Frequently Asked Questions

Most people come to Structural Integration for help with pain, discomfort or impaired mobility. Others come to SI because they just want a deeper connection to their body and want to improve their quality of life. SI improves performance, enhances posture, and expand personal growth. Learn more about SI on our About Page.

Sessions are typically an hour and a half. They begin with a visual assessment of walking and standing to assess structural patterns. After this, the bodywork portion of the session can last anywhere from forty five minutes to an hour and fifteen minutes.

The cadence of the 10 sessions is entirely up to you. Most clients choose to do one session per week, but there is no wrong way. We will make it work for you.

Skin contact is preferable so most people wear supportive underwear, a bathing suit, or loose fitting shorts. Women usually wear a bra/sports bra (it is never necessary to be completely unclothed).

We are located at 13 Kilburn Street in Burlington, VT, inside Vermont Natural Family Medicine.

Sessions are $120 with the option of purchasing 10 sessions at a discounted rate.

Unfortunately not. Clients have been able to pay me through HSA’s.

Even though Structural Integration is at times deep work, it is not fast or rough or abusive. When making space in or differentiating areas that are tight or stuck together, it can be briefly uncomfortable. Another way of thinking of it is, if you’ve been holding onto something for a long time, it can be intense on the way out, but our practice closely monitors your progress throughout the session to avoid working beyond your comfort zone.

Typically, the term massage is a broad term that refers to many styles of bodywork. The focus of most massage therapy training is relaxation not structural balance. Some “deep tissue” massage works to release local patterns of structural strain, but this is not usually done as part of a strategy to balance the whole body. Chiropractic is primarily concerned with freeing spinal joint restrictions and promoting nerve flow to and from the spine. It does not address the soft tissue patterns of the whole body and their influence on structural balance. Structural Integration uses gentle soft tissue techniques to treat osseous restrictions that are a part of the overall body pattern. Structural Integration, massage and Chiropractic care can be used together in a complimentary way. If you have any further questions, feel free to give us a call, text, or email.
