Psycho-Dynamic Body Alignment is a unique treatment combining specialised touch therapies (therapeutic massage, reflexology and acupressure), energy healing (reiki and chakra balancing), visualization techniques, counselling, metaphysical practices and use of botanical medicines and/or nutritional supplements.
This unique therapy is concerned with promoting the integration of mind and body. It is a truly holistic practice – addressing not only physical ailments and emotional issues – but also extends into the metaphysical realm of higher consciousness.
The treatment is for individuals who want to deepen their self-understanding and wish to explore the pure potential that is possible when you do not restrict yourself to a purely physical reality. The treatment is also designed to help people in varying states of health and emotional or spiritual distress.
Some people may suffer from negative mental states and associated body symptoms, which interrupt their capacity for joy and pleasure and the full participation in life. Some psychological problems may manifest within the body. For example, conditions such as stress may manifest as depression and anxiety or hypertension. A low self esteem may manifest as eating disorders. Less obvious problems rooted physically and/or emotionally, may manifest as feelings of being trapped or overwhelmed, numb or in physical pain! Often there is some sense of being out of control and loss of hope.
In contrast… in good health there is a free flow of energy through the body all the energy systems are balanced. Therefore, when the system becomes unbalanced, blockages can occur in the energy flow that may lead to physical symptoms and ill health – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Psycho-Dynamic Body Alignment addresses the problems associated with accumulated tension and stress. Working with the effects and origins of stress, it may induce deep relaxation and improve the circulation thereby increasing energy and well-being. It may also help to relieve chronic symptoms, such as headaches, tension, pain, digestive problems and insomnia.
On a metaphysical level, this therapy has the potential to help you connect you to your higher self, in a deeper and more meaningful way – as you begin the journey of “self-analysis” and become more comfortable in your own skin. As you work on strategies for boosting your self esteem and start to take control of your mind, your thoughts and your actions – you may begin to live the life you have always wanted to live, by becoming the person you want to be!
REMEMBER your physical body represents your physical reality – but does not define it – because you are more than this!
Realigning your body, mind and spirit is a powerful way to truly live well and BE in the present moment, by enjoying life and all the possibilities that it brings.
Each course of treatment is designed to suit the individual’s personality and health needs. The therapist will select the appropriate techniques to restore balance and improve overall health.
After a body alignment clients describe sensations of peace, lightness and renewed sense of purpose.
