    Mr. Aragon,

    First off, thank you very much for taking time to make YouTube vids regarding Structural Integration.

    Have you had experience with acupuncture/acupressure as a healing modality for back pain/neck pain (ie. spine-related pain)? You say that ROLFing works better than any other modality for long-term healing of back pain, but I am making phenomenal progress with self-administered acupressure. I’ve only been using it for 4 days, and I have less pain, tension, and discomfort than I have in years.

    Just wondering what your experience has been, and whether any of your clients have gotten results with acupuncture/acupressure. If you prefer to correspond one-on-one about this, feel free to email me.

    Thank you!

      Hi Nina, my wife is an acupuncturist and so I do have great things to say regarding the effectiveness of acupuncture with all types of musculo-skeletal challenges. That said, when acupuncture doesn’t work, my wife is able to refer her clients to me. The challenge with acupuncture is that it does not change the body structure and therefore the forces acting to create whatever event is causing the chronic back pain. If the injury is truly temporary or based in, say adrenal fatigue, for example, then acupuncture and herbs will work well. If it is the result of long term structural imbalance, the structure needs to be changed. Most of the clients who “end up” in my office have “tried everything”. They have a problem that nothing else has solved otherwise they wouldn’t be in my office. That doesn’t mean that other things are ineffective- merely that Structural Integration, at minimum, helps those who cant find resolution with other modalities. Add to that its effectiveness in just about ALL other situations involving back pain (there are some like unresponsive sciatica that pretty much nothing helps) and that is why I made that statement.
