In this Workshop we shall explore theoretically and train the students to the role ANS Plays in the Rolfing process, and deepen and refine the use of touch to balance THE ANS in the context of the SI.
Content: The field of Structural Integration is increasingly informed by what we have come to understand about the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and how, through that system, experiences and trauma becomes embedded in the flesh. ANS responses can be accessed and modulated through specific styles of touch; and the greater our mastery of it, the more our work will support our clients’ personal evolution and transformation. In this 3 day course, students will:
- Reflect on the role of the SNA in the establishment of patterns and in transformation
- Learn to use touch to influence the ANS in the context of Rolfing® SI
- Track the effects of touch on the person’s structure and function
- Explore the role of touch from the psychobiological perspective
