The principles of Noah Karrasch's CORE® model focus on whole body, breath, and movement awareness in order to determine where restrictions and blockages in the body may occur. Based on a lifetime of fine-tuning CORE® theory and practice, this comprehensive text not only explains in detail how and why this model works, but will also help movement therapists get better results for clients by being more in tune with them and their bodies, and by improving clarity in their own practitioner bodies.
Looking at the body as a whole with its four centres and five restriction areas, this book shows how to help clients move into and through spaces that may be `stuck'. Photographs and illustrations demonstrate how to work from a free and resilient CORE® and how to isolate, stretch and release restrictions to achieve greater energy levels and pain reduction. With the mantra that in order to treat the physical, we must also examine our emotional, mental and energetic states, this book shows how to better involve clients in their own healing process through movement work.
