Body Poetry – free your spine

5-days Advanced Thai Massage Course with Till Heeg & friends
2018, December 8th-12th, ElementYoga, Berlin

„Look well to the spine for the cause of disease“ – Hippocrates

A Therapeutic Approach in Body Poetry
– Free your Spine and Activate your Organs

Thai Massage, Osteopathy and every approach of holistic body work is seeing the human being in an multidimensional way. This means, that a practitioner or therapist sees „pain“ only as one parameter of many for understanding the problematic or disfunction and the following treatment.

Still clients enter the treatment room with a certain „pain symptomatic“ which has to be seen and respected and if possible supported to be decreased or rectified. Many times that a patient comes to see a therapist or masseur, it is in direct or indirect relationship to the spine. Lower back pain, sciatica, slip disc, a stiff neck and heavy headache are just a few reasons.

As part of the skeletal system, the spine has a major roll, it is the axis of our body, supports and gives stability and at the same time ensures his mobility. A healthy, strong and agile spine is a sign of homeostasis, vitality and wellbeing.

The main focus in this 5 days Advanced Course is:

  • to re-establish mobility in all the different parts of the spine
  • understanding interrelationships of certain key muscles and lower back pain, how to palpate and release the tension within them, by direct techniques (Osteopathic and Thai Massage) or through Muscle Energy Technique (METs)
  • to work on the visceral system and learn about the relationship of the organs and the lumbar spine
  • understand the connection of the breathing mechanism, the heart and the cervical spine
  • the pearl necklace concept and the importance of releasing the Dura Mater

The wish is to go deep in techniques, learn and understand more about the anatomical connections and work precise. Even more important is the spiritual and holistic approach, including meditation, movement, and the heart open to receive and give.

This is a Sunshine Network certificated Course
Why Body Poetry?

This fusion of Thai Massage and Osteopathy is inspired by great teachers, especially by David Lutt (co-founder of Osteothai), and has the wish to be holistic, authentic and creative, but not work. In its appearance it is light, flowing and has a aesthetic and rhythmic quality, like a dance, art or poetry.
