Why Do the Work of the Body? A Perspective on Healing from a Body-Centered Approach in Psychtherapy

Why Do the Work of the Body? A Perspective on Healing from a Body-Centered Approach in Psychtherapy

This article provides a framework for understanding how traumatic experience impacts the whole organism. Distorted thought process and projection, defensive verbal expression, tension pattern, disturbed subtle energy field, inhibited breathing, and characteristically-held body posture all exhibit the nature of the specific physical and emotional traumatic experiences of the individual. Accessing the information available within the clusters of symptoms and understanding how to facilitate the opening and release of the held memory enables a more effective modality for change in psychotherapy. This author also uses her personal experience in this therapeutic framework to speak to the spiritual transformations that naturally evolve when healing of trauma occurs.
