Spiral Synergy™

Spiral Synergy is based upon the belief that all life forms have the natural, unconditional ability to self-heal. Often, through physical, emotional and or spiritual events we lose our connection with this ability. The distractions of everyday life blur our connection with self, with source and with the universe in which we exist. The self-healing capacity of the body works through a system of self-correcting reflexes. When these reflexes are engaged they continue to integrate change throughout the organism over several days.

 

Spirals are a universal pattern of energy as expressed in such diverse forms as multiple galaxies in outer space to the arrangement of the DNA in the inner spaces of our cells.

 

Synergy is derived from the Greek words sunergia (co-operation) and sunergus (working together). In synergistic relationships the sum of two or more energies has greater effect than individual energies acting alone.

Thus Spiral Synergy engages universal energy patterns to promote balance and ease in the body and the mind.

Spiral Synergy work is centered on cultivating and nurturing a state of consciousness that taps into the healing energy that exists in all things. When interacting with another we learn to create an environment of comfort and ease which facilitates the connection with the inner self. Through an affirming non-judgmental mindset, an atmosphere is created where dialog on many levels brings awareness to events, thought and beliefs that have been trapped in the body and which may no longer serve us in a productive way.

Methods of establishing connections with these patterns range from gentle physical touch to subtle energy field contact. The seminars comprising the Spiral Synergy training provide instruction and practice in developing self-awareness and engaging in a healing conversation with the body. In this conversation suppressed dysfunctional patterns can be explored, expressed and altered.

The Spiral Pattern

The Spiral pattern occurs in all facets of the natural world, from the currents of air and water circulation to the blooming of a rose blossom to the formation of the DNA structure in every cell of our bodies. Synergy is a means of working with rather than against other forces. Thus Spiral Synergy works with the patterns of nature to facilitate balance and ease.

Through a series of seminars the principles of Spiral Synergy are woven with techniques to address the major joints and areas of the body.

Spiral Synergy Overview (24 clock  hours)

This course introduces the basic principles, skills and techniques that are the foundation of the Spiral Synergy approach.  Participants develop their listening skills on physical, emotional and energetic levels.   Both practitioner and recipient explore patterns that may have become stuck in the body.  Through lecture and demonstration,  approaches for all major joints of the body will be reviewed.  Ample supervised practice time allows participants to learn to flow through a session listening to their intuitive inner voice.

 

SInce we can’t show all the movements and positions in one seminar, we created some additional seminars to explore the possibilities for each of the major areas of the body as outlined below.

Spiral Synergy for the Neck and Spine (16 clock hours)

As vertebrates the health of our spine is critical to our quality of life.  This course focuses on techniques for restoring balance and comfort to the different areas of the vertebral column and provides some quick and easy movements that can be incorporated into your daily routine to encourage and retain freedom of movement.  We will discuss approaches for kyphosis and scoliosis and practice movements to address these patterns.  The ribcage will also be addressed.

Spiral Synergy for the Shoulders and Arms  (16 clock hours)

The pectoral girdle is connected to the pelvis, ribcage, head and spine which means that stuck patterns released in the shoulders can affect everywhere else in the body.  A freely moveable and painless range of motion in the shoulders, arms and hands makes our everyday life easier on many levels.  We will discuss Spiral Synergy approaches to addressing carpal tunnel and thoracic  outlet.

Spiral Synergy for the Hips and Legs (16 clock hours)

The connections between our unencumbered ability to walk and stand and our self-esteem  are powerful.  Here we concentrate on the knees, legs, ankles and feet to help restore balance and comfort.  We address structures that affect hip movement such as the iliopsoas muscle and the femurs.  Approaches to addressing bunions and hammer toes and heel pain will be emphasized.
