What is OSHO Rebalancing?
Rebalancing was developed in the 1980's by a group of long-time bodywork practitioners. The idea was essentially to create a new form of bodywork that would take the best of the presently existing modalities and imbue them with a deeper perspective than was currently available. The main component of this new approach was to make awareness and meditativeness as a central feature of the work.
Osho Rebalancing utilizes a combination of deep tissue massage, joint tension release and energy balancing, combined with Osho Active Meditations, to counteract chronic holding patterns that contribute to pain and illness. Osho Rebalancing views the human body as much more than it's physical component, recognizing that the emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects are of as much importance to our totality.
The technique is offered at the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune , India and in Osho Meditation Centers and other health centers around the globe. Trainings are available from different institutes.
You will also find many qualified and certified individual rebalancers who offer their services in many countries.
OSHO Rebalancing is a form of body oriented awareness work, which brings people back into harmony with themselves, so they can live their essential unity of body, mind and heart. It works with a unique synthesis of body reading, connective tissue manipulation, joint release, energy and breath work, body awareness training as well as emotions and their expression. As the body releases muscular rigidities and relaxes, energy is set free. At the same time old and unconscious emotional and mental attitudes and patterns which imprison us can come into our awareness.
This helps us to a better understanding of ourselves and of our hidden potentials. Hereby we come closer to our innermost core, which enables us to live life more spontaneously and meaningfully.
The essence of Rebalancing is a loving, sensitive touch.
Bodywork is one of the finest arts and therefore not only a question of technique but at first an expression of love. Rebalancing sees the body as a priceless gift and not as a mechanism that needs to be" repaired". In this sense Rebalancing meets the uniqueness of each human being.
The treatment usually includes a series of 10 to 12 sessions. Though each session is complete in itself and one session is perfectly ok. A series of sessions has a powerful synergetic effect and allows the whole body to be systematically included. In this way it is suited to the individual history of the person, to their needs and to the challenges of their actual life situation.
OSHO REBALANCING Training
Osho Rebalancing Trainings are available in different places around the world and are provided by qualified and experienced Osho Rebalancers.
The training is an intense self-transformational process, as well as a preparation in holistic bodywork. It is held over 2 years with three twelve-day blocks each year.
During the first year you will learn how to systematically free the body from tensions and constrictions, so to allow the body itself to reorganize. This process brings more grace and easiness of movement, a realignment of the posture, reducing the "noise" in the whole body-mind system and opening the door to meditation and to awareness.
You will experience directly how it is possible to open to your body and become more conscious of its existence, and learn about body reading.
You will begin to learn how to use one's own body as an instrument for healing and growth. During the second year we will introduce experiencial neo-reichian approach, awareness in movement, and will deepen communication strategies, while continuing to work with touch.
Osho Rebalancing looks at the body as made of an intrinsic core and an extrinsic sleeve.
The core corresponds to the "being", the sleeve to the "doing". In this vision, Osho Rebalancing wants to bring balance and integration to the whole, working with the left and the right side, the upper and the lower side, the front and the back, as well as the inner and the outer, the being and the doing.
This training is suitable for people of any background that are interested in discovering the interactions of bodymind processes through direct experience, as well as further studies for people in medical, psychological or social professions.
Learning to work in a meditative way, through touching and being touched, and through an energetic process to open the body, awareness work and group sharing, the training can become a growth journey, during which each individual will find support in a loving and accepting atmosphere.
After completion of the training, you will receive the certificate in Osho Rebalancing.
This authorizes you to work as an Osho Rebalancer, to use the name Osho Rebalancing and the official "logo".
