Advanced Level 3 Audio Series: Bodywork

OINC’s Advanced Level 3 Bodywork training series helps the professional and student transition to adding biophysical interventions to characteranalysis. Becoming an Orgonomist shifts your clinical identity, including changes in how you approach your clinical work, how you explain it to the patient, and how you change your office setup so you can do biophysical interventions. The theory is elegant and multilayered. The professional must understand all aspects of biophysical theory and technique as well as contraindications before embarking. This series of 3 classes covers the basics. The segments of body armor are discussed as are expressive techniques, working with the breath, evaluating patients for bodywork, and other information critical to becoming an Orgonomist.

Unlike other more academic types of subject matter, which can use audio experiential exercises to enhance understanding and can lead to proficiency in and of itself, learning bodywork interventions requires students to have mentoring from an experienced Orgonomist so they can see, feel, and be coached on proper technique. These Advanced Level 3 Bodywork CD’s, along with mentoring, will facilitate the professional in adding somatic interventions to form a complete mind-body approach to therapy.
