And I always tell you just what is going on in your structure & how we will fix it.

Also, for beauty & stress removal, 
you can look younger in an hour,
lines & stress scrunching are reduced, face looks more open & moves freer.
eye areas are more opened & brow furrows are reduced, 
& people get looser, too, in neck & back as well.
People have often actually looked and felt happier.
Circulation & perhaps facial color is improved, long term.
even tenseness of speech & feeling is improved.

I can accomplish this even in your chair at work or home,
with your clothes on & no massage oil in your hair or on your clothes.
It's an actual FASCIA RE-LENGTHENING Bodywork Face Lift
with head and Back-Neck Loosening, too.
Even your arms can be freed up & your curving over from working on a computer improved.
Breathing can be made deeper & easier.
it's a Good Stress Remover - People look and feel less stressed
even from months of hard work &/or tension.

& In other Hours, Perhaps especially important to women, including actresses,
Legs, including knees, can be made to look more beautiful - really.  And it lasts.
The parts even all look (& feel) more connected, and the skin & muscles have better circulation.
Also available through loose clothes like a sweat-suit or wearing shorts.

The reason this creates such immediate rapid (in the first 5 minutes & 1 hour),
and long term improvements (lasts for weeks, months & years)
is because it re-lengthens, massively, the actual accumulated shortness that
 developed over a long time, like years and decades, or even recently in
 training, in the body's physical form elements.  
It is special hands-on strokes & it's more complete in understanding
 the way the body structure is put together,

A lot of massages help circulation by moving the fluids of blood & lymph
through the muscles and blood-lymph vessels,
& they turn off muscle fibers & nerves from recent activities.
But they do not correct the overall shape  (to fix backs, shoulders, necks, legs, hamstrings, etc).
That is why the looseness and relief from massage only lasts for a few hours or days
even though the tissue healing & circulation benefits of the massage are very helpful.
The tight interconnected muscles and the misaligned shape go back to the tightness.
And usually, the deeper muscle tissue has never been spread apart from its long term tightness.

Pain, Tightness, Athletics

           My Structural Integration Bodywork has
successfully and repeatedly fixed back pain, severe back tightness & other structural pain due to tightness as well.  It often improves and even cures sciatica. 
           It's
significantly re-lengthened chronic hamstring tightness.& other leg and foot shortness.  From this, it's fixed a lot of knee pain, achilles tendon soreness and hip or pelvic misalignment.  In general, it helps pain and tightness in legs, pelvis. neck, shoulders, chests, sides, bellies, arms and hands.
           People find their hands and fingers move more freely, and their arms and shoulders are lighter and looser.  They also breathe deeper.
           I have worked on seniors to age 91.  They gained better mobility and agility.  People say they "feel better" just moving around, even "younger."  They can walk faster and reach further, and they can get up and down easier.
           My youngest client was age 5. 
He, and his teenage sister became better in sports and were more helpful and outgoing.

           It's well known that Structural Integration increases Athletic Performance.
  And a lot of athletes, including golfers, have back pain.  A number of elite athletes and college coaches, including those with chronic lower back pain, have been very pleased with the results they received from my work.
           Tightness from working out, or from lack of movement (as with stroke, MS, & other conditions) has regularly been loosened. 
Working out on weight machines is a very common cause of tightness leading to lower back pain.
           Scar tissue can be broken up.  Injuries like pulled muscles can be prevented because the tissue is much longer again.  And injuries that occurred in tight muscular areas can be helped to heal faster because the pulls that caused the injuries are removed
This bodywork also helps healing because it increases circulation very deeply, and it removes a lot of old, hard waste products.
           Tight arms and shoulders from using crutches can also be loosened up.
           The Structural Integration treatment works very well in conjunction with strength building and physical therapy programs.
 People say it keeps them flexible as well as strong. 
            

