JILL RUNNION, N.R.T
B. Jill Runnion has been an Educator, Trainer, Physical Therapist Asst., and presently the owner of SYNAPSE. This practice is built on an unconventional approach to healing called Integrated Structural Manual Therapy. For the past 25 years she has developed her manual skills working in the more “subtle systems” of the body.
Moved here to the Teton Valley 12 years ago where she is specializing as a Nervous System Recovery Therapist (N.R.T). Jill’s ability to profoundly listen to one’s body, as the dysfunctional patterns reveal themselves, supporting and assisting them to free up, is truly her gift.
Through highly developed proprioceptive, sensatory abilities she enters the bodies systems, entraining with them. Whether it be the Nervous System, the Musculoskeletal and Fascial system, Circulatory, Viscera, etc. feeling minute details that distinguish between the neural impulses, restrictions in the vascular flow, or whether it is finding lack of motility in an organ system or to a specific brain structure, assisting it to re-organize and return to a more balanced state where it can communicate with increased flow, ease and without extra static. Just as some people can hear and taste remarkable nuances, Jill can feel and entrain with the bodily sensations of another. Techniques to clear and open nerves for improved flow will allow the client to experience themselves as more “in” their body, more physically aware, with increased body sensation and access to experience ones feelings . The intention as the practitioner is not to have an agenda of their own to bring about change but instead sense into and work with the individual’s own rhythms, augmenting and assisting their body’s innate intelligence to take corrective action. The body then enters a place in which it desires to find its way to open what was once restricted and having difficulty flowing. If disconnected due to physical or emotional trauma the body will recoil and become armored thus decreasing it’s ability to feel on a sensory level, which coincides with the individuals emotional and spiritual being.
In her words:
"By facilitating nerve flow it literally frees up and increases the potential for one to have a greater “felt sense” of themselves. Creating a clearer sense of having a full inside connection and being able to live from inside out. With this deepened felt sense and integrated connection is established and one can start to work with their own bodies self-correcting potentials."
"I have observed in my client’s nervous systems a direct link between a pulsatory movement, warmth, the vitality in the actual tissue to be concomitant with such things as increased emotional release and an awareness to an issue they were blind to that had stored itself within the body. As the emotion is revealed the tissue literally transforms and an increase in flow becomes evident both to practitioner as well to the clients awareness."
