Your Lesson

Using hands on contact, differently than massage (less manipulation and more indirect), the teacher stimulates your nerve endings, bringing you to an awareness of the balance (or imbalance) of muscular tensions in the body, ultimately creating a redistribution of appropriate tension. 

Essentially, you may discover your shoulders are tight, which means that, because we are a whole being, and not just shoulders, somewhere else there may be a lack of tension.  Through the stimulus of touch, the excess muscular tension is released and redistributed to where its needed. The beauty of our design is that we don't need to know where the tension 'should' go: once we free the movement, it will arrive.
