The Rebalancing Bodywork Training is a self-transformational process, as well as a professional training in holistic bodywork. During the first year you will learn to systematically free the body from tensions and constrictions, so to allow the body itself to reorganize. This process brings more grace and ease of movement, a re-alignment of the posture and opens the door to stillness. You will begin to learn how to use your own body as an instrument for healing and growth. We are learning to work in a meditative way through touching and being touched. Through an energetic process to open the body and group sharing, the training can become a growth journey, during which the individual will find support in a loving and accepting atmosphere.
During the second year we will introduce the Neo Reichian Bodywork approach, awareness in movement, and deepen communication strategies while continuing to work with touch and completing the 10 session format.
In Rebalancing Training we draw from several modalities:
- Soft, deep tissue manipulation and fascia release. We are freeing tensions in the muscles, through deep, slow and skillful strokes, which are carried out with great ease.
- Joint Release. This is a mobilisation of the joints to remind the body of it’s grace in movement. Tensions and toxins which are held in the joints are released in this way.
- Breath and Energy Work
- Cranio Sacral Bodywork
- Body Awareness Training
The training is for people wanting to become fully trained therapists with a career in massage bodywork, and also for people who want a deep experience of self exploration.
Who is this Training for?
- Those who are looking for a complete and solid foundation to begin a career as a Rebalancing Practitioner.
- Masseurs and Therapists wishing to extend their skills.
- Those wishing to experience a process of self discovery, wishing to learn the art of touch and meditation with others who share similar aims.
