Sample text

We want our patient to know that they are being felt. When they feel this they can relax, let­ ting go of the fear that we might hurt or break them. When we work a line with our thumbs we lean into it with our bodyweight. The effort does not come from our thumbs. If it did we would soon wear out the joints. We lean our bodyweight through our arms and transfer it to our patient via our thumbs. Our arms are relatively straight but they are not locked at the elbows. Our thumbs are relatively straight but they too are not locked.

Traditional Chinese Medicine identifies six channels on the hands and arms. These relate to the heart and small intestines, the lungs and the colon and to two functional systems called ‘heart protector’ and ‘three heater’. Heart protector includes the pleural membranes sur­ rounding the heart and lungs while three heater is probably related to the transverse diaphragms and their involvement in the distribution of heat in the three main sections of the torso. In general terms it helps to imagine the arm lines connecting through myofascial continuities to the structures above and below the respiratory diaphragm.

Sometimes we will sense our patient’s relaxation deepen still further. We will hear the beginnings of a snore developing in their throat as a pattern of spontaneous movement ripples throughout their entire dreambody. In those brief moments the patient’s dreambody reorganises experiences held in its tensions and posture. When this happens it does not need to be talked about. When the dreambody resolves, it resolves entirely. References Chaitow L (2003) Modern Neuromuscular Techniques, Elsevier Science.
