Psychmotor Therapy consists of therapeutic conversation, bodywork and specifically tailored exercises.
It’s a holistic type of body psychotherapy, which integrates the physical, psychological and social aspects of the client.
It is based on the mind/body connection and allows you to:
Psychomotor Therapy nourishes the nervous system, assists the client in deep physical, psychological and emotional healing and provides tools to an increased body awareness.
Through manual treatment (bodywork) the client is able to release tension of the body. The autonomic nervous system is assisted in expanding its level of functioning, stress levels drop andoxytocin is released. Oxytocin is a neurotransmitter, which helps reduce anxiety levels, aids in healing and supports a state of relaxation and well-being. The manual treatment (palpation) is directed at balancing the elasticity of the client’s connective tissue and muscles, which can result in pain relief and tension release. The manual treatment helps the client to strengthen their body awareness through a deepened sensory connection to the body and an increased alertness to body cues, which in turn regulates anxiety and stress. The verbalization process, which is part of the manual treatment, helps the client integrate their experiences, strengthen their mind/body connection and gain awareness of limiting beliefs, experiences and behaviours.
