What's on this Site
My Structural Integration Bodywork has
successfully and repeatedly
fixed back pain,
& even severe back tightness & other structural pain due to tightness as well.
It often improves and even "cures" sciatica. Knee
pain has been helped, and
it has significantly re-lengthened chronic hamstring tightness.
It helps pain and tightness in legs, pelvis. neck, shoulders, chests, sides, bellies, arms
It increases Athletic Performance.
Tightness from working out, or from lack of movement, has easily been loosened, scar tissue can
be broken up, and injuries in tight muscular areas can be helped to
heal faster. Injuries like pulled muscles can be
prevented because the tissue is much longer again.
This treatment works very well in
conjunction with physical activity and physical therapy programs. It has helped children as young as 5
and seniors to 91 be more physically agile. A number of elite
athletes and college coaches have been very pleased with the
significant results they received.

effective in removing stress 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
our abilities to think clearly and process large amounts
Months and years of
accumulated stress are removed
at the same time that tightness all over the body is re-lengthened.
Built-up emotional charge in the tissues, from stress, gets
Faces look more
open, less stressed, and even younger. Eyes get more relaxed.
Neck strain 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.
This has helped many people
express themselves more
openly and more confidently. And their minds were calmer and

method, we aren't directly fixing pains in the way medical doctors
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,
We are creating better overall structural alignment. The
relationship of muscles and
bones is 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
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, and other people,
have expressed their feelings and intentions better, and more
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.

length and better overall alignment
improved Chiropractic results and has 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.
Benefits to Massage
These structural, physiological
and even energy improvements have made it
easier for people to

While the best and most long lasting
results 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.

Structural Integration has often been combined with other
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 method techniques.
The combination removes
trauma and stress more thoroughly. It is excellent for
emotional release, yet that release itself is less traumatic. And it creates more
effective and personally satisfying abilities, at work and in

Integration in 1983.
