Body awareness training runs like a golden thread throughout the treatment. With sensory-motor amnesia in a certain area, it can feel like a dead zone. There is very little awareness except for the sensation of pain. For example, a simple movement such as rolling the upper arm in and out is not possible anymore; the brain has lost voluntary control.
Throughout the treatment, we not only release tight muscles that caused restrictions and pain; we also facilitate more body awareness and motor control in these areas.
We also look at daily movement habits such as walking, sitting, and lifting, and reflexive responses to stress that contribute to painful conditions.
After releasing the painful, tight muscles, we need to gain awareness of what we are doing.We learn to feel how and which muscles we involuntarily hold tense in our daily life and how we can let go of these tensions or how they can be avoided in the first place.
