The Modalities of Healing Practiced by
David Schnelle, Tiwehkt Pehli, C.M.T.
Ehlahts Kohwaht: Schnelle Technique
Another important aspect of Schnelle’s intuitive body work, myofascial release frees restrictions in tissues—whether muscular, connective, or neurological. This freeing allows for greater freedom of movement, restores proper organ/system functioning, and releases “trapped” emotions and/or traumatic memories. (Remember that the Nemenhah Way treats the whole person in body, mind, and spirit.)
Known in Eastern medicine as acupressure and reflexology, meridian therapy restores
the proper flow of energy (conventionally called qi) by unblocking various energy points throughout the body. (The body surface presents a “map” of energy points, many of
which connect to specific organs and systemic functions. An intuitive body worker
can heal organic conditions by means of this powerful ancient, and yet
The intuitive body worker understands that the body-mind-spirit unity is an energetic unity, of which one aspect is material while another aspect is vibrational. Life is vibrational; the universe itself pulses, sending electromagnetic waves throughout intergalactic space. The human body, too, pulses vibrationally and responds to vibrations of various sorts. Because illness affects our bodily vibrations, healing energies can take the form of healing vibrations. At A Pathway to Healing, we use state-of-the-art sound systems that project music in its various healing tonalities. We also rely on the Nemenhah traditions of sacred sound, rhythm, and pitch: chanting, drumming, and ceremonial dancing serve to bring body, mind, and spirit together vibrationally.
