Hemberger Structural Integration Opens Office in Montclair
Dec 01, 2019 05:47AM
Hemberger Structural Integration is pleased to welcome patients at its new satellite office at Flowers Healing Arts, in Montclair. Structural Integration, a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education originally developed by Dr. Ida Rolf, restores the whole body’s posture and structure by manipulating the fascia.
Founder Ed Hemberger explains, “Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. It may sound insignificant, but when fascia is stressed, for example, in the foot or ankle, the body will compensate for the injured side in a way that creates unbalance in the body. This can lead to chronic pain.”
Structural Integration has been shown to significantly reduce chronic stress, increase flexibility, generate a feeling of lightness and fluidity, improve breathing capacity and allow for greater self-confidence. It is even used by professional athletes to break up scar tissue.
Appointments are available on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Out of network insurance may be accepted. Please contact Ed for details.
Location: 460 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair. For more information, call Ed at 973-462-3112, email [email protected] or visit HembergerStructuralIntegration.com.