           
 If you have pain, or want to improve your athletic performance and expressiveness in sports or the performing arts, please review some of the articles below.  They'll help. Then feel free to e-mail or call me.  Besides Bodywork or stretching sessions from me, I have a booklet that explains how to find, interview and work with a practitioner.
           
 Note that Structural Integration, originally developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, is the generic system that is employed in the Rolfing, Hellerwork and part of the Postural Integration Bodywork systems.
             People who've already had these wonderful programs, and even deep tissue massage, myofascial release or Lomi bodywork, have found they enjoy my advanced or refresher treatments, and they got a lot out of each one.

           
  In this regard, I specialize in going very deep, comfortably,   This is what's often necessary to correct a lot of back pain and deep, long term tightness.  And it makes athletic performance that much better.

             Ask about my Senior Centers & Retirement Home Stretching Classes
& Self-Help How-to Hands-on Classes.  My In-clinic group therapist training, by you.  In Los Angeles and nearby areas, or wherever I happen to be.
             I worked in 2
Senior Centers in Los Angeles and two retirement homes, two college training rooms, in Malibu and Long Beach, and a Beverly Hills Chiropractic Office. 
             Structural Integration Bodywork is a treatment of choice for helping seniors move around better, & for improving the ability of chiropractors
to get more vertebrae to go in, stay in, and create less pain and muscle tightness doing it.

             Most of my Structural Integration Bodywork has been in Los Angeles, California but I have also worked in Michigan and other states.  I am an expert at traveling to you and doing many hour per session, many sessions per week.  My wholistic structural system of nutritional foods as well as my hands-on technique and my incorporated structural stretching allow me to do this and create very good results even for very large and/or tight folks, even in pain. 

              Even in Los Angeles, to start, years ago, I would do 2-hour sessions to enable people to get more done, sooner and get ahead of the force of gravity and their long term tightness, much sooner.

Stress, Tension, Emotional Release


        
  Structural Integration Bodywork is very effective for stress removal and helps tight heads. Loosening the many bones and muscles of the head increases comfort and relaxation in the entire body.  The many pieces of the head should move, as we breathe and when we express ourselves.  But they get very tight, especially during stress.  That adversely affects the back and neck, the nervous system, the ability to breathe deeply, all the internal organs, our emotional capacity, and our abilities to think clearly and process large amounts of information.
           In my own treatments for stress, I first do a lot on the head, neck, shoulders and back which makes a big improvement right away.  This also removes a lot of head trauma. 
I
n the standard 10-step Structural Integration recipe, the head would not get done much, if at all, until the 7th session.

           One of my areas of expertise is, indeed, Stress Removal & simultaneously I make people actually more Stress Immune.  And at the same time, it also increases people's power and range of expression and their depth of feeling, themselves, and other people at the same time.   In Los Angeles & other cities this is a very helpful improvement for everybody.  And it's amazing to my clients how much tightness, stress & heaviness, as well as past emotional negativity, we remove in just 2 to 4 hours of initial treatment.
         
The Bodywork sequence itself will do this somewhat, but I also add advanced hands-on work right away, and modify the sequence of the recipe to enhance the person for stress removal, since I have been trained in that field as well.  And I add methods to increase the relaxation and tension removal right down to inside the bones, even if the accumulation went on for months before.  Further, I do hands-on energy increasing practices and recommend unique nutrition.  Both make the cells themselves stronger & increase the power of the different body-mind parts of us.
           Finally, I provide you with the structural stretching & hands-on videos to keep yourself loose and more strongly and balanced energy wise throughout the day, at work, even as an attorney in the courtroom, or a doctor in the emergency room.  You even learn unique energy techniques that quickly remove tightness from you and blockages and negativities from people you encounter in your day.

           Here are some details, unique to the Structural Integration Bodywork Approach..

