Since 2010, Manuvision has had a department in Barcelona, offering body therapy treatments and Manuvision training, and since 2016 it has also been possible to join the two year long study programme to become a Manuvision Body Therapist. The education in Barcelona is open to anyone, who wants the English language study programme, and is structured with 5 intensive weeks a year, weekend seminars, supplemented by joint intensives in Germany and Sweden. Next group starts in January 2023.
Steffen Lundsgaard, Manuvision therapist, study coordinator and founder of Manuvision Barcelona, tells about the study programme in Barcelona
“We started Manuvision Barcelona because of a need. People from different parts of the world - Holland, France, United States, Argentina and more - asked if they could join the education, because they see a market for body therapy internationally. Especially our work on widespread mental diseases such as stress, anxiety and depression is valued and needed in other parts of the world.“ - Steffen Lundsgaard, founder of Manuvisoin Barcelona
Manuvision education in Barcelona started in 2016 with the first Barcelona based group of Manuvision therapists graduating in 2018. In 2023 we are graduating another team of Manuvision therapists. In the Manuvision House in Barcelona there is a lively environment of Manuvision body therapists who treat, train and offer courses.
Manuvision responds to an interest and a market for our form of body therapy, which extends far beyond Denmark's borders. An interest that accompanies an international movement towards a more body-oriented approach to the treatment of the mental disorders of the time, and which is also reflected in the research in Manuvision body therapy in the treatment of PTSD . The research results which will be published in 2022/23, supports the need to work through the body, when dealing with stress and other mental diseases.
