Modern life can be extremely stressful, challenging and demanding.
This affects our health, our well-being and our state of mind.
We may feel its manifestations in various ways;
It may also affect our relationships with family and friends as we struggle to survive and endure the tests that life presents us and recycle the energy of our trauma.
Meet the psoas and vagus; Our physical and emotional tools for living in the 21st century
Scientists and medical professionals call stress one of the silent killers of our times. Finding ways to deal with and contain the challenges of modern living is becoming ever more important in our quest to improve our health and our well-being.
In this workshop we will meet the Psoas (muscle of the soul) and Vagus (nerve of well-being) and explore various ways and options of applying traditional Thai massage, Shiatsu and other techniques to work with these sometimes-un-tapped gifts that we have in our bodies. We will learn how to relax and release the Psoas and improve its range of movement, how to stimulate the Vagus nerve and work on its tonal elasticity. How to help our clients to move from “Fight or Flight” to “Rest and Digest”.
This course is for massage practitioners that want to treat people with cancer related trauma. Many of the tools can be used with other trauma's too. We will practice the joy of Thai massage and combine the forefront of western understanding of muscles, nerves, movement and fascia with traditions of Sen lines and energy distribution.
