The Quiet Way – A Therapeutic Approach to Bodywork describes a therapeutic approach for holistic massage practitioners and bodyworkers working in cancer and palliative care, trauma care, or those with chronic health conditions, stress, anxiety, habitual responses or ancestral inheritance.
This CPD postgraduate training is focused on:
- refined practical exercises to develop self
- sophisticated practical exercises to develop an enquiry style of intuitive and listening palpation
- cultivated ideas on how to blend this approach with the range of massage techniques you are already familiar with
- adapting the therapy to suit the patient/client group you work with
We take time to explore sensory developmental techniques and space for reflection, discussion and sharing. We talk through the signs of symptoms of manifesting trauma, clinical and practical issues in cancer care and I can further adapt this aspect of the course for your specific patient/client needs.
We also take the time to explore how to prepare ourselves and the treatment space for the day ahead and review how we gather information during the initial consultation and the importance of reflective practice.
The training is over 4 days, in 2 blocks of 2 days with 3 to 4 weeks in between to give time for a small amount of case studies to be completed. There is short practical on the afternoon of the 4th day.
A comprehensive manual is included in the course.
The days are informal and expansive and limited in number to ensure individual attention.
Training dates for 2018 are currently booked at venues in Henley and Brighton and looking to expand into more centres over the year.
If you run a massage training school and have a group of therapists ready to begin their post graduate career, please contact me to discuss further.
