Why Hellerwork Works


Hellerwork Structural Integration Works because we actively engage in the wider complexities of what it takes to be a well-functioning human being in modern life.
People experience remarkable changes in body structure, shape, movement, elimination of pain, improvements in sports performance, progression in work and career, evolution in body-mind connections, and many other levels of life. This brings more thorough and longer-lasting improvement.



Making Friends with Gravity. We live 24/7 in the earth's gravitational field. Gravity has a massive effect on how we rise up from the ground and self-organise within it's constant force.
A mis-aligned body will be pulled down and compressed, creating unnecessary wear and tear, pain and restriction, affecting all daily and specialised activties.
I work with you to restore and create true balance and dynamic posture, whole body alignment and movement that works WITH gravity.  


PHILIP_HURRING_Hellerwork_diaphragm.jpgRestoring Natural Breathing. Your breathing is a hugely repetitive coordination of muscle and tissue. Breathing habits built up over years will either have a positive or a destructve influence on body structure, movement, mood and body chemistry, as well as stamina and performance.
I work to correct many different patterns - anxiety driven upper-chest breathing, asthmatic patterns, hyperventilation, reduced breath capacity and collapsed upper body structures.
There is much confusion around what "good breathing" is, and the many breathing "techniques" that may or may not be useful for you. So, we will work together to restore natural and adaptable breathing that works for you.


connective_tissue.jpgIntelligent Re-organisation of Fascia. Fascia is the multi-layered 3-dimensional network of connective tissues that surrounds and supports all muscles, bones, organs, vessels, nerves, throughout the entire body.

Largely overlooked by medicine and most health modalities, fascia is made up of fluid, collagen, and elastin, it allows all other body parts to move properly and freely in relation to each other. Fascia forms ligaments and tendons that stabilise and hold us together, and large sheets and wrappings that organise the coordinated transmission of movement and force through the musculature.

Fascial_Fitness_GmbH_1.jpgThis Incredible Fascial Network adapts over time by rebuilding itself according to how we hold ourselves and move. Fascia is nourished by the movement of an integrated and balanced body structure, staying fluid and elastic where necessary, and strong and rigid in other areas requiring more stability.

But with injuries, stresses and strains from bad posture and breathing, unbalanced movement patterns, repetitive strain, over-excercising or being too sedentary, the fascial network will deteriorate as it tries to compensate. It will build more stability and contraction where there should be movement, glueing layers of moving tissues together and robbing musculature of it's ability to activate and release. Pain and stiffness increase while agility and energy decrease. This is even more pronounced in people post-surgery, where i find the effects on fascia are much deeper and wide-ranging.

Scientific research over decades confirms the importance of the fascia in movement and stabilisation, force transmission through the body, elastic recoil, generation of sensation through sensory nerve endings, in high performance sports, in healing and repairing - virtually all human functions.


PHILIP_HURRING_Hellerwork_reorganising_structure.pngEffectively Reshaping Body Structure and Movement.
 Your body is not like a building or solid compressional structure. Your bones float within the network of fascia, bearing weight and creating length and span. All other body parts need to be arranged in finely balanced tension around the bones, surrounded and supported by a dynamic fascial network, then moved by a coordination nervous system activity and muscular effort.
I work with you to create an integrated and agile body free of pain, restoring your fascial network to it's optimal state, bringing structural integrity and longevity.



carlo_neck_pain.JPGHumans are Really Good at Creating Habits especially bad body and movement habits that create compression and restriction, wear and tear, pain and early ageing. 
I'm often working with people in their 20's and 30's who already experience this decline. Left unchecked these people would fall further into discomfort and chronic pain, increasingly affecting physical prowess and agility, with negative outcomes for both body and mind ...

carlo_neck_release.JPG... working with people in their 40's and 50's and beyond, these restrictive and painful patterns generally have become far more advanced, affecting all aspects of life, work, and activities. 

To come out of this downward-spiral requires an intelligent unwinding and rebalancing of the entire physical body AND a re-evaluation of how you live in it and how you move. This can be likened to upgrading your hardware in order to install the latest software - we need both in order to make big improvements. 

I work with you to create so much more than just "good posture" - we want significant change in body shape, structural balance, movement and body awareness. Our job is to have everything moving harmoniously together, like a symphony orchestra or your favourite rock band playing in-time and in-tune to make awesome inspiring music. Then we apply that to your daily and specialised activities. 


PHILIP_HURRING_Hellerwork_reducing_pain.pngStrategically Reducing and Eliminating Pain.
 One of the more profound things we do is recognise and understand pain and discomfort, whether it be mild, recent, long term or chronic.
I am always looking far beyond simply relieving symptomatic pain. I will analyse then reorganise your body with you so that any accidents injuries or surgery are more fully resolved, and to enable you to stop generating painful symptoms through your own holding patterns and movement habits.

PHILIP_HURRING_Hellerwork_mindful_body.jpgDeepening Into the Mindful Body. Our life experiences, attitudes, emotions, desires and goals all strongly influence how we live and move in our physical bodies, and how we interact with the world around us.
Negative life experiences, stuff that happens beyond our control, accidents and injuries plus the nature of our default "inner dialogue" can all be very destructive.
In your sessions we take the opportunity to look deeper into these body-mind connections, to both resolve and clear the way for a renewed positive and inspired way of being.

Philip_Hurring_Hellerwork_7b.jpgSessions are Dedicated to Your Individual Requirements. Everyone is different. Some of my clients require more core stability, while others really need core release. Some seek relief from life's pressures and challenges, while others seek more energising input and a big wake-up call. 

So, for Remarkable Results we have to bring awareness to the various relationships of body  mind and movement, attitudes and outlook on life. Trying to change the physical body by itself isn't going to bring anywhere near the same results ...
