IMPROVING INDIVIDUAL AREAS
This section looks at the treatment as a therapy, to correct specific
problems such as occur in arms, legs and shoulders, and how to greatly increase
flexibility and breathing capacity. It explains how tightness accumulates in
the body and how this treatment is exceptionally effective in detecting and
This section points out that tightness is not just a
local condition, but that, because our muscles and bones are all interconnected,
tightness anywhere in the body creates tightnesses in many other areas, too.
It then explains how this treatment corrects the causing tightnesses as well as
their painful effects.
SECTION II: IMPROVING THE
section describes the whole-body effects of Structural Integration. It takes
the treatment beyond the level of therapy for any specific problem to show us
how we can systematically transform the entire body structure so it functions at
a higher level:
less pain and stiffness, greater agility, more endurance, shorter recovery time
and a lower level of stress.
From a therapy viewpoint,
this section describes how many back, neck and shoulder problems are not just
local stiffness but are caused by a structural misalignment in the whole body.
And we learn how improving the whole body as a unit improves all the individual
parts much better than trying to do a group of local treatments only.
This section includes an
explanation about how the treatment improves body physiology and metabolism as
well as structure. And it describes the steps of the actual process along with
what improvements occur from its different phases.
SECTION III: GETTING
section begins by summarizing the key points and unique features of Structural
Integration. And it gives you background information about its origins and the
training and specialties of practitioners.
It will give you some information about me, too. It then provides you with
very helpful information about how to locate practitioners and suggests what to
ask them in order to find one who's good for you.
This section also includes
a long chapter that describes any discomforts or pains people might have during
the work and how you can do things for yourself before, during and after a
session to make it comfortable and get good results.
This chapter also explains how you can develop your abilities, to better sense
what is happening in your body, and then to articulate what you’re experiencing
in your expression to others. As part of this development, you can also improve
your interpersonal communication skills and self-confidence.
SECTION IV: HOW TO USE STRUCTURAL
WITH OTHER THERAPIES, AND FOR PERSONAL AND PERFORMANCE DEVELOPMENT
This Section describes the differences between
Structural Integration Bodywork and some other tension releasing treatments:
massage, trigger point therapy, acupressure and acupuncture. It explains some
of their unique features and benefits, and tells you how to use them in
combination with this treatment.
It specifically points out
that they don't lengthen fascia much, nor create structural alignment, but what
they do accomplish can help us get structurally aligned with the Bodywork
easier, and "tune us up" afterward. Conversely, after we've had the Bodywork,
these other treatments are more effective; they can do more of what they're
designed to do.
Section also describes how Bodywork is compatible with chiropractic, surgery,
psychotherapy and movement education. In fact, it points out how it makes them
more effective, too. And it even explains how Bodywork helps with
headaches, colds and other physical problems caused by tension. In many cases
of back pain, it can eliminate the need for surgery.
This Section concludes with two
chapters that go into detail about personal development and self-expression.
Bodywork, all by itself, significantly improves psychological well-being, it
increases our powers of verbal and movement expression, it improves intuition
and creativity, and it enables us to get more out of personal growth workshops
and business seminars. I've
briefly introduced some body oriented psychotherapy techniques, some movement
education methods and some awareness development processes. These can be done
both to increase the benefits we get from the Bodywork, and to take advantage of
the improvements that the Bodywork has made in our physical structures and
