Optimally, living bodies are moving expressions of vitality. Poor posture, on the other hand, the look and feel of being dragged down, collapsed, or slouched, betrays and interferes with this vitality and makes living a lot harder than it needs to be. The causes of poor posture are varied: they can be the mixed result of old injuries, everyday unnatural activities such as computer use and texting, mental and emotional stress, pain, and unconscious imitation of cultural and familial role models.
By aligning the body and teaching it efficient ways of releasing old habits and replacing them with new ones, Structural Integration changes how a person stands, moves and ultimately feels. The look and feel of being dragged down is replaced by a sense of lightness, verticality and upwardness. Posture is improved in a way that looks and feels natural and easy.
Talk to Jessica
“Every time I have had a session with Jessica Silver I felt like new person, taller, stronger, younger by 20 years…like a snake coming out from old skin! As a Cirque du Soleil performer with a lot physical demands on my body, Rolfing gives me huge benefits! I strongly recommend anyone to have it..”

For years I had chronic back pain that I thought was a result of working at a computer. After the 10 series with Jessica, I learned that pain is not something I have to live with. Her work not only resolved my back pain but lengthened my toes, helping me to feel more comfortable walking and moving in general.
I have tried many types of body work (physio, massage, shiatsu, chiropractic), and I have found Structural Integration to be the most effective. After 10 sessions, the effect had such a profound impact that after four years, I continue to come once a month, every month, as part of my commitment to maintaining the health of my spine. I find Jessica to be deeply committed to her work. The way she works reveals an immense care and concern that has made it easy to develop complete trust and to let g… Read more
