In private sessions with clients there is less distraction and the benefit can be deepened awareness of their own behavior. This includes clarity of how reactions are dependent on both thinking and locked in movement patterns. The two are locked into behavior!
Clients searching for a change in their relationships will enjoy the simple movement techniques I introduce to increase their focus. Some will begin to alternate between talking and movement sessions. Both these types of sessions are designed to increase the success in their progress and are compatible.
Clients who come for improving their movement and reducing pain will find themselves integrating their emotional reactions that are keeping them in their pain and strain.
Both types of clients discover physical movement and emotional reactions are married together in their reactions. They come to know the value in learning their automatic habits. If someone is able to observe their habits then there will be change.
One example is a client who discovered one of the largest muscles in their body and that they had not been using them. They didn’t even know at first how to engage it! This client originally came to improve their relationship connections. To relieve their tension and increase their breathing patterns I introduced small movements for them to experience. Afterwards our sessions began to alternate between the two types of sessions, movement awareness and talking awareness.
They discovered a large muscle that was dormant and not being used. They realized the strain that this put on their whole body in the effort to move in any activity. They also realized they did not even know how to activate this muscle. There was no connection to the brain signals.
Then came the awareness of tension being held in another set of muscles. The control that went into holding these muscles stopped any ability to engage these new ones! The control of this other set of muscles was directly related to emotional behavior! The balance then came from intellectually knowing one is safe and supported to begin to release control.
I love my work! When clients can experience their journey through learning techniques their journey is more concise and clear. There is beauty in waking up the parts that have no brain awareness! When this client stopped using these big muscles the brain lost the memory of it. Therefore there is a disconnection until they relearn they have these muscles and how to use it. If they are not aware that they have stopped using it, how will they even know about it?
This is something that cannot be learned through outside sources and activities. It takes a control environment of focused somatic learning.
When the education stops change begin!
