Our body mirrors and reflects our life, being and inner world. Feelings, emotions and life experiences express themselves in the body and are memorised in the cells.
Touch is the forgotten language of love - it has a healing power that opens doors for your body to release, and discharge… In this work we use the magic of touch, as a way to access and explore the deeper aspects of our being. It is a holistic approach, embracing the physical sensing world of the body, our emotional felt experiences and our being-ness. Silence of Touch takes bodywork into the dimension of full embodiment of our lives, using the body as the doorway to the natural intelligence of our being. It is an exploration of love, that mysterious energy which fuels life - accepting and embracing what is, letting go of the fighting and struggle - trusting life and relaxing into its flow.
Recognising and understanding the connection between the inner emotional body and the physical body is part of the training. It is work, that touches us deeply and it is simply mind-blowing, to watch the puzzle pieces come together. This understanding gives us the awareness and the power, to change something in our lives. You meet yourself through touch. It is a journey into intimacy with yourself. Through sensitive touch, compassion and a still presence we learn, not only to hold our own space, but also to be a container for the people and clients we may accompany on their way.

As bodyworkers we are able to expand in our perception of reading a body-mind-system. In a safe and loving environment we learn to read the body, learn to have a perceptive gaze for the undercurrents in the body. This way we are able to help our clients become aware of and release old, unconscious or habitual feelings, thoughts, fears and belief systems.
In this training we explore Rebalancing Bodywork and Body Oriented Awareness. Specially developed techniques like Deep Tissue Massage, Joint Release and Conscious Touch. Essential Counselling and Perceptive Body reading are also a part of this work. We work through the body in sections, exploring functional anatomy, awareness through movement and the psychosomatic associations with our body.
This Rebalancing Training is suitable for people who want to deepen their understanding of the bodymind, learn to live with and through the body and learn the art of touch as a way of embodying life.
Anu ́s teaching contains Rebalancing and advanced bodywork at great depth, which is suitable for experienced bodyworkers, who are looking to rediscover working with the body in a new way or want to expand in their work.
This training provides a thorough foundation and understanding for Rebalancing Bodywork - the art of touch, Body Awareness and a combination of structural and intuitive massage techniques. We also explore the psychsomatic content as well as the 'personality' of different parts of the body. This training is divided into 12 modules of 3 days and within each module we explore a part of our body. Working it with our fingers and hands, learning techniques how to touch deeply and with awareness. Inquiring into the functionality of that part and our connection to it. How it relates to the rest of the body and through this exploration, generating awareness and deepening our ‘felt sense’. Understanding the connection between our emotional body and how emotional tensions manifest physiologically is a key.
You will get a thorough grounding and understanding of the Rebalancing Technique. It is an evolving art form that grows, expands and changes with your deepening understanding in the mystery of 'Touch' - this is the beauty of this work.
It integrates beautifully with other kinds of bodywork and touch based holistic approaches.
Being able to present indicates a state in which we are able to acknowledge reality. And not to represent a view that is characterized by filters and conditioning from the past. If we can cultivate the ability of Presence, more sensitivity and clarity develops. Presence means having the capacity to be non-reactive no matter what happens in that moment - then we are grounded in the perception of our body, our mind and our heart.
To 'explore' in the truest sense of the word - to question, to explore, to discover, to test and to want to know - means with a spiritual openness. The prerequisite for this is that we do not know and that we know that we do not know ... This attitude is beautiful because it implies that the solution sought, Resolution is ultimately in the client itself. We can thus assist and assist our clients in finding their own way through their own intelligence - and thus an organic, responsive response to every situation in life.
The art of feedback - giving and receiving feedback always means having a mindset that is open and ready to learn. It is important to learn the appropriate language to be able to accompany people on their journey. We learn to hold the space so that the client can find his own way - the solution that can find the answer within. Without us evaluating it, influencing with our attitude or with what we think.
There is nothing like movement for releasing tension!
Joint Release is an active technique that uses movement to release tension and holding in our bodymind. It induces deep relaxation and increases physical mobility. With Joint Release we can access the joints, nerve paths and corresponding muscles that cannot be reached with our fingers. This is a wonderful technique, that can easily be integrated with any kind of bodywork.
Joint Release is a play of holding on - and letting go!
A fluid container to ‘fall’ into.
It’s a tease, and an invitation…
a context, where we invite fluidness into the fixed.
A melt down - which brings held energy into a flow again.
This playful technique is a mix of 'Tragering' and Awareness through Movement.
Joint Release is very effective and takes people directly inwards. It also brings a lot of playfulness, humour and laughter into a session - it certainly moves energy, catches your attention creating aliveness and expansion.
Soft Meditative Touch - uses the 'felt' presence and warmth of our hands to access those inner energies and spaces our fingers cannot reach. Touching with awareness…
Conscious Touch is a silent way to meet the need to sort out and resolve the inner chaos that has accumulated within. It is a condensed moment of inner watching, of relaxed awareness, allowing the presence of another to anchor us through their touch. It is said again and again with amazement and wonder, how much happens simply through being touched and held in a non-doing space. Many inner issues and conflicts surface and dissolve. The body rests, regenerates and inwardly realigns, and inspiration returns. It is a compassionate retreat into our body and being, simple and profound.
This is a fantastic 3D Anatomy Learning System available for Mac & PC. It is what I use in the training. You can strip down the muscle layers, view muscle animations, the organs and nerve paths etc. It is best on an iPad and for taking into sessions and teaching. If anatomy interests you, I recommend it! And if it doesn’t, I recommend it to explore and get to know your body!
An awareness of our breathing is essential, because all tension reflects in the breath. Whenever we do anything, that requires physical effort, we hold the breath. Patanjali explores it in Yoga and Buddha created the amazing Vipassana Technique, which took many meditators beyond the known. The breath has much potential and if you observe it in your sessions, it reveals so much!
Breathing is one of the things to be looked after because it is one of the most important things.
If you are not breathing fully, you cannot live fully.
Then almost everywhere you will be withholding something, even in love. In talking even, you will be withholding. You will not communicate completely; something will always remain incomplete.
The breathing passage has a certain musculature around it, and if you have been breathing wrongly – and almost everybody is – then the musculature has become fixed. Now it will take many years to change it by your own effort, and it will be an unnecessary waste of time. Through deep massage, those muscles relax and then you can start again. But once you start breathing well don’t fall into the old habit again.
The body mirrors and reflects our life, our being and our inner world. Feelings, emotions and life experiences express themselves in the body and are memorised in the cells. If not perceived and met, they can become stagnant energy blocks, that can possibly later manifest as physical problems.
Bodyworkers are able to expand their perception of reading a body-mind-system. We do energy readings, structural readings and learn to have a perceptive gaze, reading the undercurrents in the body in a loving and non-judgemental way. We´re allowed, to see, how the physical expresses our psychological. Through this, we are able to help our clients to become aware of -and release - old, unconscious or habitual feelings, thoughts, fears and belief systems.
Recognising and understanding the connection between the inner emotional body and the physical body is part of this training. It is work, that touches us deeply and it is mind-blowing, to watch the puzzle pieces come together. This understanding gives us the awareness and the power to be able to change something in our lives.
As bodyworkers we are generators of body awareness. The body is a pure reflection of our inner world. It shows us and lets us know, where we are and what is going on. It also tells us, what is needed, when we have lost touch with the body.
