UNDERSTANDING HORMONES

YOUR SECRET INTERNAL WORLD

KNOWING OURSELVES

We all express different behaviours in order to feel well and reduce stress by our own definition, to feel comfortable in our own skin. 

 

Hormones play a lead role in how we turn up to the world as a human and how we interact with our environment as a whole. They can tip the balance to give you super human powers or help you to eat five burgers in a sitting if you felt inclined…with no holding back on the nacho cheese. 

THE HORMONAL EXPERIENCE

They will create feelings of extreme happiness or dump you into the depths of despair, playing you like a yo-yo emotionally and physically with testosterone and oestrogen levels. 

 

The trick is to not to camp out in any one state, and to embrace all at different points with elation, amusement and annoyance in equal doses and have the ability to return to home base and

re-calibrate. 

 

Hormones are the fabric of life, an orchestra of interactions.

Why the Endocrine System and Hormones?

 

I have been writing this course for 18 months to work in partnership with our other SafeToMove workshops that seek to play and have fun with physiology and areas interacting with muscular-skeletal and fascial experiences.

 

A new workshop for hands on therapists. These magic molecules and signals are travelling around virtually anywhere in our circulatory system delivering vital messages. Over 80 of them regulate and create an impressive amount of our functioning and behaviour via 10 amazing glands. It’s a remarkable and silent system working hand in hand with your nervous system. Let’s explore how we experience this as a human. 

What To Expect.

 

 

What you will learn.

 

A full understanding of key hormones, their roles, locations and what happens when the balance is tipped. 

 

The biochemistry and physiology of the 10 major hormonal glands. 

 

  • Hypothalamus.

  • Pituitary gland

  • Pineal gland.

  • Thyroid gland.

  • Parathyroid glands. 

  • Adrenal glands.

  • Pancreas. 

  • Thymus.

Practical Learning

 

We always aim to inform and create concepts that you can apply as an effective and talented therapist. With this in mind, we will offer applications that make sense for people experiencing symptoms and behaviour that are the side product of aging, genetics, lifestyle, surgery, environment, social experience, for example. 

 

An intrinsic understanding of the neurology and endocrine system will guide practical hands on work for each individual. A guide and map.

 

Creating a safe experience for the client and a noticeably positive change to the quality of their life whilst providing quick helpful tools to use at home.
