Hellerwork is a powerful system of somatic education and structural bodywork, developed by Joseph Heller, which is based on the inseparability of body, mind, and spirit. Hellerwork makes the connection between movement and the body alignment, and restores the body's natural balance from the inside out.
During the eleven-session series, the structural balance of the body is realized through the systematic release of muscle and connective tissue using a variety of gentle deep-tissue bodywork techniques. This restores the body's optimal natural balance and posture. Movement education is incorporated to enhance fluidity and ease of motion which helps the client develop a deeper awareness of their body and its expression in the world. Self-awareness facilitated through dialogue is an important component of the Hellerwork series.
This process assists in clearing out old and dysfunctional patterns and creates new optimal perspectives and tools that inspire awareness, joy, and freedom. This is all facilitated from a state of unconditional love, which is an important component offered in our practitioner training.
This heart-based approach is healing and transformative by nature because people grow more easily when they experience love and support.
Hellerwork is based on the assumption that every person is innately healthy. The client's results are maximized by creating a deeper experience of the integrity of their body, their movement, and their relationship with themselves, with others, and with the world around them. A shift in the body is a shift in consciousness.
