Emotional trauma is often “stored” in the body. This condition persists until we have therapeutic support and the ego strength and body awareness to experience our deeper or “split off” feelings. Some analytically focused body therapists believe that the diaphragm and abdominal areas “hold” emotional pain stemming from early disturbed attachment relationships.  The journey towards wholeness beckons us, where possible, to re-experience these early feelings and integrate them relationally and intra-psychically.  This experiential workshop reviews energetic  or physical approaches for working with the diaphragm and abdomen.  Specific “myofascial  release holds” are introduced to supplement our bioenergetic body work. We will also use small pilates balls and acupressure balls to work with abdominal tension. Objectives: 1)  To identify emotional and analytic issues related to the diaphragm and abdominal areas. 2)  To supplement bioenergetic body work with basic techniques from myofascial release. 3)  To introduce the use of small pilates balls and acupressure balls for abdominal body work. Learning: 1)  How to work bioenergetically with stress positions, sound, and vibration to open up the diaphragm and abdomen. 2)  How to use a basic myofascial release hold for the diaphragm. 3)  How to use pilates balls and acupressure balls for abdominal body work.
