06 Nov WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE BODY PSYCHOTHERAPY?
► Body Psychotherapy, more than other approaches, emphasises our ability to be our body, understanding it as a system of physical, mental and emotional functions.
► By using the vitality and wisdom of the body, we can endure and overcome difficulties such as anxiety, depression, panic, and trauma.
► Recent research into the neurophysiology of emotions justifies psychotherapeutic approaches that use the body.
► Famous researchers such as Gerald Edelman (Nobel Prize in Medicine), Henri Laborit, Antonio Damasio and others have shown the close relationship between bodily experiences and the unconscious functions of the lower brain. Our emotional and mental life, as well as the formation of the ego and consciousness, depend on and derive from them.
► The positive changes that any psychotherapy seeks in the mental-emotional world of the individual, when supported by the mobilization of the body, create deeper corrective experiences in a shorter time, as new learning is felt at more levels of the Self.
► Somatic Psychotherapy positively redefines our nature as part of the larger natural world (ecological dimension), in which the body is identified with the Self. Not only is it not an “inferior” part of it, but it is a safe place that connects us to life.
