SoundBody Therapy 2-Day Workshop

DESCRIPTION

  • SoundBody Therapy is a treatment protocol for registered massage therapists. This workshop is experiential, informative and easily incorporated into other treatment protocols.
  • It is a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands on practice.
  • Props, including a skeleton, are used to help therapists get a felt sense of the whole body structure (bones and space) and to reset muscle tone.
  • SoundBody Therapy is also a ‘self-care’ management system that is repeatable and effective. It is easily taught to patients, empowering them to understand their body, their pain and have the tools to address its imbalances. The community wellness workshops are called: Sensing Anatomy: Flesh, Bones and Space (3 hour workshops).

TOPICS

  • Whole Body Mapping sourced from 4 different systems – myofascial, meridian, polarity gravity lines and neurovascular and neurolymphatic points.
  • SoundBody Therapy: Sensing Anatomy: Bones, Space, Flesh. Hands-on strategies for assessment and treatment – landmarking bones and the spaces between them: upper and lower limbs, torso, pelvis, head and neck, jaw, teeth and gums.
  • Therapeutic application of these entry points on self and with a partner will be experienced, learned and repeated sitting, standing and lying.
  • SoundBody Therapy Techniques:
    • 2 point holding system for treatment.
    • Bilateral palpation for comparison helps therapist decide which system is most efficient for beginning the treatment.
    • 3 dimensional form: Whole body relationships – arcs, triangles, lines domes, bowls and weight.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this 2-day course the therapist will be able to demonstrate their ability to:

  1. Identify and work with four diverse whole body-mapping systems.
  2. Work with less effort to achieve a positive result with less resistance from the patient.
  3. Improve assessment time.
  4. Re-integrate an injured part back into the whole
  5. Re-integrate all parts of the body into the whole.
  6. Identify and work therapeutically with the 3 dimensional body.
  7. Affect alignment, balance, weight distribution and increase breath capacity.
  8. Stay curious as they work and engage their patient’s ability to sense changes as they take place.
  9. Apply techniques for therapist self care and to teach patients for home care.
  10. Release holding patterns in the body using very gentle and effective techniques.
