a body that is more resilient and more functionally ablue. Improve the former and your create ease and significant improvement in the latter. Each series is a process of unfolding chronic tension, habits and building awareness.
