Mer training

What is the training about?

Myofascial Energetic Release (MER) training is a 6-part integrative healing modality.

It is designed with to meet the increasing demand for bodywork practitioners able to work holistically with deep bodywork to meet the physical and emotional needs of their clients.

One aspect of MER is working with the muscles (myo) and connective tissue (fascia) of the body. You will learn the art and science of providing deep bodywork with, hands-on strokes, assisted stretches, myofascial unwinding and joint mobilisation coupled with emotional awareness and release.

This training will give you a professional skill that you can use to work with clients, helping them significantly improve both their physical and emotional state of being. You will learn to activate the body’s natural ability for self-regulation and healing. The goal of a MER session is to relieve pain, restore physical function, increase emotional awareness and achieve balance between the body and the mind, allowing the client to lead a full and active life.

MER is developed by Satyarthi Peloquin, who is one of the original creators of Rebalancing. It is the sum of his 47 years of experience and training in deep bodywork. MER trainings are happening in France, Poland, Greece, The Netherlands and now also in Denmark/Scandinavia.

Many trainees of MER are already therapists and bodyworkers and want to include MER in their practise.

Beginners are also welcome to come and learn this beautiful work.

You can start the MER training with any of the 6 modules as all modules (except for the Advanced module) can be taken in any order.

About this module

This module introduces you to the major hinges of the spine: lumbar/sacral, diaphragm, heart, thoracic inlet and atlas/occiput. The focus will be giving deep bodywork on the back and neck and help the pelvis release to restore balance. Assisted stretches and joint mobilisation will be introduced to give you tools to help integration.

You will learn the art and science of evaluating posture and seeing holding patterns in the body and relate them to your client’s emotional state of being. By involving the client in this process you help him take responsibility for his own healing process.

By the end of this module you will have learned a comprehensive series of strokes to help people who experience neck, back, shoulder and pelvis pain. Upon completion of MER 1 you will be able to give a full back, neck, shoulder, breath and pelvic MER session.

About this module

Module 2 is comprised of daily meditations, theoretical instruction, demonstrations and active partner exchange. The feet, legs and hips module is a guided learning experience covering body mechanics and correct methods of working with the fascia and joints. You also learn body- reading techniques and how to translate the information gathered into a session.

An important focus in this module is learning how to free the gluteus medius and minimus, tensor fascia latae, and the deep rotators of the hip. You will discover the importance of the tibialis anterior and its role in flexing the foot at the ankle. You will learn to work on all of the compartments of the upper leg through work on the hamstrings, adductors, abductors and quadriceps.

This module will provide you with the skills needed to interpret structural imbalances and use a range of techniques to create sessions integrating the lower body with the pelvis and spine.

About this module

The pelvis joins the legs to the spine and is the “keystone” of human architecture and structural alignment. The pelvis is the equilibrium point for the entire body. Anterior/posterior tilt, rotation and elevation of the hip will cause compensation elsewhere. Helping the pelvis to a neutral position is crucial in achieving postural alignment.

Module 3 explores this “touchy” area with sensitivity. A lot of suppressed emotion is held here and requires an approach based on skill, awareness and compassion. Learning how to connect with the felt sense will help you understand and release mental and emotional restrictions held as tension in the tissues.

Other themes explored in this module are the pelvic joints and their function in posture and the role of the psoas muscle complex and abdominal muscles in breathing.

Breathing is a movement that involves structural and physiological responses throughout our entire body. MER 3 supports you in exploring how your pelvis supports or restricts your ability to breathe deeply and fully. Exploring your own restrictions will help you become more aware of your own breathing and increase your ability to help others release old feelings stored in the pelvis.
