In most cases, physically oriented therapies may look like any other type of psychotherapy; talk about what concerns you, harass, frighten or problems or places where you feel that you are stuck. From this point, the therapy continues to develop in a certain direction. Which approach will choose a therapist, which direction and pace will be to develop therapies, depends on your current physical, emotional, mental, volitional and spiritual capacities and awareness of your inner world (internal states, processes, conflicts). Also, at the beginning it takes some time to learn and develop a relationship of trust between therapist and client. Only when the client feels somewhat safe in the room and with a therapist, it opens the possibility for deeper emotional work.
At the beginning you have some questions and instructions, such as “How do you feel in your body?” Or “Breathe”, may experience as irrelevant, but it is actually related to the simple process of raising awareness of your own body and discovering how we feel in it. This process opens up a large area of unexplored information that we generally neglected, and they are there for a specific reason. Most of us are mainly used to “feel the head,” or mental identify and understand, but knowledge alone without connecting to the emotions and the body rarely can lead to deeper changes. The therapeutic process is something that lasts and what develops, but for the ultimate change required is patience and time and determination, effort and will. The effects of treatment can be felt immediately, and this in different areas of life, but to transform patterns, distorted beliefs and traumatic experiences a longer time (several years), and the duration depends on the client. Of course you will eventually themselves able to notice how physical sensations associated with your feelings, how you feel, “here and now”, what is your reality in the body, emotions, mind and spirit, which are your limits, what you want and what not you want, what you are going to interact with other people or situations and the like.
When we find ourselves in difficult times, most of us only vaguely aware of the overall experience and then fall into repetitive patterns of behavior and accordingly we process various pieces and parts of the pain and frustration that is life. Also, this experiences and conclusions from the past stored in the subconscious, imposing and project onto the current situation, problems and the people we meet. Awareness of your own body and emotions in it can naturally lead to changes in the body (different posture, movements and breathing). Sometimes these changes lead to the opening of strong feelings and internal conflicts that most of us eventually learn to control and repress, but also can lead to positive feelings of support, strength, earth, peace and satisfaction.
Work on yourself through therapy allows us to what was stored in the subconscious, and we thought, divided, separated and hamper us to achieve a better life (old behavior patterns, fears, lower self and image), now comes into the field of consciousness and eventually may be transformed. The therapist relies on its senses, personal and professional experience, and you can expect compassion and understanding, as well as support on their own journey of discovery, acceptance and transformation.
There are three important “rules” related to therapy:
1.therapy must not be emotional load
2.therapy must not be a financial burden
3.therapy must not be a time load
If you ignore those rules, treatment can become ineffective.You need to come to therapy in comfortable clothing that allows easy and comfortable to move. Some therapies consist only of conversation, but some include other elements (start the body, for example).
