• Personalised bodywork for those experiencing chronic pain, muscle tension and discomfort, who want to be empowered and revitalised through functional movement therapy.

    YES! That's what I want!

Imagine for a moment…the feeling of having a light, fluid, and balanced body – free of pain, stiffness, and chronic stress. 

A body that is flexible, and at ease with itself, as well as the earth’s gravitational field.

 These are the goals of Structural Integration.

 

STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION (SI) is a type of bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body. Fascia surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, organs, and nerves, binding some structures together while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other.
~ The International Association of Structural Integration (IASI)

 

Emma Simpson, Board Certified Structural Integrator uses a variety of advanced structural integration, bodywork, and myofascial integration techniques, as well as yoga therapy in her Lilyfield and Balmain clinics to get your body moving as it was perfectly designed to do — unencumbered by pain and tight, compressed muscles, joints and connective tissue.
 
Functional fascia is the body’s infrastructure for creating fluid movement, and movement is medicine – both for the body and the mind.

then spontaneously the body heals itself.”
