Spine Alignment & Body Intelligence

Neck and back pain are amongst the most common reasons for people seeking bodywork treatment. Misalignment of the spine and the associated pain and reduced mobility are often a result of underlying energetic restrictions and distortions in the soft tissue and in the energy system. The most effective and lasting way to address these symptoms is to address the underlying energetic patterns.

The Governing Vessel channel flows through the spine and represents the most primitive part of the energy system (along with Conception Vessel).  It is also a component of the Central Channel, the focus of Daoist and other ancient healing practices. The flow of these channels can become disrupted or compressed through stress, accumulating over a period of time as a web of misinformation and a range of symptoms – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual.

The Shiatsu ShinTai  approach taught in this workshop improves the flow of these channels and releases deeply held energetic patterns, helping the person connect with their own body intelligence to find their own alignment, space and ease.

We will be practicing bodywork techniques on each other and exercises to access our own inner call towards alignment.There are no forceful adjustments! 

Body Intelligence

You will also learn to access your own body intelligence through a part of the nervous system which monitors physical, emotional and spiritual alignment. As we connect with our inner guidance we start to make our own adjustments – posture becomes more functional, and we start to make choices around food, relationships and activities which move us towards alignment and healing.
