To make appointments, or to discuss whether KMI Structural Integration will meet your needs, contact me here.

Because it is important to me to meet the needs of my clients for prompt appointments: As of August 30, 2017, I will not schedule NEW CLIENT appointments until further notice. I would like to see you, however, and invite you to check this space for changes, or contact me by email at centralmassbodywork@gmail.com to be added to a waitlist. Thank you.

Every session begins with visual structural and postural assessment which will guide the specific approaches for the manual and movement work that make up the session. The experience of the work is often deeply interior with quiet, focused awareness, but your movement is also called for at times.  Comfortable underwear, running shorts, or a two-piece bathing suit (for women) is the best attire for the sessions. Work is generally done on a massage table or seated bench.

KMI 12-Session Series

The series yields the most effective and lasting results from Structural Integration work.  The work is intentional and addresses your body’s functional patterns in the field of gravity.  Each session has a special and important focus; completion of all of the sessions allows all of the major lines of fascia to be opened and balanced. You also have the time within the series to integrate new options for movement and body use into more effective and efficient patterns. Although each session has a specific set of goals, strategies for reaching those goals are always customized to each your unique pattern of posture and movement. The series can be completed in between 3 and 12 months, but the most long-lasting results rely on the momentum of the process, so I don’t recommend intervals longer than a month between sessions.

Sessions are 90 minutes long; the fee is $150 per session, by cash, check, or credit card.

“Help!” Structural Bodywork Sessions

Sessions can also be designed to address a specific regional pain or movement restriction issue that seems to be confined to one area or region of the body. Myofascial release technique and movement re-education can provide dramatic relief—but pain and restriction frequently are the body’s way of crying out for change in the overall patterns of strain against gravity. Welcome relief may therefore be temporary unless a more effective pattern can be developed.

Sessions are 90 minutes long; the fee is $150 per session, by cash, check, or credit card.

KMI Mini-series

This series of 3-4 sessions is designed to be either an introduction to myofascial integrative work,  a general “tonic” for your posture and overall well-being, or as a “tune-up” at occasional intervals after completing a full series.

Sessions are 90 minutes long; the fee is $150 per session, by cash, check, or credit card.

Health Education and Strategic Support

I am an Advanced Practice Nurse as well as a bodyworker. Each of us has a personal health maintenance strategy, often established with your primary care medical provider. Sometimes it fits you perfectly and is easy for you to maintain. However, you may find that the diet, exercise, or medication plan prescribed for you challenges your ability to follow it through. This can be frustrating and discouraging. I can help you adjust the plan (without interfering in it) to fit your lifestyle, and support you while you make changes step-by-step at a pace that lets you succeed.

Sessions are 30-60 minutes; the fee is $50 per half-hour, by cash or check.

Insurance

I do not bill health insurance companies, but am happy to provide a receipt that allows you to make a claim or submit for flexible spending account reimbursement.
