Sensing & Releasing Emotional Shock – Part 1
Arlene Dijamco MD & James Gaydos DO



Join us for a refreshing take on osteopathy. You’ve learned how to sense bone, fluid, and membrane. Let’s expand on those skills to tend to yet another vital dimension of health: the emotional body.

Both conscious and subconscious patterns of emotional trauma can be felt in the body’s tissues as structural associations. Stuck or unprocessed emotional and thought patterns contribute to both acute and chronic somatic and visceral dysfunctions.

Classically, osteopaths are taught to perceive the various strain patterns in bone, fluid, and membrane. This course will help you sense the emotional dimensions safely and integrate them into the osteopathic treatment.

When appropriate, the “stuck” emotional and thought patterns can also be brought to the surface with “patient collaboration,” providing a fulcrum of sorts to aid in the release of the somatic, visceral, emotional, and thought disturbances.

By addressing these additional dimensions in our work, we can help patients access a greater depth of healing and speed up the treatment process as well. 

PREREQUISITES: Osteopaths and osteopathic practitioners with training and experience in cranial osteopathy and/ or biodynamics.

Early-bird registration for Part 1 ends July 12th.
