Somatic Acupressure Bodywork Sessions:
Overly contracted muscles and the muscle coverings, fascia, are the result of various stresses in life such as diet, lifestyle and emotional states. Over time, these tensions create the postures associated with aging. Bodywork pioneers such as Ida Rolf, Thomas Hanna and others in the 20th century discovered that these distortions of posture eventually cut off the blood and nerve circulation to the organs creating almost every disease state.
In Asia, it was discovered that there were trigger points located all over the body’s surface that release tension in the muscles and fascia. These pressure points, upon applied pressure to them, increase blood circulation and nerve impulses to all the organs. These points make up lines in the body that were erroneously translated as energy lines. A more correct understanding is that these lines are accessory blood and nerve vessels. Pressure on this trigger points, also known as acupressure or acupuncture points, in particular ways can drastically improve all functions of the body to promote vibrant health and dramatically facilitate healing with regular sessions.
If pressure is applied too strongly to the muscles and fascia, more tension is created. This is why all massage techniques do not release tension from the muscles.
Modern body work pioneers created methods to release the tension in the muscles and fascia. John utilizes traditional acupressure techniques along with modern bodywork methods to release tensions or muscle spasms in the body to improve physical and mental function of the body.
John employs assessment techniques from a system of diagnosis that he created called IDx Diagnosis® which combines visual and other methods of assessment from oriental medicines with a modern understanding of the organs and systems from modern biology. Postural diagnosis is also utilized that is based on prominent modern bodywork pioneers’ research and studies.
John has over 40 years of practical experience in offering body work sessions.
Somatic Qigong: Chinese Health Promoting Qigong combined with Somatic Exercises
Traditional Chinese health promoting exercises such as Qigong have been practiced for centuries as part of longevity practices for health and healing. Qigong is the foundation of all Chinese internal martial arts and health practices. It means “inner skill”. It works all of the body’s energetic pathways. It opens and closes all the body’s tissues (joints, muscles, connective tissues, internal organs, glands, blood vessels, lymphatic pumps, respiratory system, cerebrospinal system and brain) simultaneously to produce a powerful coordinated effect on the mind, body, and spirit. It alleviates chronic stress and pain, and increases the body’s strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. Qigong practice produces energy safely in a step by step fashion as it revitalizes and calms your heart and mind. A proficiency in these subtle exercises will give a student a lifetime of inner exploration.
In these sessions, John teaches sets of qigong suitable to a person’s condition along with An Mo Gong, self-massage, and somatic or body exercises to reverse muscle tensions and postural distortions that contribute to disease. The somatic exercises are from modern and contemporary body work pioneers and visionaries.
Regular sessions are recommended to slowly learn these powerful exercises to rejuvenate your health and rebalance the body and mind.
