Body Harmony is a continually evolving system that encompasses many aspects of bodywork. As an open system of treatment, it represents a philosophy that takes into account all aspects of the client: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Body Harmony sees the client, not the practitioner, as the true source of healing and their way as the path to that healing. A session typically begins with a discussion of the client's issues and goals incorporating the "Equation", which includes the client, the practitioner, the environment and reactions. The client is observed both still and in motion, so that an analysis can be made of body posture, movement and functions, relevant to the goals set by them. By listening to the body and following each person's unique path, Body Harmony allows the body to unwind and release past traumas.
Body Harmony can release stress and tension, relieve aches and pains and restore natural body movement to improve function, posture and presentation. It can accelerate physical and emotional healing and resolve issues held in the body to allow enhanced health, harmony, vitality and communication, increased success and prosperity and improved interpersonal relationships. People using Body Harmony for healing experience a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing, clarity, peace, a sense of being in control, and increased awareness.
Some of the illnesses that can be aided with Body Harmony treatment include:
Headaches and migraines
Back/shoulder/neck pain or injury
Jaw dysfunctions (TMJ)
Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
Limited range of motion
Poor blood/lymph circulation
Stress and anxiety
During a session of Body Harmony — which lasts for one to one and a half hours—the body structure, function and alignment will be discussed and assessed. The client may not be aware of what the body is displaying but the practitioner has been trained to see these changes and understand this unique language. A body harmony session will generally progress to hands-on work on the treatment table, for which the client remains fully clothed so that treatment is non-invasive. Body Harmony complements any other therapeutic modalities and psycho spiritual therapies.
