Published Articles by Darrell Sanchez
  • Dancing with Gravity
  • Published in Somatic Psychotherapy Today; Winter 2016, Vol. 6 No. 1

  • Dancing with Gravity: Using the Tuning Board to Promote Vertical Embodiment Resources and Vertical Integration (by Darrell Sanchez, Ph.D. and Vivian Gettliffe, C.R.)
  • Published in the 2016 Yearbook of the International Association of Structural Integrators

    From the Abstract: "The Tuning Board is a somatic tool that encourages vertical integration and resourcing using a subtle, yet potent, balancing task. It can enhance Structural Integration by supporting improved alignment and somatic awareness, thereby increasing the client’s capacity to use his or her own body as a primary resource, and positively impacting psychological aspects of well-being. Vertical integration, verticality, and vertical embodiment resources are explored in relation to psychological aspects of experience. Tuning Board history, methodology, and means of impact are presented. Research is cited describing the value of standing on an unstable surface, along with preliminary research and case descriptions specifically relating to the Tuning Board."
