What Is KMI Structural Integration?
Kinesis Myofascial Integration is a strategic approach to bodywork that is a synthesis of the fascial work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, the movement insights of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and the whole-systems geometry of Buckminster Fuller as developed by Thomas Myers, author of Anatomy Trains. Ron Floyd, LMT has a unique approach to this work, using sensitive fascial unwinding techniques that work with the relationship between nerves, muscles and fascia. The nueral-muscular system dictates muscle length and powers our movement patterns. It is the myofascial system that gives us our shape and posture. Fascia is the thin, elastic wrapping around the muscles. It can both support and restrict our movement patterns. Many things determine our posture and the shape that we take in space: injury, surgery, imitating the way our parents or heroes move, repetitive activities in sports or work, emotions and attitudes all affect the way we move and hold our bodies. This patterning happens below our conscious a
