Maintaining the benefits of SI

A client asked me recently how to maintain the improvements obtained from a 10-series of structural integration. Here are my thoughts on that question, for your consideration. What do you do outside the studio to maintain the benefits of bodywork that you received?

  • Take care of your body’s physical structure.
    • Use a foam roller at home, 1-2x/week for 10-15 minutes
    • Stretch regularly
      • Or, do Yoga, Pilates, and/or Tai Chi
    • Walk most days
    • Avoid long periods of sitting; stand up every 20-30 minutes; move around if you can
    • Get massage or SI sessions when needed
  • Engage in general wellness.
    • Get enough sleep
    • Eat a healthy diet
    • Manage stress
      • Practice mindfulness or meditation; engage in hobbies and social activities, etc.
