SCOPE OF PRACTICE
Definition of Vital Dynamics™
Vital Dynamics is a somatic informed, holistic life awareness and well-being process. It is based on direct experience and understanding that we are water based life forms orchestrated and evolved by natural life intelligence, sometimes called biological intelligence or bio-intelligence. It can be conceived as a field (fields within fields) of emergent coherent ordering that orchestrates bodily expression of being. Vital Dynamics™ Practitioners (VDP) use gentle touch to guide clients' engagement of their innate fluidity and sensory capacities, supporting and increasing awareness of the polyrhythmic and varietal movements of bio-intelligence as it organizes, conducts and maintains living experience.
Vital Dynamics' purpose is to support a sense of wellness, unity and wholeness of being and interconnection, which can contribute to an improved quality of life experience. The use of gentle touch and movement awareness supports self-awareness, self-regulation, co-regulation, creativity, resourcing, reorganizing, integration and renewal which the underlying flow of life intelligently orchestrates.
SCOPE OF PRACTICE
i) Vital Dynamics™ is a holistic life awareness and somatic education process. Practitioners know the limits of their professional competence and do not go beyond these boundaries. They use the Vital Dynamics® process within the scope of their training, background, current licensing and credentialing.
ii) The Vital Dynamics™ Practitioners’ (VDP) role is one of collaboration with their clients. VDPs provide guidance to their fully clothed clients through gentle touch and verbal support of their clients' processes.
iii) VDP’s are educated in anatomy and physiology. They do not treat disease or diagnose conditions, or carry an attitude of fixing. Their education and understanding of the body and biological process of life means they can support various health situations in their clients. Vital Dynamics is however a process that supports and co-operates with the underlying health and wellbeing of life. Practitioners can also collaborate with and/or refer to other health professionals if warranted. Practitioners realize they are a part of each clients unique multi-disciplinary approach that supports their well-being.
iv) VDP’s listen with open awareness to the movements and the coherent polyrhythmic expressions of life within their clients – they can recognise and acknowledge any incoherent rhythms, chronic or habitual patterns of movement, holding or constrictions and imbalances within the clients bodily tissues, perceptions and relationship with their environment, whilst maintaining their own sense of fluidity, coherency, spaciousness and wholeness. In this way the client's natural life intelligence emerges and dynamically orchestrates any corrections, resolutions and integration.
v) The process of touch and gentle guidance is supportive of refining perceptual, kinesthetic, proprioceptive, and interoceptive sensitivity that supports a sense of self regulation, co-regulation, and neuroplasticity.
vi) Bodily being is not only an objective physical event, it is an emerging process that is home to a subjective living experience which is evolving in unity with all life.
vii) The physical, emotional, the imaginary and symbolic, the cultural, the primordial, ancestral, collective and cosmic are expressions of biological processes and subjective living experience. Practitioners acknowledge and support these processes thoughtfully and gently facilitate the client to integrate these expressions as aspects of life awareness that can support a person's capacity to experience the wholeness, vitality and greater meaning and enjoyment of life. VDPs refer to appropriate professionals when it's clear a process needs support that is beyond their scope or the client is in need of a different approach.
