Rolfing® Structural Integration

Rolfing Structural Integration (SI) may have the ability to dramatically alter a person’s posture and structure.

Rolfing (SI) is a holistic form of bodywork that realigns the whole body by releasing and reorganizing the connective tissues, called fascia. It potenially resolves discomfort, reduces compensations and alleviates pain.

Benefits

  • Improves body alignment
  • Reduces pain
  • Speeds up recovery from injury
  • Increases flexibility freedom of movement and range of motion
  • Improves balance
  • Enhances performance
  • Boosts energy
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves circulation
  • Eliminates toxins
  • Increases body awareness

What to expect

A Rolfing SI session is done on a massage table as the therapist manipulates the client’s connective tissue. A movement component may occur within a Rolfing SI session or be done as separate movement lessons. For best results, it’s optimal to do a series of 10 sessions. The 10 sessions are cumulative and work towards specific goals to systematically balance and optimize the structure and function (movement) of the entire body. It may also be reduced to 3 or 6 sessions according to your needs or wishes.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive form of bodywork developed to reduce the body’s stress levels and relieve acute or chronic pain. It stimulates and supports the body’s natural abilities to heal itself. Bowen Therapy benefits people of all ages and physical abilities.

Bowen works with the body to:

  • Reset the autonomic nervous system into the deep relaxation and healing mode
  • Improve recovery time from surgery or injury from sports or accident
  • Release fascia and muscle tension
  • Improve skeletal alignment for better joint mobility and posture
  • Improve circulation
  • Stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Improve the immune system
  • Improve hydration and nutrient absorption
  • Restore the natural flow of vital energy (Chi)
  • Readjust hormone levels helping to restore chemical balance
  • Promote holistic balance physically and emotionally

What to expect

Bowen work consists of a series of gentle rolling moves on specific areas of the body. Frequent pauses in-between allow the body time to fully respond. Each person will respond differently, healing at their own pace. You lie on a treatment table or are seated. Bowen moves are performed either on the skin or through light, loose clothing, based on your preference.

During the first session, we will discuss your medical history, reasons for coming, and include a treatment. Each follow-up session begins with an update on how you have responded to the previous one to determine the next course of treatment. Each session is 45-60 minutes. Acute conditions usually respond in 1-3 sessions. Additional sessions may be required for chronic health problems. Sessions are booked 7-10 days apart.

Following treatment, it is recommended that you forgo any other manipulative or energetic therapies for five days as your body is still going through adjustments to re-organize and heal.

Conditions that respond well

  • Musculoskeletal pain such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, neck pain, migraines, back pain, sciatica, hip, knee, foot or ankle problems, arthritic pain
  • Digestive disorders including colic
  • Gynaecological problems
  • Respiratory problems
  • Depression, earaches, fibromyalgia and much more

About the Practitioner(s) Barbara Gordon

Barbara Gordon, Bowen Therapist, BODY HARMONICS Pilates Certified Teacher

For six years, I suffered from chronic low back pain. I had to be careful how I got out of bed, how I stepped off a curb, how I sat, how I stood and how I bent down. My life was full of restrictions. I felt old. After trying many therapies over the years I had four sessions of Bowen and my pain melted away. That was 10 years ago. Now I have my life back. I was, and am, so astounded by the subtlety and profound strength of this therapy that I had to find out more. In the process, Bowen Therapy has become the deeply rewarding focus of my life’s work.

About the Practitioner(s) Frances James

Frances is a dedicated and qualified Registered Massage Therapist living and working in Toronto. Originally from Nova Scotia, Frances came to Toronto to work in the film and television industry as a special effects artist and stop-motion animation technician. After fifteen years in the industry she decided to move into a more nurturing, health-related field. “Why massage? It’s a question I’m often asked. I was always giving neck and shoulder massages to my coworkers, especially in the animation world. When several people recommended I pursue this as an option, I began to look into it seriously. In massage, I finally have the blend of art and science I was looking for. Sculpture and painting have given me excellent palpation skills and the ability to ‘visualize’ the muscles and bone.”

Naturopathy

Naturopathic Medicine is a health care system that combines modern scientific knowledge with traditional philosophies. It is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

​Your wellbeing is best supported when the underlying causes of health and disease are addressed, and when all aspects of you as an individual are included in this process. By incorporating herbal medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, Chinese medicine and lifestyle counselling, naturopathic care works gently and effectively to restore these foundations. Traditional methods of assessment and laboratory tests are used to guide the choice of therapies. 

Conditions addressed

  • Women’s health concerns including pregnancy and mom care, infertility, menstrual health and menopause
  • Gastrointestinal concerns, including conditions such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Hormonal and immune imbalances such as thyroid disease, allergies and asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and skin conditions

First appointment

During the first appointment your detailed health history will be gathered and all concerns will be discussed in detail. Based on this information, further testing may be requested or and an initial treatment plan formed. By the end of the second consultation, nutritional review and recommendations as well as the full treatment plan are completed.

Follow up visits

The frequency of follow-up appointments varies from patient to patient and depends on the condition(s) being treated. After the first and second consultations, you can plan to follow up approximately every 3-6 weeks.

Fascial Stretch Therapy

Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is an assisted table-based stretching system where the fascia is the primary focus as it is the key element when achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief.

Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and invests in all structures of the body. It has the capability to help open up joints, surrounding muscles and other tissues so you move with more ease and less tension. Fascia is integrated through all structures of the body so it will thicken and shorten when any of your tissues are under stress from poor posture, lack of exercise, injury, surgery, disease or over-training. FST™ is able to treat inflexible fascia at the deepest level - your joint capsule. We help make your layers of fascia more pliable which helps increase your joint range of motion, muscle strength & flexibility. This freedom of movement helps improve your training, maintainability and everyday life. 

Benefits

  • Improved posture
  • Decreased muscle soreness and tension
  • Reduced risk of injury - especially sprains and strains
  • Release of endorphins to reduce stress

What to expect

The fascial stretch therapy session takes place on a massage table and incorporates comfortable straps used to stabilize the limbs or part of the body that is not being worked on. This facilitates relaxation and enhances the effectiveness of the technique.

MAT (Muscle Activation Technique)

Movement is fundamental to our health. A muscle's ability to contract efficiently is critical for optimal movement.

When muscles don't contract efficiently, range of motion and overall physical performance are compromised. The MAT Specialist is able to determine which muscles lost their ability to contract efficiently. A manual muscle activation technique is then applied to restore the muscle's efficiency. Afterwards, movement in the joint is tested to ensure that the restored range of motion is well balanced with the renewed degree of the muscle's contractability.

Benefits

MAT increases range of motion and strength, improving the overall physical performance. The technique is gentle and non-invasive. It instantly demonstrates how critical the muscle’s ability to contract is to any type of movement.

What to expect

The session takes place on a massage table. It begins with an assessment using various movements and gentle palpations by the MAT Specialist. Then the interplay between a gentle manual muscle activation and re-assessment begins. The technique may feel subtle. However, once you stand and check your range of motion, you realize how profound the results are.

About the Practitioner(s)

Sue-Anne Watkins Sue-Anne is a Certified Muscle Activation Technique Specialist. She studied under MAT Founder, Gregg Roskopf, in Denver, Colorado and received her certification in this exciting new technique in 2009. Having taught yoga and Pilates for 10 years, she has a deep understanding and an abundance of experience working with movement and muscle control. Sue-Anne realizes the difficulty and frustration experienced by people when limited range of motion and weakness hinders their performance in daily activities. She is dedicated in helping you achieve your movement goals.
