Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) is a brand name for Structural Integration from the pioneering work of Dr Ida P Rolf and developed by Thomas Myers based on his book Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians. Bringing the work of both these highly regarded professionals ensures highly trained therapist an understanding of a whole body posture and movement patterning, by opening up the joints, correcting inhibited postural behaviours and opening up the breath. The techniques used in KMI are a series of superficial to deep bodywork sessions where the client participates by moving to promote release and retrain the affected muscles to unravel complex patterns caused from injury and misuse. KMI works best on chronic conditions and stops clients from returning for treatment on the same injury time after time.
KMI has been rebranded to ATSI - Anatomy Trains Structural Integration to coincide with the concept of Anatomy Trains.
