This therapeutic method focuses on treating the fascia sheath, which is the connective tissue enveloping all the organs in our body. The fascia is the key to a considerable part of our body’s postures and pain mechanisms.
This treatment method is based on anatomical diagnoses and analysis of movement patterns. It is suitable for localized treatment of a mobility impairment or for treating localized pain, and is characterized by providing a series of treatments for improving posture, thus resolving the pain by treating its source.
Before starting the treatment, a posture diagnosis process will be carried out, and the treatment itself will be conducted by means of a unique technique that provides relief from the very first session.
This therapeutic axis is a highly powerful treatment tool, unifying therapeutic approaches that have been developed significantly over the past 40 years by leading trailblazers such as Ida Rolf who developed the Rolfing method, Tom Myers who continued her approach and developed the Anatomy Trains method, Luigi Stecco who came from the world of medicine and physiotherapy, Jean-Pierre Barral who is regarded today as the cutting edge in the field of osteopathy, Milton Trager, and others.
Structural integration, then, focuses directly on the fascia and offers therapeutic outcomes that are felt immediately. Patients report considerable alleviation of pain intensity, rehabilitation and improvement of movement ranges, postural support and improvement in posture disorders, and alleviation of chronic inflammations and persistent pain in the musculoskeletal system.
This method is very suitable for treating chronic or acute body pain.
As part of the first treatment, diagnosis will be carried out to identify the origin of the pain or injury, and the treatment itself is accompanied by muscle-skeleton manipulations on the treatment bed.
In the last part of the session, the patient will be given directions for further treatment that will be carried out by her/himself by means of local movement instruction, adapting the relevant activity type in the event of skeletal injuries and posture disorders.
