CLASS DESCRIPTION: Stuck in a rut? Bored while you work? Or just working too hard? Then try rocking. In this course you’ll learn a technique as simple as it is useful: you create a tiny back and forth movement by mobilizing your knees and hips ever so slightly; that movement translates into a subtle but powerful undulation into the client’s tissues. Rocking can be done at any tempo and at any pressure – fast or slow, light or deep. And rocking can be integrated into whatever work you already do, from Swedish to deep tissue to myofascial. It causes a profound relaxation in your client, by soothing the autonomic nervous system – the same reason we rock babies when they are upset. The result is that deeper work becomes easier and more effective, and lighter work becomes more satisfying. At the same time, rocking reduces strain on your fingers and thumbs, and helps to keep your own body relaxed and engaged.
