Clients often ask me how I got into this work. Here's the story.
I had been practicing traditional massage for almost 10 years before I found structural integration. But if I'm being honest, I think it found me.
Like many people, I used to get massages every month for my trouble areas. For me, that was my neck (I had headaches almost daily). Massage and chiropractic helped alleviate my symptoms for a bit, but they always came back within a few days. I saw the same pattern with my clients and most of them were in worse shape than I was.
I was always on the lookout for something more. Even with all the continuing ed courses I took, it felt like something was missing. I wasn't looking for something that would just last longer. I wanted to find what would actually help people get better.
I seriously considered persuing an intensive specialization in trigger point therapy. Of all the types of massage I had, that seemed to work the best for me. Who knows why I didn't follow through with it...I think my subconsicous was waiting for something bigger.
I began working with a structural integrator and when I received some sessions from him, I quickly realized this wasn't just a different style of massage. He worked on places that no one else ever had, in a way no one else ever had. It was different than anything else I'd experienced. It was actually changing my body, not just helping me feel better for a little while.
I stopped having regular neck pain and headaches. But it was more than that. I finally found what I had been looking for all those years...transformation.
