What is Pulsing?

Children, adults and animals all instinctively rock themselves and others, just as a baby is rocked before birth by its mother's movements and later in the arms of those who nurture.

In Pulsing this fundamental movement is created by working directly with the bones while the whole body is simultaneously gently lengthening, softly stretching, lifting and rotating, spiralling and elongating, reverberating to the body rhythms of both giver and receiver.

Its power lies in its simplicity; the non-invasive, gentle rhythmic rocking, spiralling and stretching movements invite both body and mind to painlessly release deeply held tensions.

Like water, Pulsing finds the path of least resistance, permeates deep inside, creating space where old patterns and dis-ease may be replaced by ease and flow, movement and flexibility.

What happens in a Pulsing treatment?

A Pulsing session takes approximately the same length of time as a massage treatment. The recipient lies on a massage table wearing light, loose clothing while the practitioner works around the table. The recipient may be lying on their back, front or side as appropriate.


A brief history of Pulsing

Developed from the work of Milton Trager and drawing from traditional Hawaiian bodywork, Pulsing was first brought to Britain in the late 1970s by Curtis Turchin.  Here he taught the techniques to Silke Ziehl and Guy Gladstone, both already highly experienced body workers who have in turn continued to develop and teach Pulsing.

Lynne has trained extensively with Silke Ziehl who, returning to the source of the work, has also undertaken traditional Hawaiian bodywork trainings with a native Kahuna teacher in Hawaii. Integrating this work along with so many other influences to create her own style of Pulsing, Silke continues the 'tradition' of Pulsing which, true to the very essence of the work itself, grows and develops with each new person who comes to it.
