The Myofascial Energetic Release

MER Training is a powerful life transforming experience. You will learn the art and science of a Deep Bodywork, Assisted Stretches, Myofascial Unwinding, Joint Mobilization, Emotional Release and Awareness and much more. Throughout the training the aim for you is to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to give great work to your clients and to create a successful practice. There is a growing demand for mastering the art of working deeply in the body with skill and sensitivity. The capacity of deep bodywork to alleviate acute and chronic pain has made it an indispensable tool in treating widespread conditions of body and head pain.

The main cause of pain and tension in the body is over-contraction of the five types of Soft Tissue: Muscle, Fascia, Skin, Ligament and Nerves.  This chronic tension blocks circulation, oxygen and energy to these soft and sensitive tissues. The contracted tissue presses on pain receptors causing 90 percent of the ocean of chronic pain that humanity suffers from. In the MER Training you will learn how to release the cause of chronic pain the over contraction of soft tissues, with deep tissue bodywork and through educating the client of the cause of there pain.

As we open the body’s deeper soft tissue layers we encounter stuck energy in the form of shortened, hardened tissue. You will be taught skillful, sensitive touch we release these energy blocks.

In the training you will learn to activate the body’s natural ability for self-regulation and healing with Myofascial Unwinding and Trauma Healing. The client discovers through the work of the practitioner a new awareness of dysfunctional patterns and beliefs that laid the foundations for their painful predicament. 

MER must be tailored to each individuals needs, their specific complaint, and the over all condition of their physical, mental and emotional body. We must treat the whole person. Many factors must be considered and the individual’s body-mind must guide the treatment from start to finish. The therapist is only there to assist.

The goal of MER is to relieve pain and restore function to allow the person to lead a full active life. 

This program will focus on exploring the modality of deep bodywork as a healing art, and is designed for anyone seeking to incorporate a unique combination of bodywork techniques and teachings as a way of working with people. Bringing together the connection between the brain, emotions, body and energy.

In this training you will learn a unique and valuable method of deep tissue bodywork to help people with back, neck and pelvis pain.

Through a series of structured, hands-on sessions you will learn how to systematically release and integrate the spine. You will learn the art and science of seeing holding patterns in the body and there relationship to the emotional holding patterns. Using this information to develop treatment (programs) to affect a ‘myofascial integration and energy balancing.’

Students will learn the structural and functional anatomy of the back, neck and pelvis, and in turn develop the intuition and skills necessary to work with the underlying causes of pain in these areas – especially as they relate to a clients’ ability to physically and figuratively ‘stand up’ for themselves. 

Through a combination of daily meditations, theory, demonstrations and bodywork exchanges with consistent support from the team, you will learn a holistic approach of myofascial release. This module introduces students to the major hinges of the spine Lumbar- Sacral, Diaphragm, Heart, Thoracic Inlet, Atlas- Occiput and Pelvic release and balance. Students learn the art and science of working on the back, neck and pelvis with deep bodywork, assisted stretches, and joint mobilization. 

Students will learn about the musculature, psychology, and ‘myofascial unwinding’ as a method of psychophysical release. By the end of this module students will have learned a comprehensive series of strokes to help people experiencing neck, back and pelvis pain and will be able to give a full back, neck, shoulder, breath and pelvic session.

Module FEET, LEGS & HIPS

  • Release pain and restore natural movement to the feet, legs and hips
  • Assess and treat foot, knee and hip complaints, including body reading, palpation skills and movement tests
  • Gain knowledge of different tools to work with the plantar fascia
  • Joint mobilization for the foot, ankle, knee, and hip
  • Assisted stretches for the feet, legs and hips
  • Learn how to move deep into the body and at the sometime listen with sensitive hands for release

  • Understand the Psychology of pain in the knees, hips and feet and how to work with a powerful method of somatic dialoging
  • Learn Myofascial Unwinding of the Legs and Hips
  • Learn Myofascial anatomy of the lower body and fascial anatomy and physiology

Although one out of every ten people will suffer from plantar fasciitis at some point in their lives, the effects of competent footwork and work that continues up the back line of the leg can be remarkable in helping people find relief. This module teaches techniques to treat the lower body through a process of deep bodywork, joint mobilization, assisted stretches and unwinding. Using the posterior line of the leg as our starting point, we expand to focus on the hips, knees, feet, and legs at an advanced level.

An important focus in this module is learning how to free the gluteus medius; minimus, tensor fascia latae, and the deep rotators of the hip Participants will also learn the importance of the tibialis anterior and its role in flexing the foot at the ankle. Students learn to work on all the compartments of the upper leg through work on the hamstrings, adductors, abductors and quadriceps.

Comprised of daily meditations, theoretical instruction, demonstrations and active partner exchange, the feet, legs and hips module is a guided learning experience covering body mechanics and correct methods of working with the fascia and joints. Students also learn client body reading techniques, including ‘tracking,’ a self-correcting method to align the feet and legs. Time and space is given for questions, and discussion of actual cases participants may have encountered in their practice.

The module also includes detailed work on the knee and hip joints, and the myth of the arthritic knee and hip. Participants successfully completing the Lower Body module will have an enhanced skill level and sensitivity when dealing with persistent pain and structural dysfunction in the feet, knees and hips. Through body reading, students will be able to interpret structural imbalances and use a range of techniques to create sessions integrating the lower body with the pelvis and spine. In the process, students will be able to support clients’ felt sense of grounding and energetic contact through the feet and legs.

