ABSTRACT Developed from thirty years of clinical observation, this work incorporates organizational principles from classic Rolfing® Structural Integration, Somatic Experiencing®, movement re-education, and craniosacral modalities. The ‘gesture’ is defined as the stored history of movement in response to life. The techniques presented identify tissue and movement patterns associated with both what is stuck and what is supporting homeostasis in the client’s body.  The intention of the work is  to re-establish, through touch and verbal cueing, natural resiliency in the autonomic nervous system and to quietly unravel gestures, associated structural patterns, and traumatic responses.
