There is a growing awareness in the field of psychotherapy that emotional pain is held in the body as well as in the mind. This is exhibited in the developing field of somatic psychotherapy.
As a chiropractor I have focused my practice on bridging this mind-body dichotomy. For example, when a patient comes to see me, I am equally interested in their relationship with their symptoms as I am with the symptoms themselves.
Throughout my 30 year career, I have especially enjoyed working collaboratively with therapists oriented toward this perspective. What I have found is that each of our specialties enhances the healing and well being of our shared patients.
This presentation will offer participants:
*a mind and body approach as seen through my lens as a chiropractor
*somatic indicators of how our bodies hold certain patterns
*simple techniques you can use with clients who are experiencing aroused or depressed emotional states
