The following excerpt is from the online free read self help book, Be Your Own Therapist.
There are many bodywork therapies available to help heal and
free the body. I personally have tried a few of these methods.
Based upon my experiences I don't have a specific type to
recommend, but instead some general comments. Most bodywork
therapies attempt gently or more forcefully (ask any potential
practitioners whether their methods are gentle or more forceful)
to change your body by physical manipulation in the direction of
enhanced well-being and wholeness. This manipulation is an
attempt to eliminate physical and/or psychological problems that
manifest in the body as stiffness, dullness, coolness,
misalignment, lifelessness or muscle knots. They are usually
successful in the short run. The result often feels great!
Unfortunately, such changes often do not last because the
bodywork only loosened the associated trauma knots. To untie
these knots sufficiently it has been my experience that bodywork
therapies also often need to incorporate words and emotions in
addition to bodily manipulation.* My opinion is that one needs
to deliberately seek after and elicit words and emotions for
such bodywork therapies to be lastingly effective.
|Success Tip: You will be more likely to succeed if you give yourself concrete praise every time you perform a behavior you are trying to acquire.
There are some bodywork practitioners who would say that such
short term bodily changes showed the need for more body therapy
so that your body would "learn" over time the right way to be.
My experience suggests that this learning sometimes happens and
sometimes does not. When it doesn't, the consumer spends extra
money without satisfactory results. This is a trap for some
bodywork therapists and clients: they need to keep returning for
more bodywork. Otherwise, the evidence of their trauma knots
(i.e., muscle knots, stiffness, pain, etc.) returns. Just
because I have pointed out a possible trap for some
practitioners does not mean that most are so ensnared. There are
many available bodyworkers who regularly and routinely elicit
the words and emotions that will help to permanently loosen
trauma knots. If you are considering a particular bodyworker, I
suggest that you ask about this issue.
If the idea of bodywork appeals to you, I do recommend it.
Compared with conventional talk therapy, bodywork is often less
expensive, since most bodywork therapies last a few weeks
instead of many months. For someone who is uncomfortable about
being touched, the experience of just one session will often
have lasting value. For someone whose trauma shows up as many
physical symptoms, such work can be particularly valuable. Many
can benefit immensely just by becoming more aware of their
Finally, while erotic massage might not be considered
"professional" bodywork, such an experience can have permanent
lasting value for those who have tended to deny or reject
aspects of their sexuality. If nothing else, erotic massage can
feel wonderful, whether or not it is done by a significant other.
