Join Amy Wheeler, Matt Erb and Steve Haines for a live, cross-disciplinary conversation around the power of touch, as part of Singing Dragon’s birthday event series.
Bringing their expertise from a range of fields in bodywork – including yoga therapy, physical therapy and craniosacral therapy – our second professional event will discuss the power of touch across various disciplines. It will identify potential red flags around the use of touch in professional practice, and unveil how utilizing touch in the patient/practitioner relationship can be beneficial to whole-person healing.
The discussion will focus on key questions, such as:
- Does language around touch play a vital role in the healing process?
- What are the main considerations around ethics and consent relating to touch for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, healthcare and bodyworkers?
- What are the differences between positive and negative touch?
- How do we communicate concepts such as interoception to our clients and other healthcare professionals?
With the #MeToo movement bringing touch and consent sharply into the spotlight, and the pandemic creating a society where so many of us are experiencing a lack of human touch, this discussion will cover key topical issues for practitioners and highlight the essential role of touch in the whole-person approach to healing.
