Structural Bodywork

refers to manual therapies that are aimed at improving postural alignment. These therapies help the recipient oppose gravity more efficiently, thereby reducing the load on the muscles and ligaments. Some forms of structural bodywork such as Structural Integration (Rolfing) and myofascial release involve deep manipulation of the connective tissue (fascia) to promote structural alignment. Dynamic Structural Learning (DSL) is another form of bodywork that places emphasis on postural balancing. DSL is considered to be a gentle form of manual therapy that promotes client awareness and facilitates independence through self-performed yoga-type exercises specific to the individual’s postural alignment.
