The primary body of our being is our Spirit. When the Spiritual Body is healed the physical and mental will come into balance. Bringing the auric fields and chakras up to the intended levels of frequency in order to heal the dis-ease the physical and mental comes into balance. After all our physical body is a hologram used by our Spirit in order to obtain and complete our contracts here on Earth.

Body Psychotherapy focuses on the body as a means to access thoughts, feelings, emotions, memories, trauma, spiritual connection, lower self and higher self in the process of unravelling the complex issues disturbing one’s peace of mind and ability to let go and be free. Through body psychotherapy, we become aware of the subtle messages received by ourbody and the many postural overtones that affect our attitudes, emotional reactions and responses received from others.

Body-oriented psychotherapies address life issues by taking one’s entire body, mind and emotions into account. Talk therapy alone can only access parts of us that our conscious minds are aware of. By working directly with the body, emotions and memories stored in the body can surface and be worked with. Healing is deeper, quicker and longer-lasting. Body-psychotherapy is wonderful for working with all emotional issues as well as somatic problems that may have emotional origins.

Body-Oriented Psychotherapies Description

* This article is updated daily from Wikipedia. It may contain minor formatting errors.

Body psychotherapy,* also called body-oriented psychotherapy or somatic psychology, is a branch of psychotherapy,* with origins in the work of Pierre Janet, Sigmund Freud and particularly Wilhelm Reich who developed it as vegetotherapy.

History

Body work has always had a somewhat marginal position within the psychotherapies - something perhaps not unconnected with the tendency for charismatic leaders to emerge within it, from Reich onwards.* Object relations theory has arguably opened the way more recently for a fuller consideration of the body-mind in psychotherapy.*Reich's work on the segmented nature of the body armour - "The muscular armour has a segmented arrangement...always transverse to the torso, never along it",* he proclaimed - was extended by Alexander Lowen in his Bioenergetic analysis and by John Pierrakos in Core energetics.* Lowen claimed that "No words are so clear as the language of body expression".*Subsequently the Chiron approach added influences from Gestalt therapy.*

Branches

As a result, branches (or methods) of body psychotherapy are often diverse, tracing their origins to the work of the founders of the particular specialities: Bioenergetic analysis to the work of Lowen & Pierrakos; 'Radix' to the work of Chuck Kelley; 'Biosynthesis' to the work of David Boadella;* 'Biodynamic Psychology' to that of Gerda Boyesen; 'Rubenfeld Synergy' to Ilana Rubenfeld's work; 'Body-mind Psychotherapy' to a development of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen's work, and 'Body-mind Centering' by Susan Aposhyan.* and many others.

Many of these 'founders' were influenced by the work of Wilhelm Reich, but not without adding and incorporating the methods of a variety of others besides.* Syntheses of these approaches are also becoming accepted and recognised in their own right (viz: The Chiron Approach: Chiron Association of Body Psychotherpists *).

Trauma

Body psychotherapy is one modality used in a multi-modal approach to treating psychological trauma, particularly PTSD and C-PTSD.*

Recovering a sense of physical Personal boundaries|boundaries through Sensorimotor psychotherapy is an important part of re-establishing trust in the traumatised.* Blending somatic and cognitive awareness, such an approach reaches back for inspiration to the pioneering work of Janet, as well as employing the more recent work of António Damásio.*The necessity of often working without touch with traumatised victims presents a special challenge for body psychotherapists.*

Organisations

The European Association for Body Psychotherapy (EABP) has a searchable bibliography of body-psychotherapy, containing over 4,000 entries.*There is a recent review of body psychotherapy research.*

Cautions

The importance of ethical issues in body psychotherapy has been highlighted on account of the intimacy of the techniques used.*
