Structure Bodywork & Musculoskeletal Therapy
Structure Bodywork (SB) and Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST) is a holistic remedial therapy that deals with the body’s structural integration and can be applied to many different health conditions.
To understand what SB and MST therapy can offer it’s important to first appreciate the role of our fascia. Our fascia consists of a complex network of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binding some structures together, while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other. The goal of SB and MST therapy then is to stretch, loosen and mobilise the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move freely and allow our bodies to return to normal function.
Structural Bodywork and Musculoskeletal Therapy works by unwinding strain patterns residing in the body’s locomotor system and restoring the body’s natural balance, alignment and length. SB and MST assessments aim to identify and unravel the story behind a client’s symptoms. In doing this – treatments are proactive rather than reactive as they actually treat the underlying cause of symptoms rather than the symptoms themselves. Hence, clients can enjoy long lasting and highly effective treatment benefits.
