The course description on Skin and Bones that Jeffrey put together is all music to my ears. Here is the excerpt:
"At each moment in a structural integration session the practitioner must ask, "Where can I intervene that will make the greatest positive change for the whole person." At many moments in a structural integration session bones or skin are the most useful entry points to create positive change. Stiffness in bones and skin is often at the root of myofascial tension and holding. In this common situation treating skin or bones balances the mofascia. Skin is a huge organ comprising 12-15% of each person's body weight, while bones make up another 15-20%. Together these tissues are about 1/3 of out body weight. Improve your treatment effectiveness by learning to work with these large portions of the body.
Before they mineralized, all bones were either cartilage or membrane. In mature mineralized bone all or most of their original connective tissue fiber remains, and bones are therefore flexible. The large fiber content of mature bone is continuous with the rest of the body's connective tissue web.
Both bones and skin are surprisingly easy to treat, and there are interesting similarities in the treatment approaches used for these two tissue types. If bones are approached strongly they will act tough. When bones are approached with the right gentle approach, they change easily. Sometimes skin and bones are best treated directly, in other situations it is better to approach bones though selected other tissues. How to make these distinctions is taught in this course".
I must say, I am really looking forward to the course. Stay tuned and I may tell you how it went!
