I recently attended a seminar called Yes to Success, www.yestosuccess.com. We covered so many topics like creating new neural pathways, letting go a negative thought processes, visualizing what we what, goal setting and gratefulness. Deb Poneman is a great speaker and teacher. I recommend it to everyone no matter where you are at in your life.
She had a guest speaker, Brooks Palmer, who is an expert clutter buster, www.clutterbusting.com. He was very funny and poignant about clearing our spaces of things that don’t serve us, things with which we don’t interact. These things tend to pull us down and clog our ability to create and be productive.
Are you seeing a segue here? Structural Integration is clutter busting for the body. Chronic pain and discomfort, stiffness, achiness, bad posture, headaches,and inflexibility are signs that our bodies have become disorganized and cluttered.
There is an ideal way for the body to function. Let’s be realistic though. Few of us meet this ideal. We are all a little cluttered. Perhaps from an injury or a chronic stress our bodies have gotten disorganized and need some cleaning up.
How does SI unclutter a body? By manually manipulating the soft tissue or fascia we free the body of its chronic holding patterns. We seek to rebalance and realign the body’s relationships.
An uncluttered body is not weighed down with the excess baggage of being at war with gravity. It is light, moves with grace and breaths easier. Clutter brings us down. Organization frees us to be productive and create. This sounds good to me.
