I made a commitment to attend a certain amount of modules/courses this year and there I am back from the UK after attending two more courses back to back.
The first one was more on visceral manipulation, exploring the organs at a deeper level, attachments and learning to feel the nine layers beyond the skin. Each layer has a feel, and a depth. Each organ not only has a function and attachment but distinct features singling it out from the next. Connecting the liver to the shoulder to arthrosis and the greater omentum, other structures to the pelvis and the psoas muscle to the kidneys was one of the highlights of the course for me personally : )
The second course was more about deeper diagnostic techniques and learning how to listen to the body. Unconventional assessment techniques allowing the therapist to figure out whether an injury is purely mechanical or could be due to an organ. By inhibiting an organ,, a joint’s range of motion can improve (within the diagnostic phase) and then working with the body towards restrictions can release a joint’s restriction into full range of motion.
I bow to the beauty and complexity of the human body not only for the amazing vehicle we under estimate, but also to the ability to develop the deep sense of touch with the palm of the hand.
I look forward to incorporating these new techniques in sessions as the appropriate cases arise.
I’m also hoping to be able to introduce you not only to Australian bush flowers which I’ve been working with the past few years but to Orchid essences which I’m slowly building up into my practice. So please keep tuned for a wider range of essences in September.
Wishing you all a great summer.
