The art of the hands on adjustment, is becoming a thing of the past. Let’s bring it back with more sensitivity, more acknowledgement and more consent. There is nothing more healing than touch. We see from the beginning of time, great healers using their hands to help energy flow. Research now confirms what we feel. It is proven that hugs, human connection, even holding hands can rapidly increase serotonin and oxytocin within the bloodstream. Humans are meant to be connected.

An adjustment given with proper stability can change the entire posture, allowing the student to be free. The adjustments focused on in this module will primarily be stability adjustments. We learn how to hold the skeletal structure and create grounding through the vector of the bones so that the student is empowered on their own to open. Once we get a sense of how to stabilize in all the various classes of poses, we will work on more opening or transforming assists that safely take the practitioner to the next level.