           Stress and back pain are related.  Having back pain, in itself, can make us feel stressed.
           But we're also more susceptible to the effects of stress when we're already tightened up from the misaligned shape of the body. 
This shape, with a big arch in the lower back, often causes back pain, especially lower back pain and/or sciatica.            
            We're not very "stress immune" because of this.  The entire back of the body, including the head, neck and legs, is being held tight.
 So the body is already in a stressed and tense condition.  And added tightness due to the next stress just tightens it up more.
             Just a little bit more tightness from the emotional reaction can bring on the back pain or make it worse.  Also, emotional tension in the gut tightens the muscles connected to the vertebrae in the lower back.  Some people may get immediate lower back pain or sciatica whenever this happens.
             This structural misalignment also creates a stressful behavior, one in which we "have to keep going."  We're pulled down in front and we're constantly arching the lower back to pull ourselves up.  The body posture says, "I have to keep straining, even just in everyday life."
           
After this shape has been corrected and the body was more balanced and centered, a number of people have been able to "let down" from intense work and do more things for themselves.

             Structural Integration Bodywork is purposely designed to correct this misalignment and remove the chronic tension.

           Working the whole body, months and years of accumulated stress are removed
at the same time that tightness all over the body is re-lengthened and the shape is more straightened out.  Built-up emotional charge in the tissues, gets erased, too.          
           Faces look more open, less strained or "scrunched up," and even younger.  Eyes get more relaxed.  Neck tension is reduced.
           The body is literally "reformed" and "cleaned up," and its tissue quality and metabolism is healthier.  So it works a lot better physically & is more stress resistant as well.
 People find the old stress they had is gone, they don't tighten up in stressful situations as much as they used to, and they let go of their tensing up faster.
            This
overall openness and "unblocking" has helped many people express themselves more openly and more confidently.  And their minds were calmer and clearer.  A lot of their old fears due to tension and embedded negative emotions, were now gone.
            
             My own special multi-faceted program, Postural Integration Plus increases these stress release benefits from the bodywork alone, and adds more personal development.  It's especially helpful for trauma release, too, from very old as well as recent experiences. 
The energies we absorbed during the past trauma still stay inside the body and therefore keep making our reactions to current stress more than they should be.
           
 When we remove the old emotional energies created inside us during past stressful experiences, we no longer react in such a stressful way to our current stressful experiences.  Netherton and  Reichian Therapy techniques add a lot to the releasing we can do with the Bodywork itself.  They can actually get out the deeper energies in the organs and remove the negative "belief systems" that say we should get so tensed up in those kinds of situations.

            
People who have already gotten stress and trauma release from deep tissue massage, myofascial release (r), Lomi (r) bodywork or the Structural Integration programs of Rolfing (r), Hellerwork(r), and Postural Integration (r), find they can use these methods to build on what they've already done.
              It has also immediately improved what people have worked on in their psychotherapy and spiritual counseling.  As a general rule, whatever we've already worked on mentally and emotionally, gets better when we do the physical and energetic parts, too.
              Even just Structural Integration itself has helped many people in their ongoing psychotherapy and counseling.

Improving Professional & Artistic Performance

            In the Structural Integration Bodywork method, we aren't directly fixing pains in the way medical doctors do.  We are simply, but very sophisticatedly, re-lengthening and re-organizing the body's fascial, soft connective tissue system. The method is a series of inter-connected hands-on sessions.
            
This putty-like tissue surrounds and goes through all our muscles.  It's what accumulates tightness and keeps us in a tight shape even when we mentally relax, get a massage or take a hot bath.
            By re-lengthening it, we are both removing the tightness and creating better overall structural alignment. The relationship of muscles and bones is actually put back toward where it's designed to be anatomically.  That even removes the tight muscular pulls from one part of the body to another.
            Problems disappear that were the result of the old restricted form.          
            In this new condition, people's psychological well being and mental performance has increased along with their physical improvements.  Awareness, centeredness, and both
mental and creative focus have all improved. 
           Performing artists, business executives and others, have been able to express their feelings and intentions more clearly and openly.  They were more confident and articulate.  And they said they had a greater "depth of feeling" inside themselves, but were calmer. 
Their minds also got clearer about what they saw in themselves, and they were clearer and less troubled by what they noticed in others.  They could take more effective action and they got kinder.
           Many people's shapes change.  They're straighter,  Many notice they're a little taller and shoulders may not be so rounded.  Body proportions get better so some people actually look thinner.  And a number of women's legs look nicer.
           People who have to "present" themselves
give a better "presentation" just because of this change in our shape and the better quality of our muscles and energies.  Of course, removing back pain and tightness, whether from stress or working out to keep in shape, gives us more of ourselves to present in a "positive" effective way.
           These body-mind improvements have also helped athletes better accomplish what they're being coached to do.  And they've helped business people better integrate what they've learned in seminars.

