The Importance of Structural Integration

One important principle of Structural Integration is that the body is significantly affected by the powerful force of gravity. In a misaligned state, the body's valuable resources are used inefficiently, laboring to keep a person upright in the field of gravity. In addition, the stresses of daily life, physical injuries, unhealthy movement patterns and attitudes are things that can take a toll on one’s physical structure. Over time, the body will shorten and tighten to accommodate stresses, creating stiffness, pain, fatigue and lack of well being.
