What is Biodynamic Massage?
She agreed with the hypothesis that unexpressed emotions and uncompleted cycles of feelings and actions can get stuck in the body. Through her development of Biodynamic Massage therapy she discovered it was not only food, but feelings, emotions and experiences that were digested through the gut too.
Biodynamic Massage is an invitation for you to focus on your body through different techniques of touch from the therapist. This will enable you to experience how it feels to be touched on the outside of your body, and how it feels on the inside. This can be the beginning of a journey for you to digest, complete and resolve stuck cycles of feeling and can promote more self-understanding, spontaneity and choice in your life.
How Does it Work?
Biodynamic massage involves different techniques of massage or holding either on the skin, tissue, muscle or bone - directly on your body or in your energetic field. Some techniques are relaxing and soothing and some are invigorating and enlivening. A specific technique is selected for you after your consultation at each session. This is in order to help you to self-regulate and allows your natural body rhythms to take their course.
Biodynamic massage takes into consideration the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. This contributes to the depth that Biodynamic Massage can offer. Trust is an important ingredient in this work that is built on by the therapist being open, present and sensitive to comments and non-verbal signals from the client. You will be invited to gently become aware of how you experience your body during the sessions, e.g. sensations, feelings, or lack of them, memories or images. This will help you to learn more about yourself. Being more in touch with yourself can be an organically transformational experience as it can open the way for you to follow what it is you need to do.
In the first session you will be asked to say a little about your life and medical history. All information is treated as strictly confidential.
During the massage you can be fully or partly clothed, whichever feels more comfortable to you. You will also be able to hear your own peristalsis or ‘tummy rumblings’ through the electronic stethoscope.
Although after one session you may feel some benefit, it is recommended that a sustained change is only made possible by regular sessions over a period of weeks or months.
