wholistically and is a deeply relaxing and restorative treatment, which heals not only the body but also addresses blockages in the energy system, forming an energetic grid on the body to realign the flow of chi.

Weekend course

Fluid Bodywork has its roots in a technique called ‘Shifting’ and foremost in ‘Trager’ a comprehensive method developed by Dr Milton Trager. It is a rhythmic, flowing rocking technique of the whole body, which is applied simultaneously with pressure point work and short deep tissue strokes. Fluid Bodywork facilitates deep relaxation of the Bodymind and aims to break up neuromuscular holding patterns, while rocking the client into a freer and lighter feeling. This workshop is suitable for anybody with an interest in touch and healing, the professional therapist and the inexperienced beginner. Fluid Bodywork is easily integrated in any other massage routine, is fun to practice and delicious to receive.

Something to inspire you:

Just one touch can change a world. As Milton Trager said, in effect, if you want to change, you have to have a new experience. Words refer to new experience. But touch is new experience.

Psychosomatic Bodywork- More than massage
Weekend coursebody shapes, body types, psychsomatic patterns

This course explores and identifies the connections between tensions in the myofascial layer of the body with attitudes, past experiences and mental patterns that we have developed and methods of releasing them.

You will learn about different character types and bodytypes, how they develop and their correlations. You will learn how to identify them in bodyreading, and how to best work with each body type to help the client to become aware of them and release them. We will address trauma and its effects on the body-mind.

As somatic patterns develop mostly in the pre-verbal stages of our development, informed bodywork is well suited to assist people in letting go of dysfunctional old patterns and facilitate change towards more choice and freedom in the body-mind. To work effectively and compassionately with the psychological aspects of the body, practitioners need to have experiences of their own holding patterns and their emotional content, so one part of the weekend will focus on experiencing your own embodied self.

We will work with body-reading, myofascial release techniques, the use of breath, energy- massage techniques, developing sensitivity and intuition, adequate communication/counseling techniques and the art of “giving space”. This course is for practitioners only.

Course fee: $ 320.00, 2 days 9 am- 4pm

Dates: May 3/4, 2014
