Promoting Salutogenesis through Yoga and “Alchemic Body Pulsing”
If in India it has always been an intrinsic value of yoga practices to have a positive effect on the practitioner’s health, and with few exceptions, until recently there was no need to develop an entirely dedicated branch to its therapeutic aspect. In contrast, in the West, in recent decades, there has been a desire to give impetus to this aspect, and today yoga therapy represents a valid synthesis between ancient Eastern wisdom and the latest knowledge in complementary medicine, biomechanics, and posturology.
The complementary nature of yoga and the so-called energy medicines is reflected in the common goal of releasing stagnant energy in the meridian system, organs, or blood connected to them. While yoga provides a format to release blocks, Alchemic Body Pulsing® provides a more comprehensive framework to understand which postures may be more suitable for improving a particular health condition.
This course is suitable for all yoga teachers who wish to deepen their knowledge and improve their ability to assist students. It is also useful for therapists and medical professionals who want to integrate their knowledge with new insights and perspectives. Moreover, experienced yoga practitioners can benefit from this course to enhance and integrate their practice.
Alchemic Body Pulsing®
Alchemic Body Pulsing® represents the synthesis of over 30 years of study and practice in the field of Bio-Natural Disciplines. My practice of Shiatsu, Kinesiology, and Cranio Sacral has certainly undergone significant evolution, becoming more subtle, intuitive, and profound over time. The most important influence that led me to a different understanding of life phenomena is undoubtedly due to the study and practice of Hatha Yoga, based on the classical principles of the eight limbs expressed in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Furthermore, my long-standing passion for music and percussion instruments led me on a parallel path of exploring vibratory phenomena, which I have recently called “Sound Harmonization.” The union of all these passions and knowledge gave birth to “Alchemic Body Pulsing®.”
The manual skills acquired in clinical practice and teaching of Shiatsu, Kinesiology, and Cranio Sacral provided the matrix and support where I could skillfully graft aspects of the energetic physiology of the human being that became evident not only through the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine but also, and above all, through the study of Yoga. The vibration generated by the use of voice and various sound reproducing instruments metaphorically represented the closure of the circle, allowing me to interact more integratedly and effectively with the subtler energetic aspects of the human being.
“Alchemic Body Pulsing®” indicates the possibility of generating or connecting with the pulsation/vibration of the body and directing it towards an alchemical transformation, where “alchemical” stands for mysterious, esoteric, but also transformative. This course allows you to acquire new and original manual bodywork techniques, easy to use and integrate with any other technique. Alchemic Body Pulsing® can become a concrete opportunity for personal growth and evolution, whether you are already an experienced practitioner or still a student or beginner. In “Alchemic Body Pulsing®,” you will find numerous points for reflection, inspiration, and growth.

A powerful means of self-inquiry and growth, an effective technique to reintegrate and reconnect all our normally disjointed parts.
Alchemic Body Pulsing® is a subtle and effective bodywork method, a healing technique that can be learned and applied by everyone. It is a gentle and non-invasive method that uses pulsation, vibration, and pressure techniques to harmonize body fluids, prana, and the nervous system.
Working together with Hatha yoga, pranayama, and mudras, you can directly interact with the blocks in the body, work on physical pain, stress, tensions, and other imbalances, restoring harmony, connection, and fluidity, and reinstating the vibrational harmony necessary to fully live and express your life.
