In our busy contemporary world many people are beginning to realise that to find relief from steadily increasing anxiety and tension they need to pay more attention to their bodies." Jack W. Painter, PhD. Founder of Bodymind Integration
Energetic Integration® supports you in dealing with the challenges and experiences of limitation, frustration or trauma in your life, in a more creative manner. Energetic Integration® helps you to change in every part of yourself -- in your body feelings and thoughts as well as in your capacity to live fully in your social environment. While Postural Integration® (for more details website on Postural Integration®) - in the process of release and integration of the protective mechanisms laid down in your muscular and myofascial chronic tension patterns - is more focussed on the reorganization of the myofascial planes, Energetic Integration® is more focused on the reorganization of breath and life energy as it moves through a self-regenerating energetic wave. Energetic Integration® helps you to explore, claim and be creative in the energetic expressions of your existence, whatever life scenario happened to you. Energetic Integration® encompasses powerful methods of Body Psychotherapy and Holistic Bodywork.
Energetic Integration® is a form of working psychotherapeutically with the body to re-establish the free flow of energy. Energetic Integration® works with the freeing of the armouring present in the bodies tissues, as well as of the mental and emotional processes related to it. Working with the breath and how it reveals the mechanisms of protection and defense enables the person to become conscious of their energy flow and its blockages, interruptions and imbalances. These tend to be directly linked to old anger, pain, sadness, traumatic events held in out-dated reaction patterns and hidden memories put out of conscious awareness. When these early or traumatic experiences are integrated, the client can develop healthier and more appropriate ways of being and doing. An important aspect of Energetic Integration® is working with the breathwork cycle known as the Energetic Cycle, a concept developed by Jack Painter. Helping to complete it facilitates the regulation of the energy flow, and a wave of freed energy creates new consciousness and possibilities in the bodymind and the interaction with others and the world.
A very particular addition to the Reichian discovery is the common functioning principle in all living matter: an underlying similarity among differences.
The use a wide range of integrated mind and body- oriented approaches including body-sensing, breath work and cycles of charge and discharge, expressive movement, gestalt enactment, bodymind typologies and character analytic processes.
Energetic Integration helps individuals become aware of themselves in their body and to empower them to change themselves.
