Body-oriented psychotherapy allows you to work with the patient's problems ("frozen" feelings syndrome, psycho-emotional stress) through body contact procedures. The body is the shortest path to the unconscious, and therefore to the root of the problems. After undergoing a course of body-oriented psychotherapy, patients have increased self-confidence and self-esteem. A kind of bridge is built between actions and emotions. A person becomes more open, sociable, stress-resistant.
Body-oriented psychotherapy allows patients understand the sensory part of their personality, makes it possible to master the necessary skills of self-control and understand the basic principles and advantages of sober life. In addition, the methods used may be relevant in the treatment of psychosomatic disorders, which led to unresolved emotional problems. You need to understand that this is not a medical medical massage, where the pain and muscle tension in the place of the "application of the hands" of the masseur are mainly relieved, and not manual therapy aimed at working with the musculoskeletal system and muscle corset. This is a completely independent technique, which includes non-contact effects on the body (breathing practices, physical exercises).
There are no strict contraindications to body-oriented psychotherapy. But, as in the case of other methods, this technique requires caution in the presence of psychiatric diseases in the patient.
