Multiplicity in Unity

Date; 6th + 7th APRIL


The idea of separateness should be obliterated. Not appreciating this to the full is a pitfall, so striving to get the bones in normal position, per se or perhaps to keep them in position is simply hopeless. In this regard, the bone item is simply an idol, and a similar idol could be made of the muscles, and so forth.”

Carl P. McConnell, DO, JAOA April 1935


A  C.P.D. course with Paul Hand

The course is an exploration of how differing philosophical and perceptual perspectives impact how effective we are when working. Attendees will learn to apply Amatsu Techniques with new found perspective and context. A deeper appreciation of Unity and Wholeness will enable the student’s further development to grow in an organic fashion. The feeling of ‘bringing the whole with you’ at all times.

Topics Covered

  • Observation, re-framing our mental outlook can improve our observation skills, a closer look at the observer and observed relationship, resulting in observation as an active process!
  • Palpation, seeing patient in a different context can reveal deeper insights into their problems. (ie. enhanced diagnosis)
  • How an appreciation of phenomenon as they occur can ‘Bring out the Wellness’ from the patient.
  • An exploration of the stages of therapy, how to consolidate this new learning into Unity


 (A unique form of holistic physical therapy)
