Tucker began his Orange County structural integration practice experience in two of the largest chiropractic clinics in Orange County until he was invited to join the Los Angeles Healing Arts Center (LAHAC) staff where he worked from 1995 through 1996. From 2003 to 2006 he worked on staff at The Center for Optimum Health, a nationally recognized healing arts center blending holistic and naturopathic modalities of healing with mainstream medicine. He currently maintains an office in Costa Mesa, CA where he practices Structural Integration Bodywork

In 1998 Tucker created The Structural Balancing Workshops (SBW), and began teaching students. SBW is a nationally accredited continuing education workshop teaching Structural Integration Bodywork to massage therapists and other soft tissue health care professionals.  Furthermore, it offers the highest level of continuing education credits available through the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). SBW is approved by the Bureau for Private Post-Secondary and Vocational Education, and the American Massage Therapy Association and is a favorite among massage schools in 19 states across the country.

About Structural Integration Bodywork

Structural Integration Bodywork helps to improve the body’s biomechanical functioning as a whole by continuously estimating specific examples of posture and form, rather than treating specific symptoms. At the level of local tissue, SIB increases soft-tissue pliability, releases adhesions between adjacent soft-tissue structures, and increases interstitial fluid flow. Generally, this type of bodywork improves bio mechanical organization leading to reductions in mechanical stress and muscle inflammation, a perception of improved bio mechanical efficiency and general coordination, and improvements in sensory processing. Limited preliminary evidence exists for improvements in neuro-motor coordination, sensory processing, and self-concept, and for reductions in state anxiety. Preliminary, small sample clinical studies with cerebral palsy, chronic musculo-skeletal pain, impaired balance, and chronic fatigue syndrome have reported improvements in gait, pain and range-of-motion, impaired balance, functional status, and well-being. Contraindications are thought to be the same as for massage.
