Tensegrity

Wikipedia describes tensegrity as a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension. In the human body, the bones are the isolated components in compression inside the three-dimensional fascial net of continuous tension.

This biostructure connects every structural cell of the body and holds the memory of all trauma back to conception. When standing, it holds all the structures up in space. Without it, our bodies would collapse like Jell-O.

When trauma such as birth compression, accidents or surgery alter this structure, its function can be compromised. As the effects of these traumas build up over a lifetime, patients look to us for answers.

We are just not dealing with pain issues but also organ health. For example, trauma can create craniosacral fascial strain in the lungs and respiratory system, causing pediatric asthma. Since the web touches every cell in every organ, strain can diminish the function of any organ.

Day-one therapy can mitigate the effects of birth trauma and reset this biostructure optimally for proper growth. When a toddler later experiences trauma, this biostructure can better withstand the negative effects of trauma. I named this “structural immunity,” a phenomenon discovered during the Lancaster infant research 10 years ago.
