Alignment and balance in gravity increases body awareness
Arousing a feeling of, finally, being at home in your body!
My specialty: Structural Integration
Due to injury or less than healthy condition, the body becomes adversely affected by the constant force of gravity. Attempting to keep the person upright, over time negative patterns are created, layered with chronic pain, stiffness,...debility. This is one of the most significant principles of Structural Integration, the amazing creation of Dr. Ida Rolf.
Structural Integration is typically executed as a progression of ten sessions. Focus is on Fascia, connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, organs, and every other tissue. As the fascia returns to its healthy, hydrated state, every tissue encased in it is also rehabilitated. Although Dr. Rolf originally designed the SI Ten Series to work in sequence, I will validate each session to your unique needs.

Warning! Because it is an intense therapy, it is not recommended for people with heart conditions and severe osteoporosis.

You are in complete control of what happens in your sessions. At first, the discomfort might feel unbearable, just breath, it is only temporary as the fascia finally lets go,... after how many years?
Bio
Due to a debilitating injury 2004, she was introduced to the Rolf Method of Structural Integration as developed by Ida P. Rolf. Thoroughly convinced, in 2005, she studied under Chuck Carpenter, Certified Advanced Rolfer, at the School of Integrative Therapies in Holmdel, New Jersey. Susan graduated as Structural Integration Practitioner in 2006.

Still loving every year of my journey as Self-Employed Massage Therapist since 1989, and Structural Integration Practitioner since 2006!
