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.
