We invite you to join us – certify in KMI Structural Integration.
KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) is our most sophisticated application of Tom Myers’ Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians to manual therapy and movement education. Graduates are eligible for membership in IASI.
KMI is not only satisfying to your clients in terms changes you can make in their body posture and movement, it is also satisfying to you as a practitioner – KMI stimulates you intellectually, emotionally, and in the acquisition of technical skills for a career long love affair with your work.
The KMI protocol is a series of 12 deep bodywork sessions that work progressively through the entire body to promote balance, ease, and movement coordination – as well as a vivid and accurate self-image through kinesethetic perception.
We at KMI are equally dedicated to the art, science, and practical application of structural bodywork. KMI trains you in a wide vocabulary of touch and movement skills. KMI has emerged as a premier training in Structural Integration. Hundreds of practitioners across the Americas and Europe and Australia have been trained in KMI since the late ’90’s, with financially successful and spiritually satisfying practices.
The KMI training is the result of Tom’s 40-year practice in many cultures and clinical settings. KMI has evolved primarily from his training with Dr Ida Rolf, combined with ideas and practices from Dr Moshe Feldenkrais, Buckminster Fuller, European osteopathy, and many movement disciplines including martial arts, Continuum, contact improvisation, and Aston Patterning.
Grounded in the arts, evolution, embryology, anthropology, fascial research,and the emerging science of body plasticity, KMI offers a rich playground for self-discovery. KMI can enhance performance in sport or the arts, be coupled with personal training, yoga or Pilates, taken into more psychological or developmental directions, or obviously into injury and biomechanical restoration – KMI works in all these directions.
We at KMI are proud of our ‘open inquiry’ learning environment, where questions and debate are encouraged, all somatic modalities given credence and space, and various methods of learning respected. KMI gives you a dedication to old world craftsmanship and personal attention, coupled with 21st century electronic support for your learning.
