Carey Benenson Taussig D.O. (IT) is an Osteopathic practitioner, professor, and certified graduate of Boston University and the College d’Etudes Osteopathique (CAN.) Teaching and working both in Italy and in the U.S., she is also an affiliate of the national Italian society ROI (Registro degli Osteopati d’Italia.)
She first made her mark as an educator when her biodynamic visceral manipulation program was featured by Bastyr University in 2016. At that time, she was also published in the National Publication, Massage Magazine, and was recognized for creating a synergetic fusion between the biodynamics and the traditional philosophies originally established by the late 19th-century bone setters and grandfathers of Osteopathy and visceral manipulation including the Founder, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still as well as Dr. Barber and more.
In her teachings, she brings in the component of asking the viscera which body the strain is imprinted upon within the three bodies. This three-body concept was originally recognized in traditional Osteopathic teachings where it is taught that we have three bodies: the structural body, fluidic body, and electromagnetic body. She teaches also about the space in between the bodies where we can journey beyond the matter to invite or be invited to dialogue with matter in different phases of life and development. This often allows an opportunity to shed the ancestral strains that can be translated through the generations through the ground matter and through the grid of the DNA.
Having also a science background, Carey helps the student keep their feet rooted in the anatomy offering the possibility to experience the liquid state of the continuum and the constant of energy in her teachings. With this, she stays footed in the anatomy, and in her classes, she outlines the influence of the artery, capsule, tissue, scar tissue, vessels, and nerves that can have a primary influence on the functionality of the organ (dense) or viscera (hollow organ.) The matter and the position of the structures count in their functionality potential.
In the fall-winter 2019, he taught concepts of biodynamic visceral manipulation in Washington, DC (USA).
At the same time, Carey refers often to the poetry in nature as a way to mirror a true reference point to maintain the fulcrum without exhaust. She acknowledges the power of the visceral spine being more influential at times than the vertebral spine and lectures on the resonance potential of certain key point structures to maintain the tidal patterns of homeostasis.
Carey is highly intuitive, studied also with grandmaster physicians and practitioners worldwide, and has studied extensively with the Native American Church. She is known for her extensive work with some of the most complicated cases involving the brain and nervous system, the heart, autoimmune disorders, chronic and acute pain as well as her extensive understanding and experience in pediatrics and pre and post-partum care. Her graduate studies gained a great deal of attention when she went on to develop a highly effective manual therapy protocol to help patients relieve symptoms related to Lyme disease and auto-immune disorders.
She has published articles on Visceral Manipulation in Massage Magazine.
She has lectured side by side with the Department of Defense on the importance of the microcirculatory system and has recently been developing a Forest Bathing program outside Florence in Tuscany, Italy where she resides as well as a Healing Through Art with the Mystics program that will become available in 2022. She offers her biodynamic visceral manipulation program internationally online, with Centro Na.Me. in Florence and with selected schools in the U.S. She also teaches self-alignment courses based on traditional Osteopathic principles as well as dancing with the Anatomy, inspired by her learnings with Emilie Conrad, Founder of the Continuum Movement program
Carey resides and practices in the studio and also consults patients online as an intuitive healthcare advocate. She works with bioresonance and with many shamanic principles. She is also a proud and happy mother of two, partner, and loves any activity or travel involving the sea and the ocean.
