Tension, charge, discharge and relaxation
Each session aims to create more flow, and personal awareness of the body-mind by following four principles (tension, charge, discharge and relaxation). [see description below]
What does a session looks like?
We begin the session with identifying the tension. This is what is most alive in you, when you arrive. It could be emotional (i.e.: just can’t shake a feeling or sensation); it could be mental (i.e.: you keep re-hashing a situation or event), or it could be physical (i.e.: you have body tension, an ache or pain).
All of these indicate a block in flow, therefore we will use different approaches to open the flow, addressing what has blocked it in the first place. Some of the approaches used are: Gestalt; EMDR; bio-energetic postures; breathing techniques; visualizations; eidetic imagery, and enactment, all depending on what seems most appropriate in the moment.
This therapy is centered in the body (soma). The initial focus of healing is based in reconnecting the emotions, the mind and sensations to our body. Whilst this is occurring we also focus on strengthening the connection with the body-mind and learning to surrender to its’ innate wisdom. This allows the body-mind to naturally find a way to resolve deep rooted patterns of behaviour and/or trauma of an event.
