The Buttafly Technique Training Course

Learn how your clients can benefit from this outstanding technique

This course is for Allied Health Professionals and massage therapists keen to embrace effective and innovative ways to support their clients.

The Buttafly Technique is effective in giving relief for many different types of back pain and can also be used for postural correction and as a preventative aid. It can significantly ease the chronic nature of spinal problems and reduce recurrent episodes.

The Buttafly Technique is accredited by the Complimentary Medical Association and endorsed by the award-winning Physiotherapist, Dr. Fatemeh Rezaei-Sajadinia.

Tap into the natural intelligence of the body

The Buttafly Technique refers to the specific positioning of the Buttafly in supine lying where the weight of the pelvis is taken through the ischial tuberosities while the sacrum and coccyx float freely in the indent.

The unique way in which the body is both supported and off-loaded facilitates a natural release of the spine according to the intelligence of the body.

“Through my extensive research with the Buttafly Technique, it’s become clear that the majority of people artificially hold their posture in some way. In 99% of cases – I’ve treated over a thousand now – there is a change in the alignment of the spine and this would not occur without good reason.

“This goes a long way to explaining why many people have no idea of where their body is in space, and struggle to find a “neutral” spine – even those who regularly practice yoga or Pilates.”

For Non-Specific Low back Pain and Chronic Pelvic Pain

The Buttafly Technique really comes into its own for chronic conditions. Rather than something external being applied or exerted, an individual is able to self-manage their symptoms at their convenience, drawing on the wisdom of the body.

The technique is very gentle and for the treatment of back pain, there are specific guidelines for how to promote saftey and maximise effectiveness. It’s not uncommon for people to have an emotional response to the treatment, and therapists must be prepared for this. It’s crucial for appropriate aftercare to be given.

I attended a two-day class with Loulou on how to best use the Buttafly for therapeutic purposes and in yoga class. I found her to be very informative and passionate about the use of Buttafly Effect and its ability to help people.

I’ve gone on to use it successfully with patients suffering from low back pain and specifically coccydynia.

Our lessons were on Zoom and I found her teaching to be clear and the two days were paced beautifully.

The training with Loulou was time well spent in many ways. Although at first, I couldn’t imagine how we would spend two days on the topic, as soon as we began I realised that this was to be much more than I had expected. We were not simply going to be learning about the benefits and uses of the Buttafly products, but we would learn from Loulou’s experience of working with clients and students as a bodyworker, physiotherapist, healing practitioner, and yoga teacher. We came to understand through hearing her experiences and exploring for ourselves why the Buttafly is such a powerful tool. And while in two days we could not cover Anatomy in any depth, I learned a great amount about the human body in those few hours in the context of teaching yoga.

We explored for ourselves, and with others in the class, about our own postural strengths and weaknesses, the individuality of our bodies, and how to support our own progress. We worked with idea that ‘less can be more’ when the right interventions are made in the appropriate way.

Loulou taught us that if we support the body well, the body’s intelligence will allow a postural release to occur naturally. We learned that the subtlest of shifts or changes to our posture while sitting in Sukasana or lying in Savasana can have a big impact on our experience.

I think we all came to realise that too often, the fundamentals of posture can be too easily overlooked in classes, or problems are even obscured by notions of what is the right way to be doing something. And of course we learned how the simple unique design of the Buttafly can be an invaluable aid in working with our students or clients. The days flew by and I am looking forward to doing more.

I love introducing new clients of mine to the Buttafly… What it does in releasing spinal tension for a lot of clients suffering from back pain is phenomenal.
