Body-Centered Psychotherapy

This term describes therapeutic approaches that integrate a client’s physical body into the therapy process. At the foundation of the mind-body connection, basic skills are explored to assist the client to use the body as a resource to decrease anxiety and increase sense of grounding and calm.

Also referred to as Somatic Psychotherapy, this process highlights the intimate relationship between the human body and the psychological well-being of a person. Body-Centered Psychotherapists view the body as a resource for self-discovery and healing.
