Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing, manually releases body stress and tension that prevent postural alignment and balance.
Most pain relates to muscles and joints. Muscles and joints bear the strain when bodies are overused, misused, and unbalanced. Body balance also affects circulation, digestion, and the nervous system.
The muscles and skeleton is the largest energy user of the body. When the body is under strain, the result is fatigue, pain, and reduced athletic performance.
I see my job as a massage therapist as that of a body educator. There is nothing that makes me happier than to see previously uncomfortable and suffering animals able to enjoy their jobs with a bright look on their face.
