Structural Integration Toronto – Dr Adam Leavens, RMT
Anatomy Trains Structural Integration (ATSI) is a form of manual therapy that targets the fascial system and aims to create balance in the body, relieve areas of tension and pain and improve movement patterns. Fascia is connective tissue and is designed to be pliable and move freely with muscles and bone. It can lose its pliability and become short, tight and more dense due to injury, repetitive strain and overuse patterns. ATSI consists of slow, deep stretching techniques combined with the client’s movement and use of breath to open these fascial restrictions.
