Hello everyone and welcome to another blog post at Active Body! Today I want to share with you about some amazing modalities of wellness that have been pioneered and developed by internationally renowned bodywork therapist, wellness coach, and retreat leader Ocean Bloom.
I first met Ocean in the early 2000's when she was a Fitness World Champion, Celebrity Personal Trainer, and certified Yoga instructor. I remember getting ready for competition and asking Ocean for tips on training, nutrition, and mindset. She always gave amazing advise and was eager to help anyone. She has inspired thousands of people around the world live an active lifestyle and be a better version of themselves.
I'm glad we stayed in touch over the years and today you get to learn about what she has been up too and the new approach to overall wellness Ocean has created. People all over the world travel to see Ocean and get treated in this combination of raw fitness, ancient elements of yoga, Chinese and Thai Medicine, Breath Work, Thai yoga massage, and Emotional Clearing Techniques.
Here is what Ocean has to say about her approach:
"Thank you Juan and Active Body for this amazing opportunity to share my story and the services I offer. I am the founder of "Conscious Movement Therapy". CMT is a centering approach to transforming physical, emotional, and energetic blockages, in a way that is empowering and uplifting.
It is an extraordinarily powerful full-body healing treatment, which often provides immediate results to its recipients. CMT sessions include dialogue, Breath Work, and Thai Yoga Massage, to connect each other person to his or her own inner guide.
Whether you are motivated by a desire to transform one or more aspects of your life, or have physical and emotional issues that are causing discomfort, illness, trauma, or addiction, CMT offers you a way to release and address patterns and behaviors that are affecting your mind, emotions, body and overall health."
During my conversation with Ocean I was fascinated by her knowledge and wanted to find out exactly how CMT works. This is her response:
"CMT is about getting to the core of our feelings, and physically clearing emotions by working through challenges and energetically flushing the nervous system in a direct and powerful way.
CMT is facilitated through the combination of 6 different types of therapies. Its core is based around Breathing (Prana-Energy), Meditation, and the physical movements rooted in Yoga and Thai Massage. Subtle Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Emotional Freedom Tapping Techniques are used to access the subconscious.
There can be a huge separation between our thoughts and feelings, our conscious and subconscious. We often tell ourselves one thing when we are feeling something completely different. The body holds memories, trauma, pain, guilt, shame, and stress. Even joy is blocked in its tissues. If these trapped experiences are held for too long without a release, the body starts to break down and create illness.
In CMT the breath and the body are used to release and clear what couldn't be said or acknowledged. After a CMT session, you will experience a feeling of calmness and lightness, and you will appreciate a greater perspective and awareness of self and others."
The truth of the matter is we all have had events in our lives that have caused pain, trauma, stress, and in many causes even worse leaving scars behind trapped in our bodies. This is why I wanted to bring awareness to Ocean's therapy because as a coach, trainer, athlete I know how much better people will feel after getting treated with CMT.
Moreover, when I was taking to Ocean she also mentioned to me her studies and training in CHI NEI TSANG. I never heard of it and was curious, here is what Ocean has to say about this modality:
"The Taoist sages of ancient China observed that humans often develop energy blockages in their organs that result in knots and tangles in their abdomen. The negative emotions of anger, fear, depression, worry, and anxiety cause the most damage.
Problems can also arise from stress, drugs, surgery, poor food and alcohol, bad posture and overworking. Chi Nei Tsang helps release toxicity, and stagnation from the organs by flushing the lymph and recirculating the blood.
By detoxifying the digestive system, food can be processed more effectively, and the bowel, kidneys and bladder function better. This massage treatment will also help alleviate neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as issues in the pelvis, hips, and legs."
For everyone reading feeling this will be beneficial, you should book a session with Ocean. She is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. She was telling me about how she has helped David Beckham and many other celebrities over the years overcome and release emotional blockages.
During her world Tour, she travels the planet staying at luxury hotels around the world offering her fitness, wellness, and therapies. For those in the West Coast, she will be making a stop in Vancouver from June to July when you can meet her and book a session.
