What is Fascia?
Fascia is a connective tissue that supports the structure of the body from head to toe. It surrounds all the structures in the body - muscle, tendons, ligaments, bones, veins, arteries, organs and nerves.
The layers of fascia should glide on each other, with injuries and chronic stress on the system the layers adhere and stick to each other, altering free movement and optimal function.
Goals of Structural Integration
The goals of SI are to produce a more resilient, higher energy system and to establish balanced relationships in gravity. When we are balanced, gravity travels through our center rather than pulling on various points in the body.
A person who has been structurally integrated will experience better adaptability to stress, increased flexibility, improved bio-mechanics, graceful, more fluid and effortless movement, increased energy, and greater self-awareness. A body that is rigid and poorly balanced lacks resilience.
A body that is flexible and in dynamic relationship with its environment bends with stress, and springs back like a blade of grass.
