Bartley Structural Integration

Structural Integration - Rolf Method is a powerful form of bodywork that restores, lengthens and reorganizes your connective tissue through manual bodywork and movement.

Free yourself (body and mind) be integrated. Get Integrated. Mission Statement : I empower people to make choices to support their natural alignment, performance and growth. Through Structural Integration you will make discoveries about your body’s full movement potential thereby putting yourself on a path of living a pain free, active and healthy life style. My straight-forward, relaxed and open approach sets the tone and atmosphere for each session, which is designed for the individual. My goal is to help you discover the ease and comfort in movement in your daily life. Offering the "classic" 10 series of Structural Integration created by Ida Rolf (see www.bartleybodyintegration for additional information) -Release chronic pain -Improve athletic performance -Obtain a sense of ease in your body -Relief of joint pain -Improve posture -Enhance body awareness Massage Each massage is unique to the client based on their needs. I often combine several of the below techniques. Therapeutic - Increases circulation Deep Tissue - Similar to therapeutic massage - Focus on deeper layers of the muscle tissue Myofascial – Deep and constant touch until a release is felt in the restricted area CranioSacral -regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using light touch to the skull, face, spine and pelvis.

Could Dance Be a Weapon All Over Again?

"But soon I started to obsess about the radical dance movement of the 1930s. Back then, protests and social justice were part of the fabric of modern dance as it met the moment of the Great Depression and the rise of authoritarianism. “The Dance Is a Weapon.” That was the title of the first recital of the New Dance Group, a socially minded collective formed in 1932."

Note to Dancers: ‘Drop Your Self-Consciousness’ and Get Into It

Perspective | In pain and rage, a protester approached police. And then he danced.

Dance as resistance. Dance as protest. The beauty and power of krumping. "Where demonstrators have gathered in Floyd’s name to decry racism and police brutality, the streets have become dance floors. Protesters are tapping into dance’s power as an act of rebellion as well as connection...."

How We Use Our Bodies to Navigate a Pandemic

“That feeling and control of where we are in space is important right now; dancers, through years of training and sensorial alertness, grasp this inherently. If this pandemic is teaching us anything, it is that we need to return to our bodies. Life is precious, and so is movement.”

Want To Feel Happier Today? Try Talking To A Stranger

I see this everyday, on the streets, in an elevator, at a restaurant.. not only are people missing an opportunity to connect with another human and witnessing the beauty of their surroundings. they are missing fully experiencing their bodies.

"Many of us tend to do just about anything to avoid conversation or even eye contact with strangers. And smartphones make it easier than ever to do that. A recent study found that phones can keep us from even exchanging brief smiles with people we meet in public places. But a body of research has shown that we might just be short-changing our own happiness by ignoring opportunities to connect with the people around us."

Born to Walk Barefoot

"What these findings suggest, in aggregate, is that what we wear on our feet shapes the way that we walk, and that nature would make a fine footwear"

"So, the message of the study would seem to be that people who have concerns about their balance or their knees but not their pedicures might consider sometimes walking barefoot"

The forgotten art of squatting is a revelation for bodies ruined by sitting

Squat in between sitting and standing during your day. Change positions - MOVE, don't save it all for the gym or "exercise" - Try adding this to your daily life.

"This is plainly true. In much of the developed world, resting is synonymous with sitting. We sit in desk chairs, eat from dining chairs, commute seated in cars or on trains, and then come home to watch Netflix from comfy couches. With brief respites for walking from one chair to another, or short intervals for frenzied exercise, we spend our days mostly sitting. This devotion to placing our backsides in chairs makes us an outlier, both globally and historically. In the past half century, epidemiologists have been forced to shift how they study movement patterns. In modern times, the sheer amount of sitting we do is a separate problem from the amount of exercise we get."

Movement meditation. Undulating through my day. Pilates is a form of exercise that explores the use of your body and mind. You cannot fully execute, or embody the movement without the other. They are dancing partners. #balance, #focus and #concentration are key.
