What is Bioenergetics?
Bioenergetics Analysis was created and developed through the work of Alexander Lowen in the second half of the 20th century. It is a form of body Psychotherapy that is used to allow the human being to live their potential in all aspects of their lives. Bioenergetics is based on the understand that there is a very close relationship between the body and mind. Trauma, stress and strong emotional experiences that are not dealt with in the moment become stored in the body. This will eventually create a physical tension or body amour which inhibits our capacity of spontaneous movement and the capacity to feel good. The Bioenergetic therapist works with the individual by reading the body and the associated emotions and then supporting them to let go out of the negativity that is blocking the free flow of energy. Specific Bioenergetic exercises are used to release these physical tensions through a process of breath, movement and emotional release. Through the practice of Bioenergetics one will find themselves more relaxed, spontaneous and able to experience large amounts of pleasure in our bodies. “You are your body” – Alexander Lowen.
