The Phase 5 class presents practical, gentle release techniques that can seem almost magical in their effectiveness. Releases for psoas, pelvis, lumbars, coccyx, neck, shoulders, clavicle, ears, eyes, and jaw will be presented and practised.

Prerequisite: Phase 4 Ortho-Bionomy

In this class, students will:

  • Refine subtle palpatory listening skills
  • Clarify the capacity to more clearly track mental, emotional and physical aspects
  • Observe and work with tissue preferences in relationship to structural alignment
  • Reinforce the body’s wisdom, not the patient’s story lines
  • Detect mood in the tissue
  • Use internal state shifts to influence and interrupt habituated story lines and holding patterns. 

Fee: $430
Early bird fee: $380 if paid by 29/03/24

This class will be a co-teach with both Bruce Stark and Karen Sonter instructing.

  Trauma Resolution with Bruce Stark - Adelaide

Accessing the Resources for Integration There are many ways in which the physiological and emotional components of unresolved trauma can remain held within the body's tissues and nervous system. For some people there is an unsettling in their body which isn't able to access the usual easing and calming responses that we would experience in a session. Sometimes the resources of the body to address trauma aren't available resulting in an exaggeration of the symptoms or distress.
