WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
Most of my clients report increased mobility and less pain in three sessions (or less). After completing 10 sessions, my clients report the ability to do many of the things they couldn’t do before Structural Integration. Each session has an individual goal. And following sessions continue to build upon the previous one with cumulative results. My clients report such things as improved posture, greater fluidity of movement and agility, and less pain. Beyond physical improvements, my clients cite additional benefits such as greater confidence, enhanced emotional well-being and increased spiritual awareness. Please take a moment to read their testimonials.

SCAR TISSUE THERAPY
Scars from surgery, broken bones, acne and other bodily trauma can leave you feeling less than whole. If a recent surgery like a C-section, a mastectomy or knee/hip replacement has left an unsightly or painful mark, or if a bad cut hasn’t healed property —there’s good news: additional healing and less pain are possible.
If you have scars, then you know they can bring physical and emotional pain. No two scars are alike, and scar tissue changes quickly. After surgery, it’s best to get to work on your scar as soon as possible —the sooner the better. With Scar Tissue Therapy, you’ll experience less distortion and less pain with your scars.
My clients are always amazed by the surprising light touch of the therapy. It literally feels like kneading bread dough —yet it’s targeted and extremely effective. With Scar Tissue Therapy, your nerves can be brought back to full function after treatment. And you’ll experience rapid and extensive improvements with your scars in a short period of time.
