What is body-oriented psychotherapy?
It recognizes that people often experience stress psychosomatically. It also assumes that many somatic sensations & conditions have a psychological component and/or psychological metaphor. For example, the very real pain in the back may be experienced on the psychological level as fear of moving forward in one s life; Or it may be the result of a fall that occurred due to rushing on the winter s ice; (stress that impeded caution). By using body-oriented psychotherapy, we help clients focus on the nonverbal communication of body sensations and reactions in order to discover unique messages that the body attempts to bring to consciousness.