           Many results are exceptionally long lasting, or even permanent, and much greater re-lengthening results are created in much less time than with massage, acupuncture, trigger point therapy, and reflexology.
          
           As with the removal of stress, all these results are increased when the Postural Integration and Netherton Therapy techniques are included. 
They remove deeper tensions and interfering energies that the bodywork simply doesn't.  It's been especially helpful for actors, singers, announcers and dancers.
           Netherton Reichian release processing with Structural Bodywork Stretching is available by phone.
 
People can do this with me and have the Bodywork in their own area. Rolfing (r), Hellerwork(r), Structural Integration, myofascial release, Lomi (r)work or deep tissue massage are all effective.  Yet even without the Bodywork, or if they've had the Bodywork before, many people can do a lot just on the phone.

Increases Benefits to Other Therapies

           The greater length and better overall alignment created with Structural Integration have regularly improved Chiropractic results and have increased the benefits from Orthopedics and Osteopathy.
           
Excess curves of the spine are often improved, especially lordosis and swayback.  Most lower back pain can be corrected when we correct the tightness and misalignment that cause it.  Even protruding disk or herniated disk problems and pinched nerves have been helped.
            Because the muscular tightness has been re-lengthened and the overall spinal misalignment has been improved, Chiropractors and patients report they get more vertebrae to go in, easier, and they stay in longer.
            The quality of the tissue also improves. That has increased the benefits from the next massages, acupressure, cranial-sacral work, reflexology and even magnetics and other physical therapy techniques.

Full or Partial Transformation 

            While the best and most long lasting results from the Structural Integration system happen when the whole body is treated, even one or two long sessions have helped many people;
removing a lot of recent stress and tension, and noticeably reducing some of their tightness.
            Chronic back pain usually needs a number of sessions to be able to relengthen enough tissue. Some neck and shoulder problems get better quickly.  Others require a deep re-establishment of the body's proper structural shape, as is done for the chronic back pain conditions.  Knee pain often takes a number of hours on at least the legs, back and pelvis.
            Hamstrings can often be lengthened somewhat right away.  But very large athletes with a lot of built up shortness require a number of hours to make them very long again.  The whole "interlocking" leg and pelvic muscle system has to be relengthened to get deep in the hamstrings.
            Specific traumatic episodes can often be cleared with my Postural Integration Plus system in a few hours to a few sessions.  Life long problems from a lot of childhood abuse naturally require a lot of sessions because there is a lot of tension and stored emotional charge.  But as each set of past trauma is cleaned out, significant, cumulative, and long lasting improvements do occur

Postural Integration & Bodymind Therapy

                 
As I've been describing, Structural Integration is often combined with other Bodymind release methods
to increase the long lasting benefits, and create even more significant improvements in our well being.  It can be part of a whole personal growth system.            
              I have included in-depth articles
and testimonials about the system I use, which includes Reichian, Bioenergetic and Netherton therapy methods.
              
