Healing Touch Workshop

Tutor: Claudia Tomaz
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton & Hove BN1 2LR
Next start date: 21 March & 22 March 2020, Weekend workshop

In times where we use touch screens and interact with others through screens and texts, what does it mean to touch? This workshop focuses on the importance of healing touch, for self-healing and for the healing of others, and explores trust in a safe healing space. 

With a background in Shiatsu, Claudia will facilitate gentle healing exercises, energy awareness practices, meditations and self-massage, as well as some pair and group work. You will practice listening to your own body and to touch another through the gentle power of healing touch. Practical and literally hands-on, this workshop offers tools to help you navigate a world in need of balance, connection and harmony. No experience necessary. All exercises are done in comfortable clothes.

"These different experiences have allowed me a solid ground to develop my own treatment style. I follow my intuition and sensitivity while focusing on clients needs. Healing means Wholeness. A whole person approach is my focus. Through Shiatsu, energy and healing touch, I connect the dots and work on harmonizing and balancing."
