After completing the KMI 12 series (or any kind of structural integration series for that matter) your body will continue to digest the information we have fed it for several months. Therefore, in general, it is a good idea to let your body do its digesting without the interference of further structural work.
So how long should you wait? Depending on your body type, it is a good rule of thumb to wait anywhere from 6 months to a year before getting more structural integration. If something were to crop up injury wise (tweaking something in a yoga class or at the gym, etc.), we can work on that with the drop-in sessions.
Following the 6-12 month digestive period, I recommend coming in for a follow up session to see where your posture and structure has landed. We can then discuss the Advanced Four Session Series.
What is the Advanced Four Series?
This is a series of four session geared towards people who have completed the KMI 12 series or another form of structural integration series. This further work is geared towards your specific gait and works with the fascia planes in a four dimensional aspect. For example, the Four Series would work the relationship between the superficial front line and the superficial back line while feeling for everything between those two connections.
The focus of session 1 is primarily on the waist down. We will investigate how the joints of the legs and feet are supporting your structure while walking and standing. The goal would be to free your legs where they need to be freed in order to ensure the joints work in unison with one another.
In session 2, more attention will be paid to your breath. This session will address the rib cage and your breathing patterns as well as how the organs glide over one another with relation to your diaphragm.
Session 3 addresses the arms and shoulders with regards to how the complex unit of the shoulder joint is working in relation to your rib cage. The shoulder can be linked from the head to the pelvis. Therefore, this session will address the health of the shoulders and arms by observing how they relate to your pelvis.
The final session is geared towards the head and spine. After the work of the previous three advanced sessions, it will be clearer to see how the joints, ligaments and fascial connections can contribute to the health of the spine and head. More intraoral work can be done, if needed.
