Here is an example of how things can be changed by Structural Integration. The before:
See the video below which will show the process:
Note that the results are lasting. The body, in this case, the feet, will continue to adjust to their situation and begin to incorporate or integrate this change with the rest of the leg and up into the hip. More work will solidify this and help keep the changes and continue the growth.
This is the change though by no means the final:
Ida Rolf called her 10 series session as ‘the recipe’. I have wondered why. Pondering this, I figured this out to my satisfaction which makes so much sense to me.
When you bake a cake, for example, you don’t stop with putting flour into a bowl and then putting sugar next to it, then butter, then eggs, etc. fully mixed batter This will not make anything near a cake. The chemical reaction and blending of these ingredients, however, will.
So it needs to be mixed together. Not even a partial mix will do unless you want uneven texture and taste.
All of the ingredients need to be thoroughly blended so that the chemical reactions can occur, the texture and flavors are consistent.
Then in the oven it goes to have the raw product which began as parts or pieces and was put into a whole, to be further integrated in the oven until there is a finished product…a cake.
The body begins as a disorganized thing that often works one part independently of the other. This makes for an efficient, cumbersome, inflexible one.
With Structural Integration, the body’s parts become more pliable, becoming more homogenous and ordered into a balanced whole.
This putting together of the body has its reward in that it works as a whole, with itself and further with the Earth’s gravitational pull.
The body then continues to integrate, building strength, flexibility and resilience, producing freedom of movement and freedom from pain.
We are the finished product of putting ourselves together. How fortunate there is a technique like this.
Water flowing, in and out. Like the ocean, a waterfall, gushing water. It is constantly in motion. Any stagnate water breads mosquitos, vermin or bacteria.
We are filled with fluids. When we are dehydrated, our systems become clogged, dragging us down. We become dry, stiff, bloated.
Water circulating in our bodies carries nutrients and oxygen to our cells. It moistens tissues, lubricates joints, flushes out waster materials in our bodies…and so much more.
Learn from nature. Watch the water flow. Stay hydrated. Notice how it helps your own body.
Let me help you reclaim your sense of well-being.
Well-being meaning that sense of feeling good, your whole being feeling good, physically, mentally and spiritually.
I find once a body is able to achieve one of those qualities, the rest will follow. Feeling good brings on positivity, creativity, flexibility, mental stimulation…living, not just surviving or same old, same old.
Give yourself, during this transition into Spring, the gift of feeling good, being active, able to push back time to a place where you feel good again. I can help you with that.
My door is open for Structural Integration, Reiki and Scar therapy, all of which can help bring your body back to stasis, to that happy place….Remember it?
While our physical being stands still, the breath still moves, the thoughts still rumble on. There is a lot of motion with it all, inside and out. If we stop, all around us does too. We become stifled, heavy, lazy even. Getting one unstuck from the other is the objective so that all parts of us move in balance, in play with the other aspects of ourselves.
Structural Integration works with the whole entity. Not just the physical. Not just parts. Through the body is how I get to the mind, the emotions. As per Ida Rolf “this is what I can put my hands on.” I think of physically moving, balancing, opening the tissue.
My experience is that changing movement patterns and allowing movement, can help the mind change too.
Opening the spirit once the negative energy is dispelled. By opening the tissue, other parts of the psyche open up, able to experience more, pick up momentum. Move forward.
People often come to me wanting a change. They discover through a few sessions that their thoughts, lives can change. This is partly why they continue. To continue their healing journey. It just goes to a deeper, more spiritual level.
In essence, you change one thing, you change everything. There is a chain reaction. Motion brings things into play, thoughts into action, new ideas, new patterns. This is living.
