The Manupractic Institute
specializes in training in the following
styles of manual therapy:
Structural Integration is a method of deep manipulation of the connective tissues of the body. The intention is to create a system of postural restructuring and movement re-patterning in order to promote ease and balance in posture, with a corresponding effect on the mind.
The Ten Session Series is a sequence of ten one hour sessions, each emphasizing specific regions of the body. It is a process of re-organizing the body and re-patterning movement. The Ten Session Series is based on insights into anatomical, physiological and kinesthetic relationships with respect to the way a body relates to itself, and to the field of gravity.
Manupractic massage is an eclectic blend of techniques and principles from various disciplines, including Esalen massage, modern American massage techniques, Hawaiian lomi lomi massage and Thai yoga massage. Despite its varied roots, Manupractic massage can be distinguished by the type of strokes it uses to connect and unify the entire body. Another important aspect of this therapy is the approach taken toward each client as a whole person, not as separate parts to be manipulated. Unlike outcome goals in other forms of massage, the practitioner’s primary goal in this approach is not the removal of localized pain or tension, though this is typically accomplished. Instead, the aim is usually to induce deep relaxation, integrate mind and body, and enhance total body awareness.
