Structural Integration – Structural Functional Bodywork™ (SFB) – Reflexology – Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Structural Integration (SI) is a scientifically validated body therapy that focuses not on the muscles but on their protective layer, called fascia. Muscles are tissues that contract and provide the body and organs with physical movement. Fascia surrounds the bones, muscles, and organs in the body creating its shape and structure. Fascia creates separation between vessels, organs, bones and muscles and space through which delicate nerves, blood vessels and fluids pass. Structural Integration aims to separate and reposition the fascia in order to achieve more efficient alignment and balance in the structure. In (10) sessions, an SI practitioner can touch into most of a body’s fascial net giving it a newfound sense of awareness, freedom and ease. Each session follows a general protocol based on the brilliant work of Ida Rolf. ‘Rolfing’ is another name used for this type of work when performed by someone trained by the Rolf Institute.
“With years of life under our belts, we tend to stack up a good number of self-limiting habits, postures, traumas, and injuries. Our body is a written record of our life’s experiences and can in itself become self-limiting. Because life is constantly moving and flowing, change is inevitable. It is possible to let go of both physical and emotional holding in the body that does not serve us in the present without diminishing the significance of those past experiences that helped shape who we are in the world. Lightening the load on your body and mind through Structural Integration can be one of the most freeing and empowering things you do for yourself.” Kaylee Cahoon
- Sessions are most effective 1-3 weeks apart.

Structural Functional Bodywork™
Structural Functional Bodywork (SFB™) is an approach to balance created by Kaylee Cahoon that allows clients to benefit from some of the concepts of both Structural and Functional Integration without committing to the full 10 session Ida Rolf protocol. Promoting whole body connectedness through the manipulation of fascia along with gentle movements, Structural Functional Bodywork™ aims to bring specific areas of your body that are calling for attention by way of pain, dysfunction or discomfort back into the whole structure. The number of sessions needed varies from 1-6, depending on how quickly desired results are achieved. In order to address and impact the entire structure and a lifetime of habits and history, the (10) series of Structural Integration listed above is recommended.
Structural Integration and Structural Functional Bodywork™ has been used to successfully treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, pain, and dysfunctions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Tendinitis, Tendinosis, Bursitis, nerve entrapment, thoracic outlet syndrome, scoliosis, TMJ pain, Fibromyalgia, general back pain, and other pain and/or dysfunction associated with the connective tissue, bad posture, and limitations to range of motion.

Reflexology is a specific massage technique performed on the extremities (feet, hands, ears, face) to calm and soothe the nervous system and encourage homeostasis, while also addressing and relieving tension in these area due to overactivity.
