What is Embodied Therapy?

Events happen to us on a meta level, the mind, the soul, the body and the heart, in other words; we experience them on the physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional level; that is the same way we need to heal them.

We are not trained to listen to our bodies. We are trained to fit into a culture of capitalistic achievement to get through school and work. And all the external demands and all the external expectations and conditioning that we maybe unaware of how healthy or not it is to our bodies. 

 

We only acknowledge our bodies when we get sick and then need to go visit a GP or a doctor. The thing is in most cases our psychological health is relevant to our health. Wellbeing can not be achieved with one without the other. It is no wonder really mental health bills are sky rocketing and it is becoming the topic of the hour. 

Embodiment practices of therapy are psychological healing practices and approaches that acknowledge the body as a channel for healing through self-awareness, mindfulness, breath work, body movement and balance, visualisation, manifestations, affirmations, progressive muscle relaxation, grounding and somatic experiencing psychological techniques, integrative nutrition (emotional, mental and physical nutrition), and self acceptance. In a real live model of therapy embodiment explores the relationship between our physical being, emotional and mental processing of thoughts and energy or life within you (In ancient cultures/ Sanskrit; it is called Prana.).  

The Embodiment practices is considered in many contexts as part of or under the umbrella of Somatic Psychology (Founded by Dr. Peter Levine). While this maybe true for western psychology, it is not necessarily true for eastern psychology, as ancient cultures have been using the body and the elements of the earth as a fundamental part of healing and the path to vitality, recovery and wellbeing. 

Embodied therapy share the same assumptions of somatic psychology, which are:

  • Events impact human being on the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual being. 

  • All events have to be processed in our sensory systems. 

  • Thoughts are physiological and occur throughout the body not just the mind.
