Hellerwork Structural Integration
Structural Bodywork | Movement Education | Somatic Dialogue
I am a Hellerwork Structural Integration Practitioner in Training and will graduate from the Universal College of the Healing Arts in March 2021.
I utilize manual therapy techniques to restore the client’s fascia back to it’s natural, healthy state which is elastic and fluid. As more space is created in and around the joints and musculature, the client experiences an alignment that is as dynamic and fluid as it is stable.
The structural bodywork component of Hellerwork is systematic, following a series of 11-sessions. Each session has a focus on achieving alignment in a certain area of the body, with the overarching goal of supporting the whole body.
The client also receives movement lessons that focus on integrating the newly achieved pattern, and exploring new possibilities for self expression through movement.
During the session I work with the client in a process called somatic dialogue. This dialogue supports the client in developing a deeper mind-body connection. Simply, it helps one become aware of how their thoughts, feelings and beliefs affect their body, and how their body affects their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. It gives the client the opportunity to ground emotions in the body, and to explore what emotions underlay physical sensations.
