The Tensegrity Medicine™ methodology was created in 2011 by Kelly Clancy as a way to comprehensively treat clients and to educate both local and distance learners about emerging ideas related to fascia, biotensegrity, and the bodymind connection.
This cutting edge treatment and training approach is unique in that it uses the latest scientific understanding and research of relational anatomy, applied biotensegrity, trauma informed care, psychoneuroimmunology, and neuroscience. This comprehensive foundation thus informs the Tensegrity Medicine clinician in the evaluation and application of light touch strategies and somatically informed dialoguing interventions.
This individualized bodymind approach allows the clinician to utilize comprehensive person centered tools in treating the origin and manifestation of postural and pain issues while addressing the whole person in a safe and nurturing environment.
Over the years, Tensegrity Medicine™ courses have garnered national and international attention. Due to the pandemic, course work is currently being offered online. The course offerings includes short course introductory topics or comprehensive mentorship training. The curriculums continue to evolve and progress with updated course content based on our scientific progression in understanding relational anatomy and the bodymind connection.