I was formally trained in the Postural Integration system and I've added to it.  Postural Integration combines Reichian Therapy, Bioenergetics, Gestalt and Chinese Medicine energy work with the Structural Integration Bodywork.  I also studied with Morris Netherton PhD.
             This combination is very thorough for trauma removal and stress reduction.  It has cleared up phobias and flashbacks.
              It is excellent for emotional release, including the loss of a loved one.  Yet that release itself is less traumatic than without the Netherton technique.  And it's a "feel good" cleaning that's also more comfortable than having the stuff still inside.
              This system actually removes long term negative patterns because it finds and removes the series of "most significant episodes" making up that pattern. 
I have a lot of successful experience helping people remove the restricting effects of abuse.
              This system creates more effective and personally satisfying abilities, at work and in personal relationships.

             As I said above, as far as I know, from my own experience, treatments such as Rolfing, Hellerwork, Movement Enhancement and Postural Integration all employ the Structural Integration Bodywork method.  Practitioners of John Barnes' Myofascial Release are taught to move fascia in a knowledgeable way, but they aren't taught the Structural Integration system.
             I, myself, received Master certification in Postural Integration in 1983.

My Helpful Bodywork Modifications, enabling...
My multi-session Travel
Program
***** Travel Intensive 25 hr Week to Athlete   TESTIMONIAL & DESCRIPTION

            In my own Structural Integration approach, I incorporate advanced relengthening techniques in many sessions that usually aren't done in the basic 10-step process. These enable me to get better results, sooner  than would be common.
            I also work in more than one area in each step, also not that common.  And I work in longer sessions than the usual hour to hour and fifteen minutes.  This all enables me to make people feel better overall, sooner.
 Sometimes, if a person's body is malleable enough, I can relieve even chronic, worsening back pain in a few hours.
          

           I do a lot on the back, shoulders and neck, as well as the head, often right away, and in other sessions as well. This increases flexibility and relaxation even before I begin the usual "unraveling" sequence.  It makes that unraveling do more in the first sessions, too.  T
he repetitive tune ups keep people more relaxed and enable those sessions to do more as well.
          Very importantly, this approach increases our "mind-body awareness."   Besides being great for athletic performance and stress reduction, people can tell more of what the treatment itself is doing for them. 
It also helps remove old emotional energies out of the body easier, when they're released from other muscles.
         
Doing a lot of the head, neck and back, in the first and  many other sessions is not done in the typical week by week 10-step or 11-step program prescribed in the basic Rolfing and Hellerwork recipes. However, some Rolfing and Hellerwork practitioners do sometimes modify from the specific basic recipe to help with certain pains and tightness. Advanced Rolfers and Hellerworkers will also do more in advanced sessions after the basic 10-step program.

           This approach enables me to do "multi-session" travel visits, too.  I combine the longer session, do more areas approach, with my unique hands-on method, and the "structural" stretching exercises that help the next Bodywork sessions do more.
           I drive or fly to the person (or group) and stay a few days to a few weeks, or they come to me.  With this system, we can do a number of long sessions on consecutive days and make great, fast progress.
          
I also include energy work and acupressure, high level nutrition tips, and the optional release techniques,   So we can get a lot done right away, in both the purely physical and/or the psycho-somatic realms.

My Whole Person Programs for Professionals

           Just above, I described the benefits received by business professionals and performing artists.  So I've put together Performance Enhancement programs, tailored to each personal and professional need.
           My multi-feature approach enables me to help people in more parts of their bodies and minds than with just the Bodywork alone. 
Many folks say they feel I'm working on a number of levels at once.       
          Almost all the features are done right during the Bodywork process itself.  So it's a synergistic, whole body and mind approach.  Each feature enables the others to do more.
 
I also refer people to features that I, myself don't provide.  I'm actually known to be a very knowledgeable resource guide.
          These programs, of course, increase physical and professional performance, and simultaneously remove stress, tightness and pain.  They also add support, insight and nourishment, in physical, psychological, nutritional and even spiritual ways.
           A key feature in my approach is educating people about their body-minds.  It's a show and tell about how humans work, and how we can all make ourselves work better, and more enjoyably.  This has worked in both their professional and personal lives.
