Breema Supports Health and Wellness Professionals

Health and wellness professionals have an opportunity to gain self-care tools to support balance and vitality on the job and in their lives at the upcoming Breema Fall Intensive at the Breema Center, in Oakland, October 21 to 22.

During Intensives, the Breema Center provides continuing education credit for health-related professionals, including nurses, marriage and family therapists, social workers, professional clinical counselors and bodyworkers. Although it includes two body-based components—Breema bodywork and Self-Breema movement exercises—Breema is a comprehensive holistic system that can be put into practice by anyone who wishes to foster more meaningful and harmonious relationships. The universal principles and philosophy at its heart are especially useful for those who help others and need a simple yet effective approach to staying present in the process.

Rebecca Wolfe, a nurse who has studied Breema for a couple of years, says, “My job is high-stress and fast-paced. The principle of No Hurry/No Pause helps me be more efficient, by reminding me to take a breath and connect to my body. Practicing Mutual Support with my coworkers, and No Judgment with myself and my patients, is tremendously helpful.”

“Using the principles is invaluable during client sessions, especially No Force and Single Moment/Single Activity,” says Ariadne Thompson, LMFT, and a Breema Instructor. “Also, body-mind connection allows me to remain grounded, open, and available in difficult moments, so I don’t become mentally or emotionally drained.”

The Breema Center is approved to provide Continuing Education by the California Board of Registered Nursing, the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.

Location: 6076 Claremont Ave., Oakland. For more information, call 510-428-0937 or visit Breema.com.
