Structural Integration

The type of Structural Integration techniques, utilized at Structural Wisdom, are Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) based on The Anatomy Trains by Thomas Myers.  Structural Integration utilizes a slow manipulation of muscle and fascia along with client movement, to create balance in the structure of the body.  Fascia is a type of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, organs, blood vessels and runs from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. 


Structural Wisdom is currently offering a 12-series of Structural Integration.


Structural Integration is best described by Thomas Myers himself:

"The design of KMI(Kinesis Myofascial Integration) is to unwind the strain patterns residing in your body’s locomotor system, restoring it to its natural balance, alignment, length, and ease. Common strain patterns come about from inefficient movement habits, and our body’s response to poorly designed cars, desks, telephones, and airplanes, etc. Individual strain patterns come from imitation when we are young, from the invasions of injury or surgery or birth, and from our body’s response to traumatic episodes. Beginning as a simple gesture of response, movements can become a neuromuscular habit. The habitual movement forms one’s posture, and the posture requires changes in the structure – the body’s connective tissue ‘fabric’. In other words, a gesture becomes a habit becomes a posture and eventually lodges in our structure. These changes are rarely for the better – anything that pulls us out of alignment means that gravity works on pulling us into more misalignment or increased tension to counteract the force.  Compensation begets  compensation, and more symptoms.  KMI is designed to unwind this process and reduce structural stresses.  The method depends on a unique property of the body’s connective tissue network."
