Experiencing Structural Bodywork sessions

We either "invite" the tissue towards a desired position or "challenge"it against the movement so the tissue actively and locally lengthens and releases. In Thai massage they do passive "pin-and-stretch" type of techniques and static pressures. In Structural Bodywork we instruct and engage the client to move actively towards a new place whilst the therapist is performing deep strokes, either with assisted (going towards the movement) or pin-and-stretch strokes. Using fascia and functional anatomy knowledge to make meaningful and long lasting effects that will echo in the whole system after a process of 3, 5, or 7 sessions. 

Advanced bodywork to work with your structure using Structural Integration principles. Starting an unwinding process superficially in the person's "layering" to go deeper in the core sessions to then end superficially again, leaving the person empowered and with resources that have been imprinted in their tissue. 

Quality over quantity. It's not always a matter of solving a problem but to make the system move intelligent and adaptable. An efficient system can deal with the same load gracefully or expand to new health dimensions. 

UP on the front of the body.
DOWN on the back of the body to connect you with gravity and release the patterns stored throughout the years of loading the tissues with the way it happened and all the emotional and behavioral states. 

The memory of the tissues, sometimes traumatic (physical, emotional or spiritual), can then be released massively with ease and softness, presence, thanks to the sensitivity of Albert and his many resources. He will guide you through mobilizations whilst working on the tissue, respecting the person's wishes and boundaries to  "complete the job" gracefully to leave you in a renewed body that has learned how to walk freely.

Albert has studied, in relation to fascia and functional movement with the Anatomy Trains Structural Integration education program, completing the certification of Structural Bodywork. He has also completed successfully and implements the knowledge in his life and practice of the following advanced/extra workshops: Born to Walk, Walking the lines, Active Fascial Release (AFR), Fascial Fitness, Advanced approaches for the pelvis, hips and lower back with Tom Myers. Tom, James Earls and Michael Watson have been Alber's most relevant and references teachers/mentors.
