The interactions between body and mind are very important. This is what Body psychotherapy is about. Body therapy incorporates touch, breathing, and movement techniques to address a wide range of mental and physical health concerns that may lead people to take therapy. People experience things not only through their minds and emotions but also through their bodies.
For any individual seeking help for body therapy, the first thing we do is have a talk session. Our therapist listens calmly to what the client has to say making sure there is no communication gap. Once the talk session is done then our therapist assesses through assessments whether the client is going through presenting concerns, interpersonal relationships, loss, or any trauma and abuse. The therapist will also utilize body reading, an assessment technique that helps identify how a person’s body might be communicating crucial information. Once the therapist understands the issue the client is facing, they then perform different techniques designed to bring about a heightened awareness of both the body and mind. Every technique is tailored as per the individual’s situation. The number of sessions to be conducted is also decided as per the individual’s condition.
This holistic approach to treatment works to address concerns of the mind and body as one. Proponents of the approach believe that many issues impacting emotional well-being result from continuous repression of traumatic or harmful memories, which are held in the body.
Body therapy can help overcome headaches, insomnia, fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and body aches. Emotional releases can occur simple through safe touch and without reliving painful events.
