Still have a few questions? Please take a minute to review the frequently asked questions about structural integration massage below.
What is Structural Integration (SI)?
SI, is a holistic system combining soft tissue manipulation and movement education to restore the body to its natural state of alignment and balance - by lengthening, restoring, and reorganizing the fascia, the connective tissue matrix of the body.
What is Fascia?
Fascia surrounds and supports all of the muscles, bones and organs in your body in continuous web-like layers. This fascial net, or connective tissue matrix, is the body's internal system of flexible support - giving it strength and shape. The fascial system responds to injury, chronic tension and habitual movement patterns by shortening from both the forces of gravity and the mechanical forces of habitual movement patterns.
How much is a session?
Sessions are $180 each.
How long is each session?
Sessions can last from 1.5 to 2 hours.
What should I wear?
Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. It is recommended that men should wear shorts or boxers and that women wear a sports bra and athletic shorts.
*Do not apply lotion prior to your appointment
*Drink plenty of water prior to your appointment.
How often should I schedule appointments?
Sessions can be completed as often as twice a week, once a week, every other week or once monthly depending on your availability and response to treatment.
After my ten series, how often should I come back?
Upon completion of a basic ten series, I recommend that you allow a period of time (about 2 to 4 months) for the body to fully integrate the changes before seeking out additional work. This is referred to as the “unwinding” period. Similarly to that of a car, your body needs routine maintenance to perform at its most optimal that is why it is important to schedule “tune ups.”
