About this Event

The Psoas System and the Fear Reflec- An Integrative Approach:

The human body should not be regarded as an object to be fixed. Instead it is a self-organising, self-healing and bio-intelligent system that needs to be engaged in its entirety.

No other muscle system within the human body responds better to such an approach than the psoas muscle system, which often contributes prominently to lower back discomfort and restriction as well as groin and hip imbalance. The psoas muscles receive messages from the somatic as well as the autonomic nervous system, thus acting like a muscle as well as an organ.

Due to their location within the sympathetic neuro-core, the fibres of the psoas muscles are very susceptible to and strongly influenced by the nerve signals of the fear reflex. This reflex is an integral part of the human survival system. If this dimension is ignored during therapeutic intervention for lower back dysfunction, any attempts at directly accessing psoas fibres to release spasm and restriction will not only ‘backfire’ but will potentially exacerbate the contraction in the muscle fibres, thus worsening the condition.

Combining remedial massage techniques for lower back release with specific acupressure sequences as well as non-invasive techniques derived from Positional Release, Myofascial Release and Craniosacral therapy can provide an excellent integrative therapeutic approach to restoring balance within the psoas system and improving lower back functionality.

Presenter

Conny Pulvermacher:

Conny Pulvermacher has been a clinical practitioner, yoga teacher and holistic health educator for nearly twenty years. She holds qualifications in bodywork, nutrition and yoga, specialising in craniosacral therapy (biodynamic and structural). Conny has developed an integrative approach to therapeutic practice combining the non-invasive approach of craniosacral therapy with myofascial release, positional release, acupressure, kinesiology and remedial massage to facilitate the integration of experience at multiple levels. She structures nutritional advice and movement therapy as additional tools to empower clients with self-help ability within the rhythm of everyday life.

Conny is currently the organiser of and a teaching assistant in a three-year diploma training in Craniosacral therapy held in Sydney. She is also a committed meditation practitioner. In her therapeutic practice and her lifestyle she holds a deep core belief: mind and body are inextricably interwoven with each other. When this unity is supported holistically, the inherent health held within every metabolism can express itself much more successfully. The commitment to that belief expresses itself in every level of Conny’s therapeutic practice and teaching work.
