Learn to rhythmically rock or pulse the body or an individual body parts; as a result the body spontaneously lets go of and releases holding patterns. Find the bodies own natural rhythm and work with this. Rebounding can be integrated into any bodywork treatment or used as a stand alone therapy. Rebounding can also be done clothed or undressed.
Use as:
• A diagnostic tool to treat and free up physical restrictions in the body.
• A self-corrective mechanism.
• A stand-alone treatment or part of a treatment.
• Can be done clothed.

Work from anywhere on the body:
• Sacrum and Torso.
• Shoulders and Arms.
• Legs and Feet.

Scar Tissue Release.

Learn in-depth myofascial techniques to treat the collagenous component of scar tissue. Learn to explore beyond the scar itself to palpate the damaged tissue. As a result of this course you will be able to reduce pain and improve function. Specific techniques release adhesions and scarring. Day 2 we will work on members of the public with surgical scars. We commonly treat:
• Caesarean Section.
• Hysterectomy.
• Appendicitis.
• Heart surgery.

The acquired skills can also be applied to scarring from any other surgery, including hip and knee replacements.

The aim of the treatment is to:
• Reduce pain and restriction.
• Reduce cording and dragging.
• Create better internal function.
• Reduce adhesions, both superficially and deep within the system.
• Restore nerve function. To include numbness, pain and sensitivity.
• Enhance movement of the surrounding tissues, to reduce pulling and sticking.

Scar Tissue Release:  2 days July 12th & 13th 2018 and May 20th & 21st 2019

Pre-requisite: Open to all bodywork professionals.

Advanced myofascial release diploma: Abdominal Scarring

The techniques used are light and gentle with the aim of improving function, condition and integration of scar tissue. As healing takes place after a surgical procedure or accident, different tissue layers adhere to one another as the body rushes to heal the wound. Scar work helps to gently release these adhesions to allow better function and movement in the scar and surrounding tissues.


Learn how to facilitate and experience myofascial unwinding. This is the spontaneous movement of the body or body part during an Myofascial Release treatment. This safe and effective technique releases restrictions and emotional holding patterns from the subconscious, therefore facilitating recovery.

Blown away today to watch a baby turn itself from breech to cephalic during myofascial release work at an awesome School of Bodywork study day. The mother was so much more comfortable after the baby turned and grinned from ear to ear. It was so gentle and permissive. Truly the baby chose to turn. Somehow the therapist merely held the space which enabled this. The change in the mother’s demeanour was profound from tense and experiencing chronic pain since 11/40 to smiling happy and comfortable. She told us the baby was moving big movements about 10 minutes into the treatment. The therapist’s hands were still. We could easily see the baby’s movements and all of us noticed the changed shape of her belly after the release. She was kind enough to let me palpate afterwards, already convinced her belly felt quite different at the top. It looked so gentle and led by the baby. I was in awe and still am.
