Healing Dance® is a powerful and beautiful aquatic technique developed by Alexander George in 1993. It consists of ten trainings. In seven, techniques are taught in which the receiver remains on the surface of the water. The three remaining trainings are subaquatic, featuring a variety of submergings. The guiding philosophy of the work is that… …movement is the «medicine» and in the experience of «received dance» the healing process in the body is activated.
- Students learn to create the sensation of lightness and weightlessness, to generate a rhythmic field, to find the various «rhythms of awareness» for clients and even to channel movement.
- Physical and emotional blockages are resolved in the polarity between freedom and security.
- Advanced body mechanics are taught to create movements of greater subtlety and sensitivity.
As the vocabulary of movements expands students become more confident to improvise and better respond to the needs of the client.