Module PELVIS & CORE INTEGRATION

  • Learn to evaluate and diagnose pelvic imbalances, and achieve tissue release and pelvic alignment
  • Learn advanced movement and treatment techniques for core integration
  • To find, palpate and treat the relevant core myofascial and skeletal anatomy including: the Gluteus maximus, medius and minimus, the six deep lateral rotators, the abductor and adductor groups and the iliopsoas
  • Understand how unresolved emotional issues and mental concepts create holding patterns disturbing the balance of your pelvis and heart
  • Learn a comprehensive treatment plan to release these somatic-emotional blocks and bring back the balance of the pelvis and heart connection
  • Pelvic Floor release and integration 
  • Assessing and treating sacral, pelvic and lower back pain
  • Understanding the balance between the pelvis and upper body

The pelvis, your main cornerstone of structural balance. Your leveler. Your equilibrium point. Participants will learn to evaluate and diagnose pelvic imbalances, apply proper pressure to achieve tissue release and pelvic alignment. Myofascial Dialoguing will help to connect and let go from unconscious mental restrictions and blockages. Advanced treatment and movement techniques will be taught to help facilitate the process.

The pelvis joins the legs to the spine and is the "keystone" of human architecture, as well as many feelings, and the site of many traumas for both men and women. The twenty or so deep, intrinsic muscles surrounding the pelvis are arranged in fans that hold these postures as well as feelings. This block explores this 'touchy' area with specificity and sensitivity.

  • The ‘neutral’ pelvis and pelvic support
  • Pelvic joints and their response in posture, breathing and birthing
  • The role of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles in the breath
  • Pressure systems and pelvic adhesions in the viscera
  • The role of the ‘Psoas complex’ in setting the stage for a whole-body breathe
  • Breathing is a whole-body movement that can integrate structural and physiological responses throughout our whole selves

This module will help you explore the breath response in your pelvis, expanding both your own felt sense and your ability to see and work with others.

 

Module FACE, CRANIUM, NECK & ARMS

  • Learn about spatial relationships of the segments of the torso (spatial medicine)
  • Treatment of the fascial network of the breathing structures
  • Learn four soft listening techniques for breath release
  • Learn how to treat shock and trauma of the breathing structures
  • Learn a comprehensive treatment plan for neck, elbow, shoulder, wrist and hand pain

  • Critically, students will also learn how to educate clients about the psychosomatic sources of pain and how to work with the most common pain syndromes of the upper body
  • This module will include a review of rotator cuff anatomy, palpation of the rotator cuff muscles and related structures

The chest and diaphragm are often overlooked as primary contributors to back and shoulder issues. As the source of our breath and our taking in of life, these core muscles are often tight, constricting breathing, energy flow, and movement. We learn and review simple but powerful methods to release the diaphragm, sternum, and ribcage, creating a noticeable opening right away, and helping your clients to breathe twice as deeply with half the effort.

You will learn to effectively liberate the shoulder, and also focus on techniques to release the muscles and fascia of the hands, thumbs and forearms; increasing mobility in the corresponding joints; and releasing the forearm muscles.

MER students share:

Want to share my joy and happiness! I was visiting my parents. My father (78 years old) suffers from neck and back pain. Unfortunately I cannot visit him very often. When we arrived I decided to give him a MER massage session. During the session he said he feels so good and relaxed. Later he said he just want to come more often to Tallinn to visit me and to get more sessions.„What a good feeling, I can really feel a healing!" he said. And as he stood up after 2 hours session he told me he had big problems taking deep breath because of upper back pain before session and now he did not feel the pain any more! „What a joy!“ he said! He is a hobby singer and sings often in senior clubs. After half an hour integrating he sang us 6 song in a row... with no pain at all! Thank you Nisarga.

Sandre, MER student

 

I have had the great blessing of receiving 9 sessions of Myofascial Energetic Release from Nisarga. These sessions have had a tremendous positive transformational effect on my body. My posture is better, and my life-long neck stiffness has relaxed. Like a marvellous sculptor, he has brought out the best in my physical body, with his strong, sensitive hands and highly skilled understanding and knowledge of the Myofascia and the whole human form. When it is your time for a physical tune up, give yourself the gift of working with Nisarga. He has a wonderful loving presence as he does bodywork and is very knowledgeable about body structures and know how to invite the best possible alignment through his gentle, deep and transformative touch. His hands are very sensitive, and he seems to intuitively know the exact amount of pressure needed while ironing out myofascia. I consider him to be a premier bodyworker and will definitely have many more sessions with him.

I would like to share my experience I had with Nisarga receiving myofascial energetic release sessions. My feet had experienced severe burning on the bottom pads for several months and in Poona, India I went to a neurologist at the hospital who did nerve reflection tests and an MRI on my spine finding nothing that was causing the burning. I had 18 accupuncture sessions. NO change. A friend in Poona who does body work told me to get deep tissue massage done in Goa and I called Nisarga who in 2 sessions not only helped me relieve the burning but also opened my hips and tight legs. Now back in Brazil I am dancing and thankful that I found Nisarga to work on me.
