Holistic Pulsing is a method of self-discovery and healing that was developed over the past twenty-five years by an osteopath and Naturopath named Tovi Browning. It is based on the principles of life: the desire to connect with your self through the sensation of movement and water.
It is gentle and safe, and non-invasive, and encourages the body to relax, and release emotional and physical trauma. Rocking and stretching motions are applied to the body in a gentle manner during the session.
Holistic pulsing is one of the gentlest forms of bodywork, and the client remains fully clothed why the practitioner stretches and massages the entire body. The result is a sense of renewal, expansion, and aliveness, as well as relaxation and blissfulness. The sessions usually have long-lasting effects. The pulsing is a movement-based, passive method, which includes stretching, jiggling, lifting, shaking, and rotating to create waves throughout the body, impacting the organs, joints, muscles and fluids. The pattern of regularity of the motions create a sense of flow and ease. All dis-ease is allowed to surface without force or breaking down of resistance. Traditional massage strokes have a nurturing element, and when the rocking motion is added, it amplifies the nurturing potential. The theory of holistic pulsing is based in safety and care, and uses the power of water, and the absence of force to bring awareness to the energy locked in our bodies.
A holistic pulsing session will include several components. The practitioner attempts to maintain rhythms of the body close to the speed of a foetal heartbeat. This provides a safe and nurturing environment, and allows the nervous system to relax into the movements. The energy blockages will be detected by the practitioner and the client, and can be addressed in a non-traumatic manner. The body is made of approximately 80% water, and the rocking sends ripples flowing through the body, enlivening the systems of the body.
The power and benefits of holistic pulsing are in the gentle nature of the practice, like ocean waves melting away rocks. Holistic pulsing is based on the principle that force is met by counterforce, and gentleness can permeate the deepest into the body. The practice allows growth through gentle movement, instead of struggle. Both the pulser and the recipient gain benefits, and are included in the healing process. The work of the pulser is rewarding and pulsers have a high level of longevity.
Holistic pulsing has a number of benefits, going far beyond general relaxation. The practice is especially useful for those that have suffered from trauma due to its gentle, nurturing movements. It stimulates the body’s immune fluids, and addresses physical and emotional blockages. The practice is easy to learn, and can applied in a variety of situations, and for a varying length of time. The practice is useful for parents to learn and use with young children during night terrors, fevers, and a variety of other emotional disturbances. Therapist will enjoy the benefits they gain from the method, reversing burnout through the physical movements. It generates a feeling of self-acceptance, and breeds closeness between practitioner and client. It is a safe treatment for pregnant women, but it is always a good idea to check with your physician before treatment.
Holistic pulsing was developed by Tovi Browning, who had previously studied Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, and Naturopathy. Through her own experiences, she was led to other healing modalities, and searched for something gentle and rhythmic. She loved Egyptian dance, Traeger work, and Bioenergetics, all of which have traces in her holistic pulsing theories. The Egyptian Dance, especially, had an influence on her development of holistic pulsing. The effortlessness of the method was intrinsic to the approach being gentle, and non-invasive.
The Australian School of Holistic Pulsing is located in the Lismore area of Australia. Training is available on this campus, or by special request in other locations in Australia and internationally.
The goal of the education is to share information about Holistic Pulsing, instruction by qualified practitioners, and training at all levels with qualified teachers. All teachers at the school programs teach both in teams and independently. They share the committed to bringing the principles of holistic pulsing to students in a high standard, holistic, adult education.
