Responsive Bodywork Certification
Learn the basics of subtle body communication, as you attend to your clients’ needs through responsive touch. All bodywork therapists (of any modality) are welcome to deepen their tactile perceptive ability, increase sensitivity to inherent body rhythms, assist with ‘spontaneous tissue release’ through movement, and efficiently locate hidden sources of pain patterns. Much of this work is based on fine-tuning our tactile abilities to the higher frequencies of perception, to consciously discern what our hands are being ‘asked’ to do by the client’s body. We will uncover the mechanics behind what was previously thought of as mere intuition, and recognize the processes at work in order to respond appropriately.
