Who we are

Structural Balance is the trading name of Angela Donovan BCSI(CM) who practises a form of Structural Integration called KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration), a hands-on technique that will re-balance, lighten and re-form your body’s soft tissue structure to correct postural patterns which cause strain.

Graduating in June 2012 from Kinesis UK (training company of Tom Myers author of Anatomy Trains and James Earls author of Born to Walk) and board certified with the International Association of Structural IntegratorsAngela has quickly established a good client base through referral only. She currently treats athletes, musicians, Pilates and Yoga enthusiasts and teachers, horse riders and  people with general postural complaints.  

Angela welcomes clients of all ages and abilities, including children. Whether you are looking for relief from injury or strain, wish to enhance your athletic career, correct a structural problem, improve your posture, or simply be more comfortable in your body; Structural Balance can help.

 "Angela Donovan is able to successfully mix her professional knowledge of structural anatomy with her amiable character. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Tony - a mechanical Engineer and keen cyclist"

What can KMI help with?

KMI re-forms tissue health by releasing old patterns and aligning the whole body.  It provokes ease of movement, greater balance, improved posture and enhanced physical performance. The effects are permanent and progressive.

KMI offers relief from many common ailments often caused by postural imbalances and compensations such as those listed below. 

  • Collapsed or high arches in feet
  • Plantar fasciitis / heel spurs
  • Leg length differences
  • Knee pain caused by misalignment
  • Sacroiliac pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Nerve pain such as Sciatica
  • Hip pain
  • Poor breath capacity or diaphragm movement
  • Poor posture, inability to sit/stand upright comfortably
  • Rounded sore shoulders / rotator cuff injuries / winged scapula
  • Forward head and neck posture
  • Vertebral compression
  • Poor flexibility
  • Golfers or tennis elbow
  • Fascial pain

Patients who receive KMI note the following benefits:

  • More graceful and fluid movement
  • Improved muscle efficiency, strength and resilience
  • Greater athletic performance
  • Correct posture easier to achieve and maintain
  • Greater breathing capacity
  • Reduced pain – either decreased or complete symptom relief
  • Feeling straighter and lighter
  • Appearing taller and slimmer
  • Heightened awareness of body connectivity and function
  • Release of old patterns and the ability to move forward in life

Who can KMI help?

  • Adults or all ages and abilities.
  • Children with postural problems. KMI can help to correct these before they become engrained into adult posture.
  • Athletes of all levels who seek to improve longevity of performance or reduce injury.
  • Musicians seeking relief from strain symptoms
  • Post surgery or trauma
  • Yoga, Pilates and dance enthusiasts
  • Those interested in Anatomy Trains and Tom Myers

Initial sessions will address tension felt in the superficial layers of your soft tissue.  Many clients will see symptoms reduced from this early stage, feeling lighter and freer.  The symptoms we experience often do not originate from the area we feel discomfort; the signals we receive indicate the area is under strain and asking for help.  This is where KMI is unique - it systematically unwinds the body to find the source of the symptom, removes the restriction and rebalances the structure “making posture and movement easier”
