During a Deep Bodywork session, clients may enter deep states of relaxation during which organismic re-organization and self-healing occurs. Practitioners can feel this re-organization as rhythmic pulsation and other subtle movements. Shifts in the depth, frequency, and quality of these phenomena can indicate important shifts in a client’s state of well-being. In this seminar, participants will be taught how to assess, support, and direct these rhythmic processes to help their work anchor and integrate into the framework of an overall session.
The therapeutic pulse is one of the most important phenomenon that can occur through the application of Deep Bodywork. A therapeutic pulse arises when a myofascial lesion is released, and fluid exchange re-establishes itself in that area. Because chi-energy is attracted to water and is abundant in the body’s fluids, the quality, depth, and frequency of a therapeutic pulse provide valuable information on the state of our clients. Time will be dedicated to sensing and directing therapeutic pulsations, maximizing their healing potential throughout the body.
Eric Moya, a senior teacher for the Upledger Institute, mental health counselor, and somatic practitioner, will teach skills of subtle palpation and release. We will also cover still-point induction, soft tissue release phenomena, and modifying energy and presence to match the tissues. This program represents an advanced level of
study, so previous massage experience is highly recommended.
