Guiomar Campbell: The eternal search for the inner in-sync
THE ETERNAL SEARCH FOR THE INNER IN-SYNC
Guiomar Campbell has definitely taken wellbeing to another level. With a solid career as a singer and percussionist, the Brazilian artist has been instrumental by bringing rhythm and moves to the body-health field in Toronto.
A devoted student of Oriental medicine, the spirited, creative performer has combined music and dance in revamping many therapies such as shiatsu, acupuncture, aromatherapy, and massage, creating the Biosync-rhythm. This is a technique that synchronizes the body’s natural rhythms through inventive movement, self- shiatsu and yoga.
Campbell employs a variety of techniques according to the needs of each one of her clients. Shiatsu, for instance, involves pressuring on selected acupressure points on the body. Self –massage or Do-In teaches patients to “do it themselves.” These treatments include rotations and stretches of limbs, joints, and meridians to generate energy flow by stimulating the nervous system and consequently relaxing the entire body.
Biosync is proving to be an affordable pain-killer option for those seeking relief from back, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, muscle tension, spasms, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, anxiety, depression and migraines. When it comes to infertility issues, Guiomar works alongside with Tanya Smith, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Together they investigate the patient’s health history and habits to determine which organs and meridians are out of balance to restore equilibrium.
“Our body talks to us revealing what’s wrong and healing it. It amazes me that we can combine diagnosis and treatment to change people’s lives in such a profound way.”
