Trauma and massage

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 health and well-being. In this Trauma and massage workshop, the therapist will meet 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. The therapist 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 and how to help clients to move from “Fight or Flight” to “Rest and Digest”.
