Why work with posture?
As we develop, grow, and go throughout our lives, our bodies develop patterns or strategies for moving through the world. Some of these strategies might be adaptations to pain, stress, injury, prolonged sitting, emotional patterning, or repetitive movement. They serve a purpose at the time of their development, but over time, inefficient and effortful habits may contribute to patterns of chronic pain and tension.
Structural integration works to change the body's relationship to gravity and can illuminate new postural and movement possibilities, bringing the body into a higher level of organization, to move more fluidly, breathe more freely, and sit and stand with less effort and discomfort.
