What IS Structural Integration Bodywork? 

Unlike massage therapy, which concentrates on working the body's muscles, structural integration focuses on therapeutically working the body's fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds your bones, organs, and muscles, and gives your muscles their shape....for better or for worse.  With life taking a constant toll on our fascia through the constant rigors of gravity, injuries, and repetitive movement (to all of you who spend too much time hunched over your laptops), over time, our fascia shortens and tightens, causing misalignments which lead to us experiencing pain.  The Strutural Integrationist's job consists of assessing your body's alignment, movement, and restrictions, and then physically working your fascia, lenthening or shortening the tissues as necessary, in order to help you put your body back into balance.   

Do YOU need Structural Integration Bodywork?  

Do you wake up in pain in the mornings? Do you feel like the same old sore points never go away? Do you have a repetitive stress injury? Do you want to be able to move without restrictions? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then your Structural Integrationist can help!


About Dan Cox, LMT, Structural Integrationist

In 1996, after a long career in the whitewater boating industry, Dan Cox changed course and followed his passion for anatomy and physiology to the renowned Utah College of Massage Therapy. In 1998, after graduating with honors, Dan returned to Oregon, began to practice, and soon realized that his education was only just beginning; dissatisfied with the results of traditional massage therapy, he went back to school for ​​​​Structural Integration Bodywork, and has been honing his craft ever since.

​Dan lives, works, and plays in beautiful Astoria, Oregon with his wife, Kate, and their long-haired dachshund, Gus. When he is not working with clients, he can be found sailing, kayaking, rowing, hiking, hosting friends and family, and working on their century-old house.  ​

"Dan is a skilled craftsman in the Structural Integration world. His knowledge of the neuro, muscle skeletal system surpasses that of most in the medical field.  Dan is able to apply his knowledge in the clinical setting directly to promote healing and help create structural balance. As an endurance athlete, I believe Dan's work has been an integral part in my every day training and to my success on race day."
