Body therapy

Body therapy, also referred to as body-oriented psychotherapy, is an approach that springs from basic principles of somatic psychology. Body therapy can also mean body work, which involves working with the human body with manipulative therapy and breath work.

Body therapy focuses on the interaction between the body and mind, from the basic tenet that they work as one. In a session, a body therapist might use different methods and techniques, such as breathing and movement. Body psychotherapy will sometimes integrate theory and practice from different approaches including Gestalt psychology, art and dance therapy, neurology and biology. Based on the body therapy approach a significant number of problems affecting mental wellbeing are caused by undesirable or traumatic experiences and memories that are stored in the body. Working with the body to access and work through these unwanted or traumatic memories is the therapeutic value of body therapy.
