Standing on the shoulders of the great Dr. Ida P. Rolf and her incredible contributions to humanity.

“Go around the problem: get the system sufficiently resilient so that it is able to change, and it will change. It doesn’t have to be forced. It is that forcing that you will have to avoid at all costs”-Dr. Ida P. Rolf

Somassage ®

A full body massage treatment can be a good introduction to the principles of Structural Integration, or a great way to continue cultivating proprioceptive awareness after finishing the Soma® 11-Series

     I am a structural integrator. I help people align with gravity. I believe a body in balance can heal itself. I learned Soma Neuromuscular Integration® from a small group of incredibly skilled individuals, in a yurt, on a farm, in the foothills of Mt Rainier. Ida Rolf is my hero!

Your Questions Answered

Home: FAQ

What types of health insurance do you accept?

Not currently accepting insurance payments

Do I need a doctor’s referral?

While there are a few contraindicated conditions, (i.e. acute injury/recent surgery, deep vein thrombosis etc.) the benefits achieved through structural integration are almost universally applicable. When contraindications are present, we will seek the advice of your primary care physician. 

What do I wear?

Always mind your comfort level, however generally the recommended dress is the same thing you might wear to go swimming or underwear you’re comfortable being seen in, shorts, and sports bra or tube top for females and bare chest and shorts for males. 

What is the Soma Neuromuscular Integration 11-Series ?

For the greatest benefit, Soma Structural Integration® is best experienced as a series of sessions. This consists of 11-sessions that each address a specific part of the body, yet also work to balance the whole. Sessions are generally one to two weeks apart and approximately 1.5 to 2 hours in length. In addition to the actual bodywork, movement re-education, reading materials, journaling and other activities may be used. Furthermore, each session builds on the previous, so completing the 11-session series is important for receiving the most benefit. Often clients will notice changes from one appointment to the next, with their bodies often eager to receive the next session.

The Series


Focus: Releasing the tissue surrounding the rib cage and lengthen the lower back.

Results: A sense of lightness and well-being, a more upright posture and fuller deeper breathing.


Focus: The body’s foundation: lower legs and feet.

Results: A sense of being firmly grounded and in touch with reality.


Focus: The relationship between pelvis, rib cage and shoulder girdle.

Results: Expanded breathing, greater relaxation and more immediately available energy.

The Core Sessions

To bring about the most profound benefits of  work, we restructure, educate and enliven the center of your body: legs, pelvis, entire spine and muscles that support you from deep within.


Focus: Adjust and lengthen the center line, or core, that runs vertically through the body.

Results: Better balance and freedom of movement. Walking takes a fraction of the energy typically expended.


Focus: Release the muscles of the neck, face and head.

Results: More softened and relaxed appearance in the face, with increased self-reliance and personal power.

The Integrative Sessions

These final sessions are the key to the lasting “effects” of Soma Structural Integration®. By focusing largely on integration and connectivity, we allow your body-mind to fully “own” this new way of moving and being in the world.


Focus: Integrate first the lower, then the upper body in a new and more efficient manner.

Results: Less stress and increased energy as the body’s structure becomes better aligned with gravity.


Focus: Release and integrate the arms and shoulders

Results: A lighter experience of the arms, greater ease through the shoulders, an experience of more connection through the entire torso.


Focus: Integrate the whole body in a new and more efficient manner.

Results: Less stress and increased energy as the body’s structure becomes better aligned with gravity.
