technique helps you to find your true self, to find your centre

Integration opened up tensions held in my lower ribs and lower abdomen
and as a result my resonance centres are much more open, available and
A lot of emotional life tensions can be held in the upper chest and the
release of them allows new emotions and material to come in.
Actors could benefit from S.I. in terms of working on the mask of the
face, the space needed in the mouth and the lift of the soft palate. As
a result the sounds actors can create are much fuller and varied.
The technique helps you to find your true self, to find your centre and
to know where your core is as opposed to your character’s, as opposed
to the critic’s opinion. I know how far I can go and I can get my
centre back. My work is much more solid, and not as frightening.
I was drawn to the sessions because it was a completely integral experience.
I felt that my thoughts, my feelings and where I was physically were of
equal importance. I felt I did not need to hide anything; I instantly
had this instinct that everything was there to see.
Lucinda addressed not only my body and the way it works, but my body and
the person I am. Beyond that, she addressed the person in connection with
the energy of the universe and the things around me, as well as what I
receive from other people and the environment, like the trees, the air,
the connection with my feet and the earth. This is the language of actors.
Through the sessions, with her perception, compassion, and with a very
attentive attention to the detail, Lucinda guided me to where my strengths
are, where my body is full of life and full of creative possibilities.
Whether a beginner or a working professional actor, I recommend S.I. as
part of the training.”

foot pain that I had forever is completely gone! My lower back pain, that
prevented me to do so many things, is now gone! I've started to eat better
and my headaches and nausea are gone. Now I can take big breaths, which
I could never do before. I had never realized that my breathing was constricted.
After the sessions I was all opened up. This is really good and it's lasting.
I loved the experience.”
had results at all levels; physical, psychological and emotional. Skiing
has become extremely pleasant, so much fun. My friends have noticed that
my skiing has improved."

few days after session five I was in a hurry -I had to rush to the bank-
my legs were running freely without effort, as if by themselves. It's
a tremendous difference. I loved the experience. I find all kinds of reasons
at work to stand up and walk, just to feel the new ease and pleasure I
experience while walking.”

liked the experience very much. I like my body, it is full of life. My
aikido has improved. I was at a party two days ago and I noticed only
one other person who sat straight, naturally, with ease, as I do now.”
