Fascia has infinite depth. It holds the psycho-emotional, spiritual, energetic and physical aspects of our being. For the practitioner, the fascia provides an entranceway into the fullness of the human experience.
The practice of fascial layering is a powerful and effective method for accessing this fullness through the physical medium. Fascial Layering describes the process of creating connection between practitioner and client. When we meet the client on the layer they live on, it empowers the client to participate in his\her process of change and discovery.
As the energy of the client leads the session, the practitioner follows, moving fluidly from layer to layer, responding to the fluxuating energies that demand attention. All techniques and tools avail themselves to the practitioner and so the work can move seamlessly along the energy spectrum. At one moment the client may require a layer of touch much like we find in a reiki or cranial session. The next moment, may call for the deeper pressure of an elbow.
A common misunderstanding of bodywork in general, and SI in particular, is that the practitioner is doing something to the client. The practice of Fascial Layering demands the practitioner move and respond within a dynamic relationship with the client. As we open to the fullness of our own experience, we become available to see the fullness of our client. We can then respond to the specific needs of our client, as opposed to projecting our ideas of balance, verticality, or any other concept onto them.
Perceiving the energetic flow and following it are keys to making fascial layering work. No matter what the client might say about their body, or what we might think needs to happen in the session, only by following the energy are we able to give the client exactly the session they need. Following the energy is how we meet the client with accurate empathy. When we can perceive the specificity of our client’s challenge, they feel met. This is where the work begins.
