Hellerwork Structural Integration
With more than 30 years of results to reference Structural Integration has long been the secret of professional dancers, Olympic athletes, musicians and many others determined to find relief for pain and injuries that interfere with their chosen vocation and lives.
This powerful integrated system of structural bodywork has medical doctors directing patients with chronic aches toward this intense body therapy as a way of easing pain, increasing flexibility and improving alignment. Hellerwork Structural Integration allows you to optimize how you use your body by making the connection between movement, body alignment and personal awareness.
The result is natural free movements, optimum balance to your body’s structure and open up expression.
Although Hellerwork Structural Integration may be effective for temporary pain or tension relief, we recognize that pain and tension are usually the result of an overall pattern of imbalance occurring in the person. Rather than treating the pain or tension “symptom” of this imbalance, Hellerwork Structural Integration focuses on re-balancing the entire body, returning it to a more aligned, relaxed and youthful state.
Hellerwork Structural Integration practitioners are trained in the application of functional biomechanical and kinesiological analysis and in what they believe are effective ways of changing a client’s structure.
Often connective tissue (specifically fascia) is manipulated to allow body segments to shift to a more balanced position. Re-education of the client’s movement patterns and other modalities are commonly used in the belief that they can achieve or support the goal of improved alignment.
