What is Hellerwork?

Hellerwork Structural Integration is an approach that incorporates three aspects to address pain in the body and release tension and stress. Deep tissue bodywork, somatic dialogue, and movement education are three aspects.

How does each aspect work?

Deep Connective Tissue Bodywork

Release the tension that currently exists in your connective tissue, and return your body systematically to an aligned position. This aspect of Hellerwork is a “hands-on” process in which Practitioners work with their hands to release tension in the fascia to stretch it back into its normal and more functionally optimal position. Releasing chronic tension allows the body to feel free and rested, producing what might be an uncommon – yet normal – state of well-being.

Movement Education

Become profoundly aware of your body and movement patterns, and as a result, discover easier and fuller ways of moving. The use of your body in common daily life activities – sitting, standing, walking, and reaching – will be addressed along with movement patterns in your favorite sports, hobbies, and other activities.

Self Awareness Dialogue

Become aware and more responsible for how your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs relate to the posture and overall health of your body. Learn how an attitude shift can expand your body’s health and your self-expression.

​What is Fascia?

Hellerwork Structural Integration specifically addresses the fascial system; Fascia is the body’s connective tissue, an interwoven system that provides a framework for our bones, muscles, organs, and blood vessels.

Fascia forms to function, so every movement you make affects how your framework is built it is also protective by nature; therefore, if you have an old injury that did not heal properly, your entire framework is affected by this compensation. Addressing this unique and complex system allows a “re-structuring” of this framework to improve overall physical alignment. This hands-on approach to your fascia allows the fascia to change and be “re-molded” to an optimal state. Clients notice less tension, increased energy, more fluidity and ease of movement, improved flexibility, increased energy, and overall improvement of well-being!
