THE FOREMOST OF BOTH WESTERN AND EASTERN TECHNIQUES
The body responds to life experiences and emotions by creating cross-linking of the collagen fibres in the connective-tissue, like an armouring or defense mechanism to protect itself from further harm. This armouring continues long after in the body, holding the emotional origins and creating dysfunction. This can be felt like tension in the neck, back pain or stiff shoulders.
Every person has the ability to self heal and come back into homeostasis (balance). TAIYO Bodywork™ works with the natural healing blueprint of the body and helps facilitate this healing process by unlocking and encouraging the resolution of tension and stress. This is done through different unique techniques, working with both different tables as well as floorwork.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE RELEASE
Applied to the entire body through a soft towel, the connective tissue release method is a graceful three-step-stroke that gently unwinds the body, allowing more overall flexibilty, body awareness and releasing of heavy emotions.
It consists of a three-step process, that flows into one graceful spiralling movement;
First, there is focused connection between the practitioner’s forearm and the client’s body.
Second, there is an opening of the connective tissue while maintaining the connection.
Third, continuing the first two movements, the connective tissue is released with a unique spiraling motion.
Drawing from the Maori (New Zealand natives), this is vital to the TAIYO method. Differing from the traditional arm and handwork, the foot covers a larger area, and therefore connects and opens larger sections instead of individual strands
The footwork is extremely effective in reducing muscle soreness, creating more fluid movement, strengthening bone, lengthening the body and deeply grounding an individual.
Originating from Taoist Monks, this technique directly deals with unwinding and opening the abdominal area in a gentle manner. We have found that most of the deeper emotions can be accessed through the navel point. By unwinding the tissue and gently stimulating organ function the client has a tremendous opportunity to feel clearer, lighter more emotionally balanced.
