Our ability to show up with full awareness and feeling is often limited by tension and emotional numbness. We get caught in chronic stress that represses our ability to feel vital and alive. Embodiment practices help us to give ourselves more freely and expressively to our work, our relationships, and our pursuits of growth and enjoyment.
Like other psychotherapeutic approaches, you and I will begin by talking about personal concerns and problems. From there, our work relates to your unique physical and postural responses to these issues. Tapping into this - often overlooked - world of information, you will unlock additional insight and understanding, and begin the transformation of shifting habitual patterns.
Body psychotherapists rely on their awareness of posture, movement, and breathing while remaining curious about how these may interact with the individual’s understanding of emotions and beliefs. Sessions may include breath-work and body movements such as clapping, kicking, dancing, vocalizing, or any movement - small or large - that energizes the body and allows us to feel.
