Milree is the only Board Certified Structural Integration practitioner in Worcester County, MA. Structural Integration is a system of manual therapy that combines:
- continual assessment of how each client’s body supports itself and moves in gravity,
- soft tissue manipulation using specific, focused touch with client movement for release of tissues that restrict movement or comfort, and
- essential re-education for integrated ease and comfort in basic and complex movement patterns.
Structural Integration is based on the pioneering vision and synthesis of manual approach to the body of Dr. Ida P. Rolf. The system of understanding human resilience in gravity as “weathered” by life underpins the plan for each person in each session. In general, a series of around 8 to 12 sessions of 90 minutes duration is individualized and carefully sequenced to relieve long-held pain and stress, and restore fluidity and ease to the body. The effects are durable over time. Structural Integration is a keystone of physical vitality and fundamental to optimal health.
Milree completed Structural Integration training in 2011 with Tom Myers and the faculty of Anatomy Trains Structural Integration, one of the largest programs recognized by the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI). Further education with Ron Murray, an Osteopath and Structural integrator, continues to deeply inform her approach to the integrated body. Milree is a Registered Nurse and was for over 30 years a Certified Nurse-Midwife, with extensive experience in women’s health, nutritional wellness, and child development. Milree also was a member of the IASI Board of Directors from 2011-2015, and Chair of the Certification Board for Structural Integration (CBSI) from 2015-2020.
