The source of the discomfort (holding tension patterns) may be structural (accident, overuse, wrong posture) or emotional (overload), coming from internal organs, from joints, from CranioSacral System, from general toxicity, from reaction to food, stress in our lives... We all do have a natural ability to heal and self correct - let's call it Inner Wisdom.
By tuning into the body and trusting person's Inner Wisdom, the treatment is serving to create more feeling and awareness in the body. That inner awareness becomes information for Inner Wisdom, and is restoring the proprioceptive feedback loop between the tissue and Central Nervous System. As a result, the body is regulating the function of Immune System, Digestive System, Nervous System, metabolic processes and functions of internal organs. The person is restoring his/her ability to function and the body is engaged in the healing processes.
All the structural release is happening as a result of precise tuning into the body and precise manipulation of tissue and communication between practitioner and client.
After the treatment I am giving my advice on self-care to the best of my abilities, so that you can continue your healing.
Boadella (British psychotherapist) says that the body’s tension patterns can be considered a person’s “frozen history”. Recent research may confirm that the body “remembers”. As therapists, one must have respect for the “knowledge” that is embodied in the patient’s own body. The body is the carrier of a person’s history. Everything we are exposed to as human beings falls into the body, meaning everything we are exposed to falls into the body and is expressed physically. Every emotion has its physical expression because it involves movement and impulses. This can be expressed through bodily conditions such as muscle tension, posture, breathing and movement patterns. Influencing these bodily conditions can affect the person both emotionally and experientially.
We must understand both with emotions and the body. What the body wants to hide is often what it shows most clearly. The body carries with it what has happened to us, all the emotions we have experienced. When tension in the body is released, forces are released that allow the body to initiate a self-healing process. Something happens when what has happened to the organism comes into its consciousness, and consciousness comes into contact with the emotions. If the consciousness does not come into contact with the emotions, we will unconsciously follow the old ways of responding (Bøhler).
Trygve Braatøy (Norwegian scientist) emphasized the connection between mind and body and emphasized the central role of breathing in the balance between health and suffering. He believed that suppressed effects were bodily, falsely-cleansed, muscularly arrested phenomena. Braatøy says that the body hides experiences. Both the experiences and the bodily reactions may be inaccessible to the person himself (cf. recent research). Alienation from the body means that the body has the experience and the knowledge that the person him or herself is not aware of.
To get a complete understanding, it is necessary to study how emotions are manifested in the body. No disorder is only mental or physical. We need to look at the totality and the interaction of the psyche and soma. David Felten (Moyers, 1994) states that brain and mind are two expressions of the same thing. They are two parts of the same whole. In therapeutic treatment, we must look at the whole human being. Both physical and mental symptoms are the body’s signals.
