Morales Method® Core Integration Therapy

A Unique Approach to Structural Integration Bodywork

by Marty Morales, Certified Advanced Rolfer™

 

Gaining an understanding of the client as a 'whole' and not just a sum of their parts is the next paradigm in bodywork and what is classically called Structural Integration. Being able to read and assess a client in movement and then formulate a plan that takes into consideration the tensegrity of the entire system (meaning, work in one area may affect another) takes a body worker's practice to the next level.

 

This book allows the practitioner to gain an understanding of Morales Method® Core Integration, a form of Structural Integration. Readers will gain:

  • An understanding for body reading and assessment tools used in Structural Integration.

  • Hands on myo-fascial palpation and work techniques to understand working with myo-fascia.

  • Knowledge of the Morales Method® Core Integration series that will help you learn how to create a Structural Integration series and apply the body reading tools via the myo-fascial bodywork techniques taught.
