Fascial Unwinding and Energy Awareness Course

Tutor: Jan Trewartha BA (Hons.)

An intensive course designed to increase the practitioner’s ability to tune in to the client, perceive areas of restriction, elicit the causes through assessment of the client’s daily habits, and respond to the deeper subtleties of the client’s emotional and physical state using fascial unwinding as an effective tool. Through a careful combination of theory and practical, the therapist is taken to an increased level of awareness and ability which provides a knowledge-base suitable for addition to most therapeutic work.

The primary aim of this course is to develop the therapist’s understanding of the fascia and their ability to feel and release fascial restriction.  The energy work is included because Fascial Unwinding releases stagnant energy and the ability to be aware of, and clear the energy blockages enhances both assessment and treatment.
