The ART of Listening to the Body: Holistic Assessment, Treatment & Rehabilitation – 2 Days

Recommended Texts:

  1. Bridging the Gap in Health Care 1 – The Basics of Wholistic Assessment (BTG1), and/or
  2. Wholistic Integrated Assessment, a Teacher-Student Guide (WIA – 12 DVD set and manual)

Note: This is now available as a full online course – 16 hours of video material and the book included (click here to go to site)

This workshop can be made available for those who would like some extra tutorial and training on how to Assess, Treat & Rehabilitate clients in a more integrated and holistic way.  Keep in mind;

1) A symptomatic regional approach looks at the relationship between the tissues/pathology causing symptoms and the symptoms themselves.

2) A holistic approach looks at the relationship between everything else going on in a person’s being/life (spiritually, psychologically, energetically, physically, environmentally, past-present, etc) and the tissues/pathology causing symptoms (which I call the “WHAT ELSE”)

Whilst traditional biomedical education focuses on relationship 1), understanding relationship 2) requires a holistic integrated approach to uncover.   This workshop will demonstrates how to assess for clues identifying “WHAT ELSE” is present and show how this can be integrated with the tissues causing symptoms and thus help to understand, explain and more effectively treat the whole pattern of dysfunction (cause to effect), therby helping to restore more balance and well-being to the whole person.

We will explore how to make our techniques effective and to be able to apply them to tissue needs with deeper awareness of the inter-relationships between the various components of the whole.

It gives participants an opportunity to practically explore in a group setting some of the materials covered, especially in the 12 DVD set on Wholistic Integrated Assessment, A Teacher-Student Guide.

This workshop covers:
