Description

Touch is emotional. Although bodyworkers primarily focus on the treatment of the soft tissue of the body, they are in fact treating the whole person and often encounter an expression of emotion and/or memories triggered by touch. In this home study course, learn how psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) validates the mind/body link so you can better support your clients and help them facilitate positive changes that last over time.

In this course, you will

  • identify the three levels of the human brain and how they each contribute to "body memory"
  • distinguish between psychological, physiological and structural tension in yourself and your clients.
  • identify the elements of fragmented feelings in your own and your client's experience.

Course Objectives

  1. Identify the three levels of the human brain and how they each contribute to “body memory.”
  2. Distinguish between psychological, physiological and structural tension in yourself and your clients.
  3. Identify the elements of fragmented feelings in your own and your client’s experience.

I felt that this course material to be a bit advanced and may be a bit out of the scope of massage therapy, although it was right up my alley! Personally, it is my belief that physiology and psychology go hand in hand and that our bodies reflect our feelings, thoughts, verbal expressions and actions. I loved the content and wish more people would read and grasp the information presented.

I found this course to be extremely interesting, but tougher to digest than most of the courses I've taken with Integrative Health. Sometimes the explanations or theories were written in a "too complex" way. I'm quite familiar with the subject matter, and have been interested in body mind for many years, but thought the material could have been simplified or easier to ingest especially for the average or newly licensed massage therapist. Just my opinion.
