Deep Bodywork was developed by Perry and Johanna Holloman over the past two decades at the Esalen Institute. They train practitioners in the art of moving with great sensitivity deep into the body’s soft tissues to revitalize chronically painful areas. This class is designed for professionals whose clients are dealing with chronic pain.
Every morning, Perry and Johanna will work with people suffering from chronic pain, to help teach students Deep Bodywork techniques.
Students will experience:
•How to assess a client’s pain and apply Deep Bodywork in the short and long term
•How to deal with the fear of pain that arises as they apply Deep Bodywork and how that can obscure a case
•How to guide clients through a healing crisis, which can last up to seventy-two hours after treatment, and can involve emotional as well as physical factors
Two types of participants are invited to this workshop: seasoned bodywork practitioners who wish to take their Deep Bodywork skills to the mastery level, and those who would like to participate as models. Models will be worked on each day by Perry and Johanna, and must have a chronic condition which is suitable for treatment with Deep Bodywork. Models should have experience receiving Deep Bodywork in some form. Space for models is limited; please e-mail Perry directly with information about your case at email@example.com.
