Postural Bodywork

One of the most exciting elements of Dr. Bergstrom’s postural work comes from his extensive experience utilizing Hellerwork. Hellerwork is a powerful system of somatic education and structural bodywork, based on the inseparability of body, mind, and spirit. Following Ida Rolf’s lineage of Structural Integration bodywork, Joseph Heller incorporated movement education, awareness and body-centered human development processes creating Hellerwork. Dr. Bergstrom trained with Joseph Heller in the 1980s as one of his early students. Through the Hellerwork series, the structural balance of your body is realized through the systematic release and reorganization of muscle and connective tissue using a variety of bodywork and awareness techniques. When your body comes into alignment within the field of gravity, chronic pain and tension dissipate. A comfortable sense of support replaces the stress and strain of carrying your body through life. This postural integration encourages you to make the connection between movement and body alignment and restores your body’s natural balance from the inside out. Movement education is incorporated to enhance fluidity and ease of motion as Dr. Bergstrom helps you develop a deeper awareness of your body and its expression in the world.
