Summary of BASE Training

Relational Bodywork and Somatic Education™, BASE™, is for therapists and bodyworkers who want to deepen and broaden their skill and understanding of trauma and the body. This will be accomplished by hands-on practice, lecture and demonstrations with students. In BASE™ we look at how specific anatomical structures are impacted by autonomic dysregulation associated with incomplete flight, fight and tonic immobilization structurally, behaviorally and relationally, and how to help bring them back into resilience, flow and ease using hands-on interventions and somatic education (facilitating learning from within). The goal of this training is for you to become an effective and efficient attuned bodyworker/somatics practitioner working with clients who have been traumatized and have pain, syndromes, PTSD, relational problems, anxiety, etc.

Tracking/Attunement skills for practitioners who use little or no touch in their practices will find that their ability to track a client’s body will improve dramatically. Bodyworkers and other touch practitioners will refine their hands-on listening/tracking abilities with greater specificity.

Base training is conduct within a 1 year period broken down over a four modules
