Body Psychotherapy is a mind/body approach to counselling. It is also known as Somatic Psychology. It combines Eastern approaches to healing and Western approaches to therapy.
There are a few basic premises in body psychotherapy. Those being:
- Any event that occurs impacts our whole being-physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual.
- Humans are unique energy systems and this energy is the form and expression of aliveness. Body psychotherapy pays detailed attention to human energy.
- Feeling and expression are seen as prime components of healthy functioning. Breath and movement re-establish the healthy flow of energy in the body.
- The body can be divided into energetic segments which store different memories, emotions, issues, and traumas. Body psychotherapy can re-access any event that happened to our body.
Body Psychotherapy leads to:
