Structural Integration

is a hands-on body therapy that helps to relieve physical discomfort and enhance the structural alignment of the body through a series of 10 sessions.

It guides bodies towards new postures of balance and ease. I focus on identifying muscle and connective tissue restrictions that affect the function of the body as a whole. These restrictions are then released to decrease pain, improve movement and reduce stress. I am able to identify these restrictions through observation and palpation so that the work I do addresses each person's unique situation. I have nearly 40 years of experience in doing and teaching this work.

On a physical level, it increases flexibility, reduces or eliminates many types of pain and creates feelings of lightness in the body. On an emotional level, it calms the nervous system to allow for deep feelings of relaxation and regeneration.

Anxiety and stress are two common problems in our modern world. This unique style of body therapy has a long history of being amazingly useful in reducing both of these disturbing conditions.

“There is one major reason to take Rolfing seriously: it works. Not only can it dramatically change people's bodies, it can transform their lives as well. Rolfing is powerful stuff."  - Larry Dossey, M.D., Director Dallas General Hospital

FarrahFrom my clinic: a typical change, from a "posture of anxiety"
to a more open and spacious body. Symptoms of imbalance
included jaw clenching, headaches and shortness of breath.
Also typical: a change in height of about 2.5cm as a result of
significant decompression in the trunk and neck.


Remedial Massage

These treatments who people who want to correct specfic musculosketal problems via myofascial release, dry needling and joint mobilisation. 

A combination of these three approaches provides powerful treatments for muscles spasm, chronic stiffness and joint pain. I work to blend skilful corrections of dysfunction with work that is profoundly relaxing.
