Facilitated Movement tm is a healing modality that encompasses and integrates several healing entities. The basis for this work is garnered from Brain Therapy developed by Dr. Barry R. Gillespie. Brain Therapy joins craniosacral therapy with TMJ-dental and fascial bodywork techniques to allow the brain to move in its normal inherent motion. Facilitated Movement integrates Dr. Gillespie’s work with energy work and massage. It is a combination of modalities that will facilitate the body to heal itself by initiating movement and thereby release of restrictions in the fascial tissue.
Healing for the craniosacral system is addressed. The craniosacral system includes the bones of the skull and vertebrae, the brain and spinal cord, the cranial and spinal nerves, the meninges or connective tissue coverings and the cerebrospinal fluid. Restriction in the fascia or connective tissue can place strain on the craniosacral system resulting in impingement of cranial or spinal nerves or decreased flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Facilitated Movement helps to release the restrictions creating balance in the tissues.
Day 1: Consists of morning lecture and afternoon of practicing techniques on each other. It is difficult to feel structures and cranial rhythms on horses – practice on people allows for developing the feel and receiving feedback on your techniques.
Day 2: Review of the techniques, questions and answers. Practice on horses.
