The series of 10 is a systematic series of bodywork treatments designed to treat the whole body
over the course of 10 sessions.

Structural Integration treatments, in series format, is a continuous process of opening, shifting,
unfolding, and organizing of the body segments and brings the client into an increased sense of
wholeness.  The time in-between sessions allows the body to integrate the new information or
changes that were experienced in the session.
