Developed in Europe by Rita Harrison over the last 25 years it combines many tried and tested holistic modalities and is not just another sports therapy.
It is individually tailored sessions, which target your specific needs. It supports optimal health, performance goals and improvements in physical power, dexterity and endurance.
“It’s time for a willow body alignment when your body is not functioning properly, your pain is recurring, you’re in a constant state of alert, stressed out, or suffer from exhaustion and burn-out.”
This is an exceptional way of aligning the physical body and restoring emotional balance. It’s also excellent when your body needs a tune-up, or when it’s not functioning optimally. It works on the nervous system, meridians, organs, hormonal and immune system, muscles, joints, jaw, tissues and cranial sacral system, and achieves a relaxation that comes from deep within. It gives you an instant feeling of being lighter and your spine straightens itself immediately.
The Best Time For A Body Organization Is:
• When you feel stressed out, or off-balance
• When you have back pain, head pain or neck pain
• When you have sleeping disorders
• When you have problems with your stomach or intestines
• When you have cardiovascular problems
• When your metabolism is operating less than optimally
• When you’re getting forgetful, or are unable to concentrate
• When you wake up still tired
• When you are depressed
“This part of Willow is like doing your spring cleaning at home: it aligns the spine, centers the joints, releases muscle tension, strengthens the hormonal system, improves concentration & more.”
Our nervous system reacts to threatening or stressful situations like it did in caveman times, with the freeze, fight or flight response. But we live in different times now, because instead of getting rid of the tension and energy that’s developed by fighting or running away, we store it inside, layer upon layer, until we’ve built up so much stress that our body can’t take it anymore.
Our body starts to react with physical symptoms that have actually developed over years, but were suppressed, or our body has compensated for them. We get stuck in constant alertness and the body, mind and soul forgets how to get the rest it needs.
The Body Organization stimulates the nervous system in a way that allows it to break through these frozen fear, fight and flight patterns to get back to normal by bringing these experiences of the past to an end.
“Once your body can put into action what your mind and soul have long understood, everything falls into place.”
The Willow System Road Show | Rita in Action!
Tim was a volunteer at one of Rita’s Willow System Road Shows and the subject he wanted to address was an issue that many people have:
• Fear was stopping him from accomplishing his goals.
As soon as she started the preliminary muscle testing, a kinesiology procedure that works with our nervous system to determine what gives the body strength and what weakens it, something totally different came up.
Tim’s body was showing a weak muscle (a weakness) when Rita mentioned his name.
Normally she would do a number of standard tests, such as “I’m here” which should show a strong muscle test and “I’m not here” which should produce a weak muscle.
The next standard test would be “My name is Tim” which should again produce a strong muscle, but in Tim’s case it didn’t which you can see quite clearly in the video on this webpage.
She first tested to see if it was a neurological disorganization (Rita calls it Switching), which is a paradoxical reaction to something, but in Tim’s case this wasn’t the reason.
Further tests showed that this subject was the number one priority to be looked at and she also found that the solution would be found in the systemic level (Relationships and Family Dynamics).
It became very apparent that Tim was obviously feeling guilty about assaulting his younger brother.
Rita’s intuition told her that he should lie down in front of his little brother, facing up.
Tim told her that his older brother also beat him up and his father was also abusive. Rita observed by only a hand motion that his older brother was sitting on his chest by his reaction to asking him where to put him in the room!
Sadness started taking Tim by storm, but anger that was building by the minute behind the veil. He told her that his older brother was putting everybody down, even his son. Tim had been physically abused, but his older brother was now verbally, emotionally and energetically abusive to everyone.
This is colloquially known as playing dead or playing possum, which is an involuntary reflex action used as a defense mechanism and in Tim’s case a subconscious survival pattern that he had developed early in his life.
Tim learned to survive by spacing out, distracting people’s attention away from him and by playing possum. When she tested his reaction to his own name there were nobody home, no Tim, no Timothy, no nobody…
His nervous system and muscles reacted accordingly and in his day-to-day life this meant that his whole system and everything that is related to his life reacted so and was sabotages everything!
“What would happen if you didn’t have to play dead anymore?”
She asked him as a systemic question trying to help him access his own capability of doing something about his situation.
Tim immediately reacted by moving his body, starting by sitting up. This was his first step out of his helplessness that had been frozen inside him for so many years! This new experience will reshape his life and he noted that he could feel his vertebrae straightening up.
Rita told him after doing some more muscle testing that by tapping his kidney meridian (Chinese Medicine (TCM) K27 acupuncture points) he could help to heal the fear that was held energetically in his body.
After tapping the kidney points for only a few moments he could already feel a reorganization of his brain, calling it a Loop-de-Lou in his head.
This of cause was not the time or the place to go into to much detail, but a first step toward a new freeing pattern for his nervous system and in private Rita said she could have done a lot more.
