The first response to trauma is often protective. A part of the body is immobilised and buried to avoid emotional or physical pain. However, this means that the movements and posture are always distorted to avoid moving the buried area.
Emotional and developmental issues are often ‘stored’ in the body and can be liberated and processed through the body directly without having to re-experience the original pain. Many physical issues are the result of compensation for the immobilised area and the release of the trauma can frequently resolve chronic physical conditions too. The course will show:
- how to work with the Fascia to gently and safely help the hidden area to re-connect
- how bring the inner organs in that area into awareness and how to help them to initiate movement. and express themselves ‘in the first person’
- We will show how to help a client process trauma through movement without getting caught up in the historical story.
- How to use the Six Forms of Touch to help the client’s body-mind to re-integrate
