Peter’s gentle touch and extensive clinical experience, his ability to synthesize and choose wisely from a wide depth of knowledge, give him an almost unique ability to solve problems for his clients.
It was 1996 when Peter first had his belly “unwound”. It was profound. After a few more sessions of this abdominal touch therapy – Chi Nei Tsang – he noticed a significant improvement in his health. This gentle precise visceral bodywork – centred on optimizing function of the internal organs (intestines, stomach, liver, bladder) – effectively released physical and emotional tension and trauma.
Peter has dedicated himself to a search for the most effective global visceral healing practices. This began his training in both traditional and modern, eastern and western therapies. These studies have taken him throughout North America, and many times to India and Thailand.
His primary therapeutic training, in Visceral Manipulation (VM) and in Chi Nei Tsang/ Tao Touch (CNT), began 20 years ago. These very effective practices are so far not well known. People are more familiar with massage, even craniosacral therapy.
In the past decade, Peter’s passion for healing has prompted him to delve into other therapies. To better help those with whiplash, concussions & nerve pain, he trained in Neural Manipulation. For clients suffering chronic tension & stubborn injuries, he travelled to Thailand to learn Tok Sen. To assist those with allergies & food sensitivities he learned Total Body Modification.
Peter has become a widely respected teacher in visceral bodywork. He is a lifelong athlete Soccer, cross country skiing, qigong, & more recently, bouldering have supplanted cycling and yoga as his favourite physical activities. Peter Melnychuk is dedicated to physical, emotional, spiritual fitness for himself and his clients.
In January 2017 Peter Melnychuk was invited to work in a three day free medical clinic for the poor in Penukonda, Andhra Pradesh, India. It was a great joy to have the chance to help out twelve time zones from Alberta.
