Further Training Info >

Working with the stimuli of touch this workshop offers advanced Spatial Medicine applications and energetic touch techniques effecting specifically targeted and deep fascial change. Designed to build on understanding of the fascia’s response to vibration, it provides you with greater confidence to use your hands and the dialogue of touch as tools to listen in with, support the tissue specific and effect both local and global change.

You will learn to re-regulate systemically to improve both form and function.

This workshop is experiential - you will learn through your own experience to then apply and infuse it into your professional field.

Communicating with Fascia is open to all body and mind orientated professionals looking to learn how to effect the fascial body through their hands. This work is a rehabilitation (re-able-habitation) at its deepest level.

Why Choose This Workshop?

Fascia is continuously responding to everything that we do, think and feel; to the emotional body and how we react and live in our world. It adapts to our habits and compensations that we operate under both consciously and unconsciously every day. It does not differentiate between a negative or positive action, it is simply wired to respond.

Learning to understand why and how this ongoing fascial response mechanism can create the physical limitations and conditions that we are living with today, guides you in confidence to use your hands as tools for conscious and targeted fascial response. The systemic applications which regulate the fascia system will support long-term physiological and psychosomatic change.
