Bodywork Quality and Touch Parameters
Bodywork approaches can be like ‘lenses’ that colour the practitioner’s perception of their client and ‘filter out’ out our ability to openly perceive what the energetic presence of the client is showing us. Without realising it, the practitioner can easily identify with his or her modality.
This is a ‘masculine’ (in energetic terms) quality like the seed approaching the egg. The seed approaches while the egg ‘is’ and resonates. The core information in the process is held by the egg. Without consciously listening to the nature of the egg (read the body) the seed (therapeutic approach) has no chance of entering the egg on a deeper level. The ‘wanting’ seed will bounce of the eggs membrane.
The conscious seed, however, does not feel a membrane, but only a state of embodied unity. When listening to the true nature and intent of the body, the treatment becomes very simple, while at the same time everything is possible. Every single style of bodywork, healing and even coaching can be brought back to just 8 simple parameters. Carrying these parameters at the core of your practice, allows any modality to unfold in a process of helping the client to remember.

Five Elements Applied to Bodywork
The Daoist Inner Alchemy Masters talk about occupying the body. To consciously be present and observe different densities of the physical and energetic bodies without being distracted by the structures that are present in these layers.
Nature uses the cycle of the elements as the emotions of the cosmos, to revitalise itself and express a continuous stream of endless abundance. Wood awakens, Fire expands, Earth sinks, Metal crystallizes, Water melts. All this can happen in any different density. From the bone structure to the most subtle layer of the aura. It requires developing sensitivity.
The Life Force Ritual is a series of movements that tell the creation story in the form of consciously shaped ancient symbols. Many therapists and bodywork teachers experience this as an enormous boost in their consciousness and sensitivity.

The Link Between Fascia, Etheric Vitality and the Triple Warmer Meridian
Fascia has lots of forms of physical appearance but it is by nature formless. The ‘huang’ for the Chi Kung Practitioner. The ‘Ether’ for the healer. The ‘Triple Warmer’ for the Shiatsu practitioner. Are they all so different, or just offering the same mysterious intelligence? Overcoming the need to solve is the key. Being aware that you do not know and staying fully present and open to receive the information when it is the right time. This represents one of the biggest challenges for a conscious bodywork practitioner….yet, it holds the greatest potential to develop unique healing abilities.
