FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
What to Wear?
you stand and walk so that I can see how the bones align, how your
body moves, and how your body carries tension in the musculature.
It’s helpful for me to be able to see your legs, mid-section,
and shoulders. Shorts and a sports bra, a camisole, or a tank-top
is good. Some people just wear their underwear, and I’ve worked
with people in long pants—wear whatever works for you, the most
important thing is that are comfortable.
How long is a session?
will usually last between 75 and 90 minutes, give or take a few
minutes, depending on the body’s needs. Allow an additional 30
minutes for check-in at the beginning of the first session, for a
total of about two hours.
Does it hurt?
Structural Integration should be
relaxing with an overall feeling of relief—it does not need to be
painful. Done with clear communication, the client will direct the
appropriate amount of pressure for an enjoyable session. With
patience, sensitivity, respect, kindness, and encouragement, the
body will respond by breathing deeply, relaxing, and opening to
receive the work.
Why does this work last?
A balanced structure will
continue to stand with integrity,
with the bottom segments supporting the top—Structural
Integration creates balance throughout the body structure so
that all of the body-segments will support one-another from the
ground up, starting with the feet.
The muscles will be able to
function properly without pulling the bones out of alignment.
Enhanced mobility throughout the body will maintain softness,
suppleness, and length in the muscles and surrounding tissue.
my insurance cover your fees?
I can take insurance for
auto-accident and workman’s comp claims with a doctor’s referral.
