Body Frequency Alignment (BFA) is a complementary modality that aims at assisting the body/brain to function at an optimum, healthy state. It is based on the hypothesis that the body is capable of healing itself. Body Frequency Alignment’s core purpose is to promote and strengthen the body’s self-healing ability.
The Body Frequency Alignment approach is twofold. It consists of both a physical technique, done by a qualified BFA practitioner, and a set of mindfulness-based techniques.
Our goal is to put your health back into your hands.
The Physical Technique
The physical technique of Body Frequency Alignment is a very relaxing, calming and soothing experience. Sessions involve listening to a specially designed and engineered audio backtrack, while a trained practitioner performs specific percussive movement patterns on the back and sides of the body. Sessions also include pressure point release patterns.
The combination of the audio stimulus (music) and the tactile stimulus (percussive movement patterns) aims to bring about a state of alignment of brainwave state, heart rate and breath rate. This state of alignment has shown to achieve some very beneficial outcomes, while also bringing about deep states of calm and relaxation.
Practises and Techniques
Body Frequency Alignment focuses on the body’s own ability to heal itself. When we experience excessive amounts of stress, both mental and environmental, our immune function and other bodily functions are hindered.
We can give the body and mind the help it needs by regularly practising simple mindfulness-based techniques. Body Frequency Alignment practitioners introduce and guide their clients through certain techniques, giving you the tools to help and take care of your own health.
You are shown and guided through certain mindfulness based techniques that are very beneficial when practised regularly. We call this “homework”, as these techniques are done in your own time.
We do encourage that people practise these techniques as regularly as possible.
About Body Frequency Alignment
- Developed to assist the body/brain in achieving and maintaining an improved state of health.
- Can be done in conjunction with conventional medical practices, but is in itself not a registered medical technique or modality.
- BFA works around the understanding that the body is able to heal itself more effectively, when in a specific state of mind and physical being. and that this state can be induced by methods and practices undertaken by both a Body Frequency Alignment practitioner as well as the individual.
- It is by no means an alternative healing modality. When addressing cases of illness, BFA is intended to be done in conjunction with the treatment of a registered medical professional, or upon suggestion or referral of a registered medical professional.
- Body Frequency Alignment is not a form of massage.
- The principals employed are based on certain specific contemporary scientific and medical discovery, as well as the discoveries and observations of the psychological and neuropsychological sciences.
