Structural Integration (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


With the continued growth and awareness of neuromyofascial and musculoskeletal dynamics, pain/dysfunction, and overall health and wellness, Structural Integration (SI) is poised to evolve from its cult and/or "it's that really painful stuff" status into a both publicly and medically recognized stand-alone therapy. Structural Integration: A Holistic Approach to Manual Therapy represents the vanguard of that evolution.

The authors acknowledge the past, highlight the present, and point the way to the future of structural integration and related approaches. Their writing is grounded in the vernacular of science and medicine, while still leaving room for the transformative nature of touch-based therapy included in case reports and practice-based evidence.

The carefully selected line-up of contributors includes SI practitioner, teachers, and thought leaders in fields of manual therapy, movement, and trauma.

In Structural Integration: A Holistic Approach to Manual Therapy the aim of the authors has been to build bridges between different schools and philosophies of SI, and between SI and other somatic/therapeutic/medical professions. The book should become a foundational text for all students and practitioners and those interested in this emerging client-centered therapy.

David Lesondak BCSI ATSI FST VMT FFT IAHE is a member of the allied health professional staff in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). He is a board-certified structural integrator, visceral manipulator, fascial stretch therapist, and more. His first book, Fascia: What it is and Why it Matters, now available in nine languages, led to his being asked to architect and edit the first-ever textbook on fascia designed for the medical and healthcare field - Fascia, Function, and Medical Applications. His most recent venture is the podcast BodyTalk with David Lesondak. Helping people recover their resilience and live a more pain-free life is at the heart of his clinical work. His personal need to understand why things work and why sometimes they don't drives his continuing search for the latest scientific knowledge and innovative approaches. Before entering the healthcare field in 1991 David's various career incarnations were in television, advertising and the funeral arts. These included a stint over more than a decade as a DJ on WYEP-FM in Pittsburgh. He maintains an avid interest in music and can be heard at Pittsburgh's singer/songwriter Open Mic scene.
