"This work is part of that heroic labor, a cousin to sitting meditation, to singing bowls and chanting monks.
Rob Kurtz, founder of Hakomi
In the past, people went to a therapist to talk about their troubles. In recent years, we have learned through scientific research that therapy is more effective when the therapist is able to treat the whole person, the body as well as the mind. This means that the therapist observes and is mindful of the signs indicating that the mind and the body are regulated and integrated, or, in some cases, dysregulated and chaotic.Therapy sessions that include body and mind may involve certain kinds of touch, if you are comfortable with that. The choice is always yours. Sessions may also include sensory techniques, imaginative exercises, and breathwork."
