Metamorphic Touch & the Family

Giving a metamorphic technique session to a child

Would you like to find a way to support your family in a way that is fun, relaxing and deeply loving?

Metamorphic Touch is adaptable to the demands of family life.

The Metamorphic is a gentle and loving touch on the feet, hands and head which I often teach to mothers wishing to support their children. It works brilliantly within the family because it’s so incredibly adaptable. You never need to out time aside to do, as it so easily incorporates into your regular activities. You can work on your kids while they watch a DVD, when you put them to bed, and even when they fall down and bruise their knee. Parents tend give short ten minutes sessions here and there, whenever they can fit it in, and this is the perfect amount when working on children.

The vulnerable member & the family shadow.

Because every family has shadow stuff, shared patterns which are have not been dealt with, most families have a vulnerable member who unconsciously serves as ‘release valve’, a conduit through which some of the hidden patterns release.  Traditionally we call this person the “black sheep of the family”. This is the child who struggles because on the unseen level they are processing for everyone else. This can be the child who wets the bed, the anorexic teen, the kid with behavioural problems amongst other ways that this will express itself.

When this child starts receiving sessions, ideally from their parent, this role may transform. When this happens, the other members of the family will start to feel whatever they have been suppressing. Ideally everyone in the family would receive sessions. This allows the whole family to transform and start operating at a whole new level.

Every child is energetically linked to their parents, and the childs behaviour is intimately connected to the parents state of being.

A few years ago a woman brought her 8 year old daughter for a session. The girl would wake up, sometimes up to three times a night, needing to eat. This had been going on for years. During her session she suddenly blurted out ‘mum, I need to et because you don’t eat enough’.  It was then I noticed just how thin the mother was. During pregnancy, she had been so hungry that her weight almost doubled: the pattern of the child trying to correct the mothers inability to nourish herself properly was there right from the beginning.

When working with a child it’s important to give the parent a session as well,
if they are willing. 

In the 1960’s, Robert St.John, the man whose early insights led to the evolution of the his work Metamorphosis, then Gaston Saint Pierre’s Metamorphic Technique and now Metamorphic Touch, was approached by a woman whose her six week old daughter had Down’s Syndrome. St.John, a naturopath and reflexologist, was known to have developed a practice that people hailed as miraculous. He taught her how to give daily sessions to the child, and asked her to come for a weekly session where he would work on both mother and child. She followed his instruction to the letter and over the next year her daughter’s eyes came closer together and the large bump on her neck disappeared completely.

The girl, now in her 50’s, went on to mainstream school, university, and eventually left England to marry in America. Although genetically she will still carry the Down’s  gene, she is longer activating it’s expression.

Children transform very easily.

Children appear to transform a lot faster than adults. The patterns have not been held in place for years, the ego has not created a sense of self around them, and the mind is not as entrenched as it is in an adult. When receiving session they seem to be very grounded in who they are and not fall into the wrong social group and destructive activities.

Transformation comes from their own Life Force. 

Transformation is our nature and our birthright. Metamorphic is a catalyst to the Life Force within. This means that any movement that arises comes from the person themselves, not from the technique, and not from the person who is giving the session. When we give a session we are simply a catalyst for them. We become the earth to their seed. The seed has infinite potential for growth, but it needs the earth as a catalyst, to unleash that potential.

When we give a session we are saying ‘Yes’ to Life!

When you give a session, you are trusting the very Life Force of your child: that it knows exactly how to grow itself and what to become. This practice of detachment, of stepping aside to allow them a free space in which to transform, is a profound act of love.

If you feel this practice could work well within your family, I teach workshops all around the world and Skype workshops for anyone who can’t get to a live workshop.

Much love, Dominique

In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my  teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
