Together with Analía (Level 2 TMM) Alejandra Almada delivered a one-day workshop using TMM exercises about touch.
Analía is an experienced body therapist with a long-standing practice. In 2015 she used TMM exercises during most of her daily sessions, resulting in amazing reports from her patients. She also developed a body scan with no words but using her hands to help her patients connect to their bodies and become aware of areas of wellness as well as areas of discomfort and pain. Her patients had different experiences ranging from awe to relief.
In this 4-hour workshop for people who work with their hands, Analia shared her long-standing experience in this field, helping us to develop an awareness of our body. A complete body scan exercise and a simple exercise helping to raise compassion were also introduced. Two of the attendees were nurses working on the maternity ward at the local public hospital. When at the end the participants shared their insights and experiences of this course one of them said, how very moved and touched she was when remembering that who ever is in front of her - a baby, a parent or doctor - they also are a human being.
