What is Harmonic Resonance Bodywork?

Pause and ask yourself: “How would my life change if I were able to move more easily?”

Harmonic Resonance bodywork allows you to move more freely with less pain and tension. You’ll feel looser, deeply relaxed, and have greater mental clarity.

Harmonic Resonance Bodywork, based on Trager, is “movement medicine”, a heart centered, pain free healing therapy which is very effective for restoring mobility after injury, boosting immunity, and helping with stress through relaxation and meditation .   It is a blend of the gentle rocking movement therapy of Dr. Milton Trager MD, Massage, Sufi and Buddhist healing methods as well as Matrix Energetics. It’s a wholistic bodywork, invented in Victoria in 2010. You are fully clothed in flexible clothing such as yoga clothes or soft pants and top.

Victoria BC Client Reviews

Jennifer Hodi-Cannon

What a gift this last session was with Ian of Harmonic Resonance Bodywork. I came to the session feeling stressed and lacking power and vitality and by the end of the session I felt alive again. I left empowered and knowing that I could handle the challenges I was facing in life.

Ian has such a gentle presence that my body calms when I am near him. The movement of his bodywork, enabled my body to reset itself with ease. With Ian’s help, I was able to release energy that I was in my heart field and unplug my sacral chakra.

This session was the reset that I needed for my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being.

Thank you Ian!

Laura Kaye Moore

Ian’s technique of combining Trager work ‘rocking’ with massage has been deeply relaxing, and induces a rejuvenating euphoria that leaves me feeling centered and in touch with my authentic self. Thanks Ian, for your loving care and respectful attention!

***** ***** *****


I see Ian regularly for Harmonic Resonance Bodywork sessions. They are soothing, relaxing, aligning & Rejuvenating. I like being fully clothed while receiving the treatment & the heated table is nice!

Ian’s work is always respectful, gentle and satisfying. I will always go back!

Pat Nichols

” This is a public note of thanks to Ian and a recommendation for everyone to read. I have had a swollen, inflamed & arthritic knee which has been acting up for over a year now. It doesn’t like to be straightened, nor pressure on it, nor being stressed or bent in any way. The daily pain makes me tired & tense. So I went to Ian for his special kind of massage. He offered me his unique mud pack treatment for my knee & an electric pulse treatment that he developed which I couldn’t feel but he knows that it’s working quietly on another level. Ian spent quite a bit of time with me. I could finally relax and let Ian “do his thing”. And I love the spiritual consciousness and prayers that he brings to his practice. My knee was so much better afterwards, I was really happy I had gone to him. This kind man just wants to help & heal people! What a concept! lol… Thank you Ian for offering to help, for your kind heart, your skillset developed over many years and for all your special additional treatments which are unique to you. I am very grateful for your commitment to the common good and to me as a small piece of that. Namaste”.

Local Client Shannon

“From the moment I met Ian I was treated with respect and a warm welcome. He was very good at explaining his process and helped alleviate my nerves by assuring me I could notify him at ANY TIME, during the session if I needed to stop for any reason. Ian is a good listener and asks many questions to begin with while taking time to not make any part of the process feel rushed. I felt very cared for and comfortable in his care for this delicate work and would recomend him for anyone wanting to explore this healing modality.

Frances Litman of Victoria

“Thank you Ian for introducing me to your Harmonic Resonance Bodywork. It really helped lessen the tension I had in my back and neck. Your suggestions for optimum health were very helpful too. I feel you are someone who has a lot of first-hand experience and knowledge to share, plus you are a gifted healer and Trager practitioner.”

Darwi Odrade of Victoria

“Had chronic joint pain for years which I thought I would have to live with for the rest of my life. After the first session I could feel my body healing. And after a few sessions, I regained mobility and strength that I thought was not possible. Harmonic Resonance is true healing!”

***** ***** *****

Jess Kisby of Victoria says:

I went to ian for a harmonic resonance bodywork treatment for a few sessions and i felt completely relaxed and balanced during and afterwards. I was new to this type of holistic health treatment and was amazed at how calm and rested my body felt afterwards. Definitely a unique style and highly beneficial to my overall well-being. I noticed that i felt energetically and physically aligned between treatments. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to feel completely at ease and free from pain.

Dr. Lycia Trouton of Victoria

“From knowing Ian and his wife, Barbara, as neighbours, for almost a year — I can attest to the fact that Ian’s ethics are in the right place. So, “safety first”!

Ian works out of an Artist Warehouse-type of building. His “spiritual” private massage-table office area is at the back of the warehouse space (and a larger electronic office) via a nice waiting area … complete with a cosy Scandanavian Design lamp. I looked up at his father’s United Church Minister’s portrait above the table … Then, I relaxed and “tuned in” to the changing New Age or World Music.

Ian is a talented healer whose brand of bodywork is helpful. He is a generous soul and I can recommend him for his training and “seeming” energy work. I understand that he writes for certain e-publications about his process. He seeks out new paths for this new era where people like me, in the Expressive Arts, are searching for alternatives to match other modalities and Western Med.

