Deep Bodywork® and Cortical Field Reeducation®

Apr 07 - 14, 2017 Begins in 1 month
with Perry Holloman, Johanna Holloman, Melissa Krikorian & Laura Kunysz

Traditionally, deep tissue modalities have been practiced and taught with a singular focus on organizing the body’s connective tissues. Rarely are they taught with an emphasis on the relationship of the brain to the body’s structural components, supporting a deep exploration of body, mind, and soul. This workshop proposes to do just that, and to teach Deep Bodywork as a modality capable of re-organizing the mind’s relationship to the body’s structural elements.

The Healing Art of Deep Bodywork: Healing the Shoulder and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Dec 17 - 22, 2017 Begins in 9 months
with Perry Holloman & Johanna Holloman

Deep bodywork, practiced with great sensitivity, is one of the most effective healing modalities available to the bodywork practitioner. Through slowly opening the body’s deeper soft tissue layers, we connect the mind to normally unconscious "stuck" areas of the physical body, which can release enormous amounts of previously held energy. This energy then becomes available to support the body’s innate capacity to self-organize and self-heal, enabling practitioners to support clients in overcoming previously stubborn, seemingly intractable physical conditions.
