Embodied Myoreflex Therapy Practicioner (EMP) Certification

EMP is a further education programme for dance and movement practitioners, teachers, artists, therapists or social workers looking for an efficient therapeutic and pedagogical practice. EMPs are trained myoreflex therapists and somatic teachers who use neuro-myo-fascial movement and touch techniques to develop their clients’ full movement potential. Somatic means learning through the use of existing body intelligence and by developing an awareness of physical processes, especially in motion.

By integrating somatic and dance workshops on offer at ImPulsTanz, programme participants can establish an individual professional profile and apply the acquired knowledge in various settings – such as working with specific demographic groups, in various educational, therapeutic and artistic fields.

The sensing, feeling and thinking bodies of EMPs and their clients form rich inner and outer relationships, promote agency and response-ability towards themselves and others. Together they create an ecosomatic habitat – or ‘tensegric embodiment’.

The programme instructors are pioneers in their specialist fields, have decades of teaching and training experience, and are experts in learning- and process-oriented approaches and reflective communication.
