What is SI?
Structural Integration (most commonly known as Rolfing) is a process of re-education and alignment of the body through movement and touch. The primary focus is to facilitate the relationship between the human body and gravity. By releasing tension throughout the body it is possible to create greater balance and ease of motion.
Structural Integration Practitioner
By lengthening and opening the patterns in the connective tissue, the thickened toughened tissue becomes softer, more pliable, and rehydrated thus allowing more movement and flexibility in the body. Structural Integration (SI), most commonly referred to as Rolfing, systematically changes and organizes the body in relation to gravity. Clients typically report a lightness in movement and ease of motion as well as a general feeling of wellbeing.
Many of Nick’s Clients tend to be in their mid 50s and are looking to get back in hape and are burdened by years of inactivity. SI returns the body to a normal state of organization and frees the body of restrictions to to adhesions in the layers of fascia.
Employee Wellness Programs
Nicholas Wawok has spent years learning techniques and studying programs that quickly, safely, and effectively fix muscular pain. These techniques are based in Structural Integration (AKA Rolfing). He can also offer ergonomic advice. Common conditions treated include, but are not limited to carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain, sciatica, and foot pain.
SI for Athletes
Athletes can expect their games to improve by leaps and bounds. SI allows the athlete’s body to reach its hidden potential. Overtraining and poor form can be remedied through a series of sessions. The client can expect a more balanced form and ease of motion. Nick was initially introduced to SI due to his own athletic conquests. After being injured in a snowboarding accident SI relieved the pain associated with the incident and completely transformed his riding abilities. Balance is improved dramatically by awakening the intrinsic muscles of the body thereby reducing any restrictions holding the athlete back. Run faster and jump higher through SI.
