Biodynamic massage is a psychotherapeutic form of massage concerned with the integration of all aspects of an individual - physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
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.
Her theory was that the peristaltic action of the gut was a way that the body processed and released stored emotional energy and toxins. She called this ‘psycho-peristalsis’, and as such would listen to the peristalsis of her clients as she massaged them.
Biodynamic massage rests on certain theoretical principles, which it holds in common with other therapies -
* We are all energetic beings
* Health is apparent when there is a free flow of energy in the system
* Given the right circumstances we all 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.
Biodynamic massage is suitable for anyone with stress related or psycho-physiological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, general aches and pains, arthritis, headaches, lowered immunity or those who are lacking in energy and/or motivation. It can be particularly helpful if you have digestive or inflammatory issues such as IBS or allergies.
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.
Using attuned touch and a stethoscope we can work together to release old emotions which can help you become more self-aware on both a physical and emotional level..
