PLEASE NOTE: This web site, the Cuyamungue Method and ritual postures is not intended to be a replacement for conventional care or as a reason to postpone seeing a doctor about a medical problem.. Those who are at health risk should consult their doctors.
A healthy nervous system is required to participate in this method. If you are dealing with any sort of mental or emotional disorder, are undergoing psychotherapy, are experiencing seizures, or or have any neurological disease, we suggest you consult your physician and/or therapist before proceeding with the Cuyamungue Method.
People with physical limitations may not be able to participate in certain postures or poses. Everyone’s body is different, and the use of ritual postures should be based on individual abilities. Carefully selecting appropriate postures is an important step toward helping you practice the Cuyamungue Method safely. In a workshop setting, ask about the physical demands of the type of postures to be used and inform your instructor about any medical issues you have.
The Cuyamungue Method is a non-invasive practice that is considered to be safe for healthy people. People with mental health issues or psychiatric problems may experience some worsening of symptoms; however, evidence suggests that this is rare. Please disclose any such condition to your instructor / workshop leader before proceeding.
