Structural Integration

iStock_000011264012_SmallThe SI method (sometimes called Rolfing) involves direct manipulation of the fascia. By applying slow deep pressure to areas of restriction, the body’s tissues can be mobilised enabling the joints to find their natural alignment.

In an SI session, the body’s current posture and range of movement is assessed with the main goal being to restore options for movement.

The work is carried out both on and off the table and usually in direct skin-contact where possible. Clients actively participate with the process to help re-educate the body and refine the proprioceptive sense.

Where possible homework exercises will be provided so that the work can carry on outside of the session and integrate with daily activities for longer lasting effect.

Scar Work

Everything in our body, bones, muscles, tendons, organs etc.  is connected via fascial tissue which is fluid and flexible to enable movement.  After a trauma, surgery or a burn, the scar tissue usually forms in a very thick and  fibrotic manner with gluey adhesions that stick the fascia together reducing movement, impeding function and producing pain.

ScarWork is a specialised form of fascial therapy that uses a range of techniques to ease restrictions and soften scar tissue restoring both elasticity and hydration to promote healing. It is typically very sensitive work employing light touch and improvements usually happen within 1 session.  It is suitable for children and even scars that are decades old can respond to treatment. Freeing up scar tissue can release tension which can have a postive body-wide effect.
