Reichian Psychotherapy, Somatic Therapy and Orgonomy are all therapies that work on both mind and body, accepting that durable, positive change can only happen if your whole person is addressed. These therapies first emerged from the work of Wilhelm Reich MD in the early 1930's. Reichian psychotherapy has a two pronged approach; character analysis and the release of muscle armour. Muscle armour is an expression of the personality which manifests in the way a person's body moves and in their posture. Reich established the theory of segmental muscle armouring to explain how the body establishes its psychic equilibrium. These roughly correlate to the seven chakras in Eastern Philosophy.
Simply put Reichian Psychotherapy theorises that stress and trauma symptoms are the effects of instability in the ANS (autonomic nervous system). This form of body-mind therapy is the best way to help you if you are suffering from emotional, physical or psychological trauma and distress. Restoring the body-mind's natural balance will enable you to cope, recover and live fully engage in your life, returning you to your natural equilibrium and autonomy.
