Touch Therapy for the Critically, Chronically and Terminally
It is such an honor to be able to provide this workshop to you. For so long the dying experience has been pushed to the back of the mind so that it need not be faced up to or dealt with until it is actually happening within one’s realm of family and friends. The challenge I put before you is to open your mind and set aside how you have previously approached the subject of death and dying in order to realize through touch that you can be an integral part of easing away the fear of dying in the last days of another’s physical existence. Death is such an incredible spiritual experience. It is the culmination of all we have thought, known, doubted and believed suddenly thrown into an arena often referred to or defined as ‘transition’. I hope to dispel the definition of ‘Death’ as being an ugly word and show you ways to embrace and find peace within the amazing event of the physical to spiritual transitioning.

Rhythm and Touch: The Fundamentals of Craniosacral
With its low-impact, nurturing approach to working with the spine, the skull, the diaphragm, and the fascia to release pain in the body, Craniosacral Therapy has become an increasingly popular healing method. Rhythm and Touch explains in detail how it works. Divided into two parts, the book follows a simple, step-by-step instructional model. Part one guides the practitioner in discovering the craniosacral rhythm and learning how to interpret and respond to its cues. Following the line of the spine from pelvis to neck and head, this section develops a protocol for a basic session. It details how to touch the body and support the inner healing process. Part two offers a thorough review of the brain’s protective and nourishing environment, the cranium. It introduces new means of assessing and easing restriction in the relationship of cranial bones. Moving outward from the cranium, this section describes the bones of the mouth and face, their interrelationship and motions, and how to assess and release the results of injury. The final chapter offers reflections and recommendations for using this vast array of knowledge effectively.

Touch (A Bradford Book)
Why we need a daily dose of touch: an investigation of the effects of touch on our physical and mental well-being. Although the therapeutic benefits of touch have become increasingly clear, American society, claims Tiffany Field, is dangerously touch-deprived. Many schools have “no touch” policies; the isolating effects of Internet-driven work and life can leave us hungry for tactile experience. In this book Field explains why we may need a daily dose of touch.The first sensory input in life comes from the sense of touch while a baby is still in the womb, and touch continues to be the primary means of learning about the world throughout infancy and well into childhood. Touch is critical, too, for adults' physical and mental health. Field describes studies showing that touch therapy can benefit everyone, from premature infants to children with asthma to patients with conditions that range from cancer to eating disorders.This second edition of Touch, revised and updated with the latest research, reports on new studies that show the role of touch in early development, in communication (including the reading of others' emotions), in personal relationships, and even in sports. It describes the physiological and biological effects of touch, including areas of the brain affected by ...
