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.
