Carmen Dolz, Alexandros

Carmen is a holistic therapist based in Brighton (UK). She has been interested in the body’s ability to heal itself for as long as she remembers. She is a Yuan Gong Qigong teacher and a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner and self-care facilitator as well as a reflexologist; She also holds a diploma in Natural Nutrition studied with Barbara Wren in Devon.

She has been practising Jin Shin Jyutsu since 2009. JSJ is like acupuncture (without needles) and acupressure (without pressure); a light touch healing therapy that can be self-applied so she teaches it as well as treat people individually. JSJ is a physio-philosophy; it’s the art of harmonizing the body energy lines, so we relax and recharge at the same time. A life changing experience if you practice it regularly.

Since 2013 her study of Ren Xue (the science of human life) and Yuan Gong Qigong, have had a transformative effect on both her private and professional life. Learning about self-awareness is the foundation for healing and can lead effortlessly to helping other help themselves.

Yuan Gong is easy to learn and very effective for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing; it consists of 9 methods that support a deep life healing process, from the very basic physical disharmonies to the most entrenched attitudes and habits that represent a hindrance to growth and happiness. Ren Xue is a life cultivation system that encompasses Yuan gong as a therapeutic modality; it is a comprehensive tool created to help us achieve a healthier and happier life.

BIOGRAPHY

Carmen spent her childhood in Spain,  even though she has been training in New Zealand, today she is Brighton-based, and offers retreats and workshops abroad. She loves and visits Spain and South America regularly.
She is focused on spreading the word as widely as possible. The Ren Xue motto (Zi Du Du Ren) ‘help yourself and help others’ is both her life and her drive. As soon as she learnt about body energy (Qi) she felt compelled to share it. For the last decade, she has been deepening her understanding of human nature through Qigong and Jin Shin Jyutsu. Now she teaches both Qigong and Jin Shin Jyutsu (self-help) as they support self-awareness as the foundation for healing.

“We can better our lives and the society we live in by connecting with ourselves, others and nature. We are a totality. “

Lynn Campbell

My practice and my work as a Movement Medicine Teacher is deeply part of who I am. 

I have worked in this field of body work and well-being for many many years: originally for over ten years as a primary school teacher and special needs teacher .  In 1994 I gave up full time school based teaching to focus on movement and body wisdom and to study for my MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy at the Laban Centre in London.

Since then I’ve worked in Newcastle as a freelance artist, therapist and teacher specialising in offering movement play and dance to young children and children with autism. I’ve also co parented 3 children.And discovered the art of trapeze !

This fulfilling, challenging work took a turn for the richer and deeper when I started my dancing and training with the School of Movement Medicine.

My Movement Medicine teaching includes work in nature, ceremony, SEER and ritual, open classes and workshops and work with children and families. I also weave Movement Medicine into my groups and 1:1 work with pregnant women and new mothers.
