A holistic approach to healing through body, mind and soul
We often say “Rest in peace” when a person dies, but what if you could rest in peace while you are still alive? You may lead a busy life and have a lot on your mind, such as worries about family members, health, money, relationships, exams or the detail of something you need to work out or remember. Sometimes you may not be able to sleep because of all the thoughts going through your head.
Many things can make us feel uncomfortable in our bodies - pain, irritation, restlessness, nausea, panic. Sometimes we become numb, stuck in the freeze response, and don’t feel anything at all.
In Biodynamic Medicine we recognise the link between psyche and soma, mind and body. We recognise that the biochemical effects of shock or traumatic experiences often remain held in the body, and how we can eliminate these effects once and for all by completing emotional cycles. This means talking and working through here and now, in a safe environment, what we weren’t able to express or complete there and then so that we end the pattern of recycling negative thoughts, behaviour or relationships.
As well as this “talking therapy”, Biodynamic therapists work with specialised massage methods, to establish the psycho-peristalsis, the body’s innate healing mechanism which processes and eliminates the effects of stress or trauma. This can bring relaxation, a feeling of letting go, relief of pain, settling, and often feelings of bliss or “heaven on earth”
Rest can sometimes be seen as a waste of time, when in fact it is crucial for our wellbeing. If you are always busy and on the go, or don’t get enough sleep, your body does not have chance to process, rest and digest, recharge, to strengthen your immune system.
Biodynamic treatments can be helpful both in freeing your mind and allowing your body to sink into deep rest. There will often be an experience of "floating awareness" when the brain goes into alpha state, and it is as if you are asleep although aware of what is happening.
Rest in Natural Great Peace
Rest in natural great peace
This exhausted mind
Beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.
