Structural Integration is a type of bodywork originally developed by Ida P. Rolf 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.
Fascia is designed to be elastic and move freely with muscles and bones. Injury, stress, work-related repetitive movements and the effects of aging can cause fascia to lose its elasticity and become shorter, tighter, and denser. Tightened fascia pulls our muscles and skeleton out of proper alignment and posture, which can cause pain, discomfort, and fatigue.
Structural Integration works to lengthen, stretch, and soften this tissue to restore postural balance, ease of movement, and a feeling of being more at home in your own body. It is practiced in an organized series of sessions or individual sessions within a framework that is designed to restore postural balance by aligning and integrating the body in gravity.
Save when you commit to a ten series and pay $1800 for all ten, a savings of $20 per session. *Gratuities are not accepted for this service.

What inspired you to pursue this line of work? While attending esthetic school I had an allergic reaction that triggered a severe form of acne. My struggle over the ensuing years became my forte in helping others with the disorder.
How do you define success? A happy client!
Are you involved with any community/charitable organizations?
I am involved with Credit for Life, which is an organization that helps high school seniors prepare for life’s financial realities, and the Weymouth Career Fair. I became an esthetician at the age of 18 and love to help young people realize their potential and give them the advice and resources that I didn’t have available in my youth. These are wonderful programs that do just that.
Anything new and exciting on the horizon for 2016? Oasis is located in the center of a medical community that includes a cancer center. I think it makes sense to serve clients who need a healing touch the most. I have hired a therapist trained in oncology and lymphedema massage and by this Spring all Oasis technicians will be trained in safe practice for oncology.
