with Phil Young
The foremost Polarity teacher of Energy Structural work and author of Polarity Therapy - Energy Structure and Function
Find out how the pain and discomfort of structural misalignment can be treated using energy techniques that support and maintain changes in both the physical and emotional body. 5 DAY WORKSHOP
Understanding the energy of the human nervous system and how it becomes unbalanced enables us to make major shifts in the body’s ability to release pain and tension and increase organ function.
Our basic instincts are hardwired into our nervous system along with learned behaviours and emotional distress. Freeing the energy of the nervous system allows for transformation and the potential for ‘re-wiring’ that can lead to long term change. 2 DAY WORKSHOP
OSTEOPATHIC FUNCTIONAL TECHNIQUE
All clinical examinations whether done by a physiotherapist, osteopath, or massage therapist usually include some form of range of motion test. These tests look at the body's ability to move in 3 dimensional space i.e. can the client bend forward/backward, twist left/right, sidebend left/right and can they shift left/right, forward/back and up/down. Normally, the various range of motion tests simply establish a baseline against which to evaluate therapeutic progress. What was realised by American osteopaths in the mid to late 1950s was that these test themselves, when used in a unique way, constitute an actual treatment methodology which has become known as "osteopathic functional technique," this gentle indirect action technique works by finding and then combining the point of maximum ease in each of the 6 different ranges of motion that are available to the human body.
In essence the technique is concerned with creating a deep and profound sense of ease and comfort in the clients body. Functional technique is invaluable in acute and hyper acute cases where there is significant inflammation and where general manipulation is contra-indicated and the method can also succeed in chronic cases where other approaches have failed. We will explore both the "balance and hold" and "dynamic" methods. A study of functional technique will increase your palpation skills and abilities as well as enhance your therapeutic repertoire. 1 DAY WORKSHOP
The body is not only designed to move it actually enjoys moving. When we are tense or stressed the body tightens, restricting its natural movement capabilities and inherent rhythm. As a result we feel ill at ease.
A RaJas session is designed to move the body at its natural frequencies to unlock tension and holding patterns in the muscles and to stimulate the flow of Prana or life energy .
So often when people experience chronic pain in a part of their body they immobilize that part of the body as a defense. As a result more and more complex layers of immobility are set up with accompanying anxiety. The mind is afraid of movement and the body has ‘forgotten’ how to move. Reminding the body of its movement capabilities is essential to healing. Not only does rhythmic movement increase mobility, it encourages the release of tension and holding to encourage better circulation, thus enabling the body to carry away held toxins into the area so any inhibition of the healing process is cleared.
This workshop introduces sophisticated modes of harmonic technique on the body. The use of tension and compression coupled with oscillatory body movement is explored in depth and these tools are then used therapeutically on various body parts. You will learn how to induce different levels of harmonic vibration and movement through the body in order to re-establish its natural frequencies and ease, as well as profoundly influencing the centrifugal energy flows. Drawing on the work of the founder of Polarity Therapy Dr Randolph Stone DO ND as well as that of Dr Robert Fulford DO and Eyal Ledermann DO, the work includes an extensive exploration of the concepts of tension and compression adapted from the tensegrity concepts of scientist and philosopher R. Buckminster Fuller. 1 DAY WORKSHOP
