Biodynamic massage is a psychotherapeutic form of massage concerned with the integration of all aspects of an individual - physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual within the context of an individual's life and relationships. It is derived from methods used in Norwegian physiotherapy and was developed and brought to the U.K. by Gerda Boyesen, psychologist, physiotherapist and analyst.
Biodynamic massage rests on certain theoretical principles, which it holds in common with other therapies -
* People are perceived as energetic beings
* Health is apparent when there is a free flow of energy in the system
* Given the right circumstances individuals are believed to have the capacity to self heal and to self regulate.
* Illness is regarded as being out of harmony with our self and our surroundings.
* Past and present may have a contribution to any symptom.
Rather than trying to cure an illness, my aim is to understand with you the meaning and message of an illness, and in this process symptom relief may come about through creating a new balance within yourself and life generally.
The basic premise is to communicate or make non-verbal contact. It is a way of relating to each other that transcends the actual method being used. Through this relationship, you become more able to relate to your own inner (bio)dynamic for self healing.
