Body Energy Therapies And Unlocking The Body’s Wisdom Cher Curshen, Expressive Arts Therapist (EXAT), Clinical Trauma Specialist, Therapeutic Touch (RP)
3 hour Training Applies to Certification - All Certification Streams
This workshop will explore how and why the use of body energy therapy techniques is an integral part of the healing journey for trauma survivors. Body energy therapies can facilitate the healing of dis-ease based on the feeling sense of the body, moving towards wholeness and balance. In somatic responses to trauma, the unconscious manifests itself as secondary body signals and responses that are body phenomena, often lying just below the surface of awareness. Body energy therapies open a person to ‘feel’ their way to a state of increased integration.
The use of body energy therapies towards the raising of consciousness is an important aspect of healing. Combining working examples with an experiential learning approach, participants will be introduced to a variety of body energy work processes which may include; Breath Work, Acupressure, Therapeutic Touch, Guided Visualization, Expressive Arts Therapy and EFT; all of which can raise body-mind awareness, unlock the body’s wisdom and enhance therapeutic relationship.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
A variety of body energy therapy modalities and techniques;
How Body Energy Therapies can empower trauma survivors in their own healing;
How Body Energy Therapies can be used to support healing and promote an awareness of the body-mind connection
