Postural Integration® (PI) was developed at the end of the 1960 by Jack Painter, Ph.D.,(1933-2010) a former professor of philosophy and psychology at the University of Miami. From his own personal experience and his work with clients, he saw the necessity to synthesize the forces of at least three important therapeutic traditions : Reichian therapy, Rolfing and Gestalt. Postural Integration is probably one of the most complete (holistic and integrative) approaches to human development that exist. Come and experience the power… Energetic Integration® (EI) was developed in the 1980’s as an independent work modality. Focussing on an energetic cycle, developed by Dr. Painter individuals are helped to move forward in life. This approach teaches a lot of “what life is all about”. PI & EI together integrate, cognitive, emotional, symbolical and physical interactions as well as the art of an individual to act and be in his/her psychosocial context. 


Postural Integration® is a process in which myo-fascial tensions are deeply released and the way your body “holds” itself (“posture”) is transformed. Your posture tells a lot about who you are and what and how you lived in the past…Through simultaneous work with breath, movement, energy and interpersonal relationship in different body parts and in relationship to each other and the environment, you become conscious of the way you hinder yourself to live a full and satisfying life. By de-blocking energy and freeing emotions and thoughts, you come into a positive stream. You find out how your body and feelings are an important thread towards change in your life. People who have experienced this work, testify they become more alive, powerful, joyful, courageous… Postural (& Energetic) Integration® are ultimately creative and pleasurable ways to experience the full creativity, dynamism and joy of your own life-force.
