The concept we use for this class follows the traditional goals of Structural Integration: While dialoguing using touch with the client’s organism, we aim for better structural alignment and better functional coordination. Ideally we enable a person to move more freely while using less muscular efforts and at the same time we provide access to a large scale of expressiveness.
However, our practice teaches us that frequently we have to be quite modest with our expectations. The great results are not showing as often as the small improvements.
This course wants to value efficient sequences of small improvements that aim for integration of the whole. We may see a fairly sophisticated unfolding while working at a level of non-dramatic intensity which respects both the outside action and the inner being of the person. Clarity of analysis, effectiveness of intervention and predictability of the outcome are the signs we will follow while travelling on this road.
The training will consist of two parts, a two-week segment in Vienna, Austria, and a three-week segment in Bologna.
During the first part we will explore the field of Structural Integration asking the following questions:
What does alignment in the field of gravity mean for the myofascial layers of the container that shapes the body from outside?
- What does alignment mean for the “contents” found inside the organism?
- How do “container” and “content” influence each other to constitute the individual shape and movement pattern of a person?
- What does alignment mean in terms of curvatures and cavities?
During the first two weeks we will spend most of the time with practicums. We will study:
Traditional visual analysis and new palpative modes of evaluation
- Traditional techniques to be applied to the myofascial structures
- Techniques for intermuscular septa within the extremities
- Techniques for interosseous membranes within the extremities
- Techniques for membranes that shape the inner walls of the trunk’s cavities and subcavities
The fairly detailed study of this technical catalogue will lead to a practical strategy of a post-ten single hour of treatment. We will be exploring the potential of this “one-hour concept” by exchanging work with each other and by giving sessions to models.
The learning objectives of these first two weeks of training are:
To arrive at a clear system of analysis before starting treatment by using the traditional visual approach looking at the body – and a step-by-step palpative evaluation of the different layers of fascia and membranes
- To use the findings of our analysis to make a clear choice about the few main restrictions
- To choose from the technical catalogue to be able to release the main restrictions
- To develop communicative skills to work whith the clients capacity of orientation and coordination
