History of Bioenergetics The Body Mind Therapy

new york city psychotherapist bodypsych
Bioenergetic Analysis has its origins and history in psychoanalysis, the 'talking cure', created by Sigmund Freud. Wilhelm Reich, Freud's student, saw the effects of early childhood emotional trauma on the minds and bodies of his patients, and developed techniques to open the blocked energy necessary for healthy development.

Reich's protégé, Alexander Lowen founded Bioenergetic Analysis in 1956. Lowen believed that emotional problems in living should be addressed through a combination of in-depth talk, and a deep exploration of the language of the body - that is, how we breathe, move and express ourselves physically.

Recent findings in neuroscience have validated the importance of working with the body in psychotherapy. Bioenergetic Analysis is a unique modality of psychotherapy, time-honored and dedicated to psychological and emotional growth, aliveness, pleasure, love, autonomy and a rich connection to others.
