Welcome to New Renaissance Integrated Therapies
The New Renaissance can begin with the Rolf Method of Structural Integration, which uses similar core concepts and applied methodologies as Hellerwork and Rolfing. Expect transformations in the structural blocks to your vitality as you deepen into the fluid matrix of your body’s vitality, a process that Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy gently invites. Together, these powerful therapies constitute a continuum from deep tissue intervention and integration, to gentle fluid-based neural work that balances and potentiates the most powerful forces of your constitution. Doctoral work in Psychology forms a background of safety for those interested in diversified inquiry into the nature of health and disease processes of all kind.
What is Structural Integration?
The Rolf Method of Structural Integration is an educational experience designed to produce dramatic structural results in the body. Throughout this series of ten sessions deep holding and stress patterns are released as the body learns new ways to move dynamically. Awareness practices, movement exercises and practical tools are given at the end of each session to help integrate the changes that happen on the table into daily life. The Rolf method is a profound process of physical education and personal transformation.
The intention behind Structural Integration is to create a relationship between the separate parts of the body and the body as a whole thereby increasing awareness and energy.
The Structural Integration Practitioner builds supportive connections throughout the body (right to left, front to back, top to bottom, and inner to outer,) so the entire body is guided towards greater balance around a core vertical axis.
Rather than addressing a person’s aches and pains in a localized area, the S.I. Practitioner approaches the entire body as a whole. The approach is looking beyond individual complaints and focusing into the entire body system for the cause of pain and dysfunction.
EXAMPLE: LOW BACK PAIN is usually not a localized problem- it’s a symptom of something else going on in the body. Many times back pain, body aches and injuries can be traced to a lack of support in the feet and legs, or in the misalignment between the pelvis and shoulder girdle. By creating a more coherent structure of the body, individual symptoms often disappear: Improve structure, improve function. The process of integrating the body as a whole involves a series of ten individual sessions.
