Title: Looking after ourselves: enhancing our body awareness and ability to self-care.
Once you have registered, you will receive an email with the zoom link. You will also get a reminder on the day of the webinar, with the link. If you miss the webinar, or want to rewatch it, you can access it in the Members' Area from 72 hours after the event.
This will be a purely practical session following this month’s theme of ‘Developing Body Wisdom’. Jan will guide you in self-exploration, using attention and intention to self-scan and help your body let go of old patterning. We will end with a seated, head/neck fascial unwinding session.
You will learn/experience:
- A simple self-scanning process which will help self-awareness and an understanding of where any discomfort or unrest may lie in the body.
- How to direct attention and intention towards struggling parts of the body in order to promote self-healing.
- How to let go of tension and holding patterns in the head, neck and shoulders (and thus, potentially, body-wide) through a seated practice which can be used whenever needed.
You will need:
- A mat or bed (reasonably firm), cosy, loose clothing, a flat pillow if desired, room to move arms and legs.
- Water to drink as needed.
Jan is the founder and director of the British Fascia Symposium and The Fascia Hub. She has been in healthcare since 1979, originally training as a State Registered Nurse in the Queen Alexandra Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC), working with patients on the wards and in the operating theatre; a superb if non-deliberate foundation for her future career as a specialist in scars and adhesions.
In 1988 she was taught by a blind massage therapist to really ‘feel’ the body, leading to a lifetime passion for body work. Jan was a massage volunteer at the Auckland Commonwealth Games where she learned from professionals from all modalities. Her work now is the culmination of many years of training and experience in different disciplines. Through her school, Body in Harmony Training, Jan runs a variety of light touch therapy courses, including Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork, for which she was the first accredited tutor in the UK.

Jan is also the co-editor and lead author of the book Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body, published by Handspring Publishing in May 2020.
