“Structural integration is about the whole person: It is about fascia and feeling.
The sensation of moving from Weakness into strength, the exhilaration of owning a new part of oneself, the immediate and simultaneous re-education of
ones being and action, the joy of self-empowerment, waking up:
These are the experiences of Structural Integration.”

Emmet Hutchins