David Sweet of Utah says:

For a long time I have dealt with problems centered on specific ligaments and tendons that connect my right hip. I move heavy underwater mining components which resulted in a previous injury. Recently, I felt as though I had a pinched nerve there.
First of all, Ian shared a thorough explanation of the process of Harmonic Resonance Body Work. He then explained how his Harmonic Body Work session may help my condition. The session went along very comfortable and relaxing. Not once did I feel any discomfort to my hip.
After the session I felt an absence of tightness or pinching at the injury site.
Later that day I hiked on uneven terrain along the coast for over 4.5 hours. Bending,squatting, and sitting gave no signs of pain. As an unexpected benefit, I had a continuing abundance of physical and mental energies.
For the last several days I haven’t noticed any pain in my hip.
Guaranteed I will return to Ian’s Business if the need arises. He has certainly developed some very detailed skills and accomplishments in this field. Additionally, his personality pairs nicely with the profession.
I am totally convinced that Harmonic Resonance Bodywork is effective,quick acting and legitimate.
Many thanks Ian!

Krysty McIntyre of Victoria says:

Thank you, Ian Faulkner for the wonderful session! I couldn’t get enough and had to get the full hour XD This therapy was intimate without anxiety and was like being rocked by a mother or father full of loving intent. I felt lighter and the world seemed brighter afterwards. Very good healing!

Sarah Norrad of Victoria

At first I did not know what to expect from this blend of (Trager and Sufi) bodywork, but quickly felt at ease with Ian and his therapy. The music that he allowed me to choose from to start our session was beautiful and the prayer he began our work with moved me. I felt nurtured and respected thoroughout. Harmonic Resonance Bodywork felt like a gentle therapy and Ian an intuitiive and receptive healer.

26 year old Victoria woman dance instructor S.W. 

“I have had a lot of injuries over the years because of my job as a professional dancer. As I have gotten slightly older I found that what once were little aches turned into constant pain. I didn’t think much about this body work and frankly thought it wouldn’t have any effect on me. After my first session though I felt different. More balanced and would be how I would describe it. The amount of pain was noticeably reduced and I continued to feel much better for a while after. When the pain resurfaced I went back to Ian for another session and after this one again I felt much better and this time the pain stayed away. Ian is great at giving tricks and exercises to do that are very effective at keeping the pain away. It works. There’s really no other way to say it. During the session I felt very calm and respected.

I appreciated how Ian talked through everything and was constantly checking in to see how I was feeling and if I wanted anything differently or felt uncomfortable. Very professional, very spiritual, very effective.” S.W. (Dance Instructor)

Victoria woman Sally R.

Ian’s sessions are a great way to explore your body’s states deeply and open up blockages that may be affecting your quality of life. Ian made a recommendation that provided a ground-breaking discovery about my long term chronic health condition, which no other practitioner could help me with. I am now squarely on the “healing path” and am very grateful for the role that Ian’s skillful support and intuitive insights have played in my recovery.

Ana Hesse of Victoria 

“This is the best massage I ever had!”

***** ***** *****

Victoria Chiropractor: 

“After your first Harmonic Resonance session, I experienced some very unexpected and welcome improvements. Your protocol zeroed in on some old injury sites in a hip, lower back and ankle areas. The main thing was a completely balanced sensation with my gait. For example the left hip (hurt in a snowmobiling accident) now had the same freedom as the right. The left foot felt like it was planting normally, meaning that the arch felt ‘relaxed’. There were sensations over a three day post session period that make me think you are affecting something neurological. I  also look forward to employing the exercises you showed me. As you know, I have already recommended your gifted care to some friends and neighbours. Thank you Ian.”

-Clay Campbell, B.Sc.,D.C.,

Peter Tongue

I recently had a Therapeutic Harmonic Resonance Bodywork session with Ian Soutar. Ian has combined some very powerful healing modalities to match his own gifts and the result is a very powerful yet gentle experience. Ian immediately put me at ease and I was quickly able to let go and allow him to do the necessary body work. Ian solicited feedback every so often to ensure I was comfortable with the process which involves some hands on rocking as well as gentle touch. I was totally relaxed throughout and felt thoroughly uplifted at the end. I have waited a few weeks to see how well the affects have lasted and I can happily say I remain in a vibrant, revitalized state, feeling more flexible and relaxed. I highly recommend a session with Ian.” Peter Tongue, Science and Spirituality Educator see:  https://www.petertongue.com

Harmonic Resonance Bodywork Details

Harmonic Resonance bodywork is a blend of the gentle rocking movement bodywork of Dr. Milton Trager MD, Massage, Sufi and Buddhist healing methods as well as Matrix Energetics. 

Oil is not normally used, making the therapy available to people clothed in flexible clothes, like yoga clothes. A hot coconut oil version of Harmonic Resonance Bodywork is popular among those who like a traditional massage approach blended with Trager. 

The bodywork style uses gentle, rhythmic and enjoyable wave-like movements that pass through the body. The “rhythms” are based on the client’s own natural body resonances. All parts of the body are energized by continuous wave-like harmonic movements that bring deep relaxation, neurological improvements, healing and enhanced mobility. 

It induces a meditation state and can be helpful to those learning to meditate. I try to work in a state of meditation to encourage a harmonic resonance with the client through touch.

Soft flexible clothing is recommended such as is used for yoga. Clothing is optional for the coconut oil massage blend. It’s your session, feel free to make special requests for your healing. 

People report that Harmonic Resonance bodywork has helped them physically, reduced pain, speeded their own healing and induced a positive state of being that lasted.

I completed professional training for Trager Bodywork through the Trager Institute in California back in 1990. The healing modality was invented by Dr. Milton Trager MD in the 1920s.  Trager Bodywork is a cross between massage and movement education and is similar to the Feldenkrais Method. Trager is a popular therapy in sports too, to assist with injury recovery. 

I am currently a certified Trager Practitioner registered with Trager Canada.

Information on Trager Bodywork is available through the Trager Canada Website:  https://trager.ca
