Abstract Although we may consider ourselves therapists of the body, we are more so facilitators and educators of change in human lives and living according to the lineage of structural integration (SI). This article opens discussion and awareness of SI practitioners’ impact as facilitators of change using some of the learning models in adult education. Learning models chosen for the purposes of this paper and affiliation to the SI model include critical reflection and thinking, self-directed learning, and transformational learning. We have the ability to guide our clients toward autonomy and self- realization by our own awareness of concepts, including those mentioned above in conjunction with fascial re-patterning. The outcome of this shift in definition for an SI practitioner from therapist to facilitator creates ease, grace, and breadth in our work.
