Course Details

Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development. We will explore and work with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel-good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection. As touch professionals we should be experts in negotiating boundaries and consent around touch.

As human beings we have needs and desires in many areas. We are however, often "programmed" so that we are not able to own these needs and desires. Often being told that we don’t deserve or not even allowed them. Many of us have learnt to disconnect from our needs and desires, getting to a place where we no longer know what we truly want. As a result, we often develop unconscious strategies for getting these needs met and, as they are not conscious, they can be manipulations. This lack of clarity in understanding and owning what we really want can result in difficult dynamics in our relationships not only with others but also ourselves and the world around us. When we are clear what our boundaries are we can start to move into conscious consent. This clarity allows for clean interactions between us and our patients and helps us communicate effectively with our colleagues, patients and peers.

We will start with the topics of voice and speaking your truth, and then we’ll go on to consider assertiveness. Power dynamics, personal space, culture, marginalization, intention, humor, and forgiveness in setting and maintaining boundaries. Finally, we will consider how trauma can alter a person’s ability to hold clear boundaries, or give real consent, and we will learn some quick and effective tools to model and encourage embodied consent with our patients.

This course offers a foundational part of how we can uphold our professional capacity when working with touch. It is relevant to any health professionals who touch their patients or clients.

Course Details

Myofascial release is a way of connecting to the body in a profound way. As a therapist, you will learn and experience ways to engage with the fascial tissue at the restriction or barrier, and learn to allow change, softening and releasing to happen. This physical and energetic communication between practitioner and client, and between the cells of the client’s own body, facilitate transformation and release of old patterns, toxins and beliefs that have held the body prisoner to pain and restrictive forces, sometimes for years.

This light, gentle, but profoundly effective technique will greatly enhance your skills as a bodyworker and give you powerful options in your work with clients. Even your awareness of your own somatic tension will increase, as you touch in to the wisdom of the body. If you have found myofascial release challenging in the past, this course will help you to feel confident as a practitioner and in communicating the benefits to your patients.

A trauma informed approach:
Anxiety, depression and trauma all have an effect on the body and the nervous system. Touch provides a clear and direct pathway to the adhesions, misfirings and crossed wires they create. It also offers the possibility to realign the Autonomic nervous system towards a neuroception of safety and establish an embodied sense of wholeness and health. Fascial Touch also gives access to holding patterns that, once recognized and acknowledged, can slow the speed of anxiety, the weight of depression and the immobility of trauma. Unwinding the fascial restrictions restores the essential movement of the being that dwells within the body.

This course will be dealing with the practical applications of guasha as myofascial work, and how to integrate guasha into a massage treatment.

It can also be helpful in treating types of inflammatory conditions, where fluid is getting stuck in certain areas of the body.

Some connections to the TCM acupuncture meridians and Eastern medicine point of view, will be discussed and incorporated.
