When we encounter stress/trauma, if unresolved the energetic pattern or memory of this stress is held in the body tissues. A person’s energy or Life Force literally becomes locked into the Stress Pattern as though the original stress was still happening. This creates physical, emotional and psychological problems and prevents us fulfilling our potential in the present life situation.

The Central Channel course teaches you to identify and release 6 specific stress patterns, to let go of past traumas and future anxieties to become more functional in the present moment. This is a powerful tool to achieve new levels of health and freedom in the body and life.

Stuck in the Past  – Anxiety about the Future – Identity/Sexuality – Limiting Beliefs
Integration / Synthesis of Opposites – Structural Alignment
