Module 2 expands on and refines the foundational skills learned in Module 1. The focus of this module is learning how to find States of Balance in the fascia called Balanced Membranous Tension (BMT). Learning how to find BMT develops the skills to find other States of Balance present in the 3 models of cranial sacral therapy. We will continue to learn how to hydrate stuck fascia and balance it in a more advanced, predictable, and complete way. We will cover how to decompress and untwist bones, find the mid-lines of the joints and bring the resources (life force) back to injured areas so that our fascial interventions are much easier and more effective.
Working with Balanced Membranous Tension in Module 2 develops the skills to work efficiently with the fluid qualities of the fascia and is the precursor to relating to the WHOLE of the body through the Fluid Matrix and more dynamic States of Balance. You will leave class with knowledge, tools and experience which can be easily integrated into your Rolfing sessions.
We will focus on:
Arms and shoulder girdle, legs and pelvic girdle
1 hand working / 1 hand listening
Introduction to the fluid body - 2 hands listening
Balanced Membranous ( fascIal) Tension
Bones - interosseous relationships and intraosseous decompression
CRIAAR - structural and energetic responses to trauma
Connecting the girdles to the primary (axial) midline
Motion present - Inherent Motion as an assessment, therapeutic and integration
Deepening into Whole body Inherent Motion
Thomas is a faculty member of the Rolf Institute and has been a Rolfer for 30 years. He has studied craniosacral therapy since 1993 and has over 1200 hours of training in biodynamic cranial sacral therapy. Thomas has spent the last 20 years integrating this knowledge into the Rolfing paradigm and integrates this into all of his sessions and classes.
Gale has been a Rolfer for 26 years and has studied and practiced biodymamic cranial work for 21 years. She has assisted in all phases of the basic Rolfing training as well as other CE trainings. She loves the learning process and the challenges of tailoring her teaching to meet the various learning needs of students. She is open to questions and strives to create a safe, receptive learning environment.
Since its inception in 1971, The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration has been dedicated to bringing
Rolfing Structural Integration to the world. The headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, and international
offices in Europe, Brazil, Canada and Japan, are the only schools that certify Rolfers™ and Rolf
