My Professional Training
"I've been reading your
books, very helpful. They're very clear and easy to understand
which is rare when people talk about stuff like that."
Personal Trainer & Professional Athlete
Wouldn't it be nice to have a physical body that, at any age, is
very flexible, moves around easily, stands up straight without
effort, relaxes deeply, feels light and alive, and is free of back,
neck and shoulder stiffness and pain? It has happen for thousands of people
because they had Structural Integration Bodywork.
faces also looked younger and less stressed.
If you're a person who wants to
know about the workings and detailed benefits of a treatment that
can improve athletic performance, remove pain and greatly help
seniors and children alike, this is the kind of book for you.
The treatment also helps psychologically as well as physically.
This book tells people in all walks of life how their bodies work in ways
that, probably. nobody ever told them, but in language that most folks can relate to.
There are two big chapters, of almost 30 pages, that explain how
to contact, interview and use practitioners in this field, or use
practitioners in other fields, to make our bodies work, feel and look much better than
most folks have thought they could.
Many people who already
know about improving their body's abilities, like professional athletes and
advanced yoga students, will find that here's a treatment that really does the
kinds of things they've been looking for. They can even use know how they read
in this book to make their own stretching and other self help
practices more effective.

Review - 11 Benefits for Yoga
Integration approach does more than just lengthen one area here and
one area there. It is an systematic approach to the whole
body, and it improves physiology as well as structure. The
body works better and does more for what we want it to do.
Getting even just a few hours improves many aspects of athletic
performance and expressiveness for both sports and the performing
arts. Getting the whole body done with the organized series of
"steps" does a lot more.
This book addresses specific concerns
of tightness, and tightness caused pain, like arms, legs, backs,
necks, shoulders, breathing, and so forth.
And also talks at length
ability of this unique method to actually transform the
entire body in how it looks, feels and operates.
For stress reduction, and
Structural Integration treatment gives
us a release of tension and tightness far
beyond massage and relaxation tapes. But once done, it also empowers massage to
do more and the tapes take one into a deeper state of relaxation. Plus, once
people have been treated, they were a lot less susceptible to stress.
creates a Bodymind, or body-mind, improvement. It has cleared out a
large amount of long term tension and accumulated emotional stress. In fact, people's
stressful behavior attitudes were diminished, too, because they were now in a
much less stressed condition. And at the same time it removed
the stress and tension, it made people more flexible, lighter, more
centered and stable, yet also more comfortably open, and more aware.
So this is a very informative book.
It's packed with useable information on almost every page.
Besides being very
helpful for lay people who want to be healthier and do more in their
lives, it contains a lot of specific information that can be used
by body therapists, like massage therapists, athletic trainers, yoga teachers and personal coaches, to
improve the way they help their own clients with their particular techniques.
This information has already helped chiropractors and sports
medicine doctors, too. And its Bodymind psychology and
professional expression chapters can be a help to psychotherapists
and counselors, too.
My specialties include
athletic performance of
professional, Olympic and recreational athletes, and dancers, and
improving the expressiveness, range of voice and speech,
presentation and "bearing," of actors,
singers, musicians & other performing artists.

"Fascia" Form - What It Does and
What It Can Become
- Chapter excerpts from the Book, describing first, the
basic problems with "bunch-up."
And then, 1.) specifically
how that negatively affects the face and head, including how it detracts
from the presentation of entertainers and newscasters.
Then it points out that we
can improve the body's shape, and function,
2.) by re-lengthening "interconnected" groups of muscles,
correcting misalignment, and
4.) by restoring the body's innate high level
function as a "tensegrity" structure, rather than staying in pain and
tightness as a "compression" structure.
We can even use
5.) "structural body reading" to
see where the body is tight and prevent injuries before they happen.

I've had almost constant pain
in my arms and right leg (diagnosed as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy with Reynauds). And
I've felt negative, humdrum, unhealthy and "doomed."
After just 2-1/4 hours of Lou's Bodywork I felt like a
new person: relaxed, clear and free of pain...more than I'd been in a long
time! The tension I had in my face is also
gone, my color is better and I look younger.
"I feel good!"
Ms SB, Businesswoman,
I'd look forward to the
total relaxation after each session.
I slept incredibly. It would free my mind of all STRESS. When Lou worked on my
head, right away deep relaxation would flow through my entire body.
The overall effects of the
sessions carried into my work and home life. I always used to push myself,
even if I was already straining. Now, if I need time out during the day, I can
let go and take it.
I can also now focus on what is most important and things don't
"work me up" so much.
VP Finance and part Owner, Computer Systems
Firm, age 37
Lou's Bodywork increases my health and vitality, and makes me feel
calmer. It clears up conditions; when I'm starting to get ill, it
puts me back on center with my health.
Along with this,
when I feel I'm "stuck" in my career or personal
life, I notice I'm also "stuck" in my body.
The treatments help me feel better and move
forward by breaking up this stuck energy and tightness.
It also helps me
psychologically. It helps me through emotions.
Ms SL, Businesswoman, age 43
The treatment fixed tightness and
limited motion from fractured neck vertebrae C6 & C7, from a skiing accident. It got rid of the
stiffness and nerve twinges, my head and neck are now more
aligned with my torso, and my neck feels and moves better.
Mr. TF, Corporate Chief Administrator, regular
I can now bend over fully, with knees bent,
whereas before I couldnít do it at all; people had to pick things up for
I definitely walk more upright and
readily, including walking up stairs without holding on.
That was something that was gradually getting worse and worse
all the time.
Mrs. CS, Grandmother, Age 68
It's freed up my lungs and increased my
breathing capacity. My performance has increased, including the fact that I
pass people at the end of the marathon, going up hill.
The most incredible result of
all has been my very fast and easy recovery. I have no problem completely
recovering from a 26 mile marathon run, in 3-4 hours, to where I would enjoy running again if
I wanted to.

certainly improved my meditation. I now have much more flexibility in
my legs and torso, so I can sit half-lotus, and for longer periods with
My chest isn't pulled down either.
When I sat in the past, I couldn't breathe deeply, but now the
looseness in my whole chest and abdomen lets me breathe deep and long.
And I have a much wider range of motion in my whole body. It's all
