About Excelsior Bodywork
Excelsior Bodywork specializes in Structural Integration.
Structural Integration is deep-tissue bodywork that addresses restrictions and misalignments in muscle and connective tissue. Treatment sessions last 60-75 minutes and take place on a therapy table and bench. The work seeks to alleviate chronic pain, correct poor posture, restore full range of motion, and increase motor function. Full participation of the client is required. Structural integration is not a passive therapy.
A few years ago I struggled with severe neuropathy in my feet and legs. I was completely numb from the ankle down and my calves often cramped so tightly I couldn't walk. None of the doctors I consulted had any relief or even any answers for me. My condition was a result of months of chemotherapy. I was thankfully alive, but the quality of my life was severely compromised. Somewhat out of desperation, I made an appointment with a structural integrator. By the end of the session I felt my toes for the first time in years. I cried real tears of joy. Before I got home I had decided to pursue this knowledge, to learn the techniques and study the body in hopes of being able to help others in the way I had been helped. I can't promise you an experience as transformative as mine, but I'm nearly certain that together we can can find you some relief and begin the process of unwinding inhibiting patterns, finding more space and balance in your body.
