In our busy contemporary world many people are beginning to realise that to find relief from steadily increasing anxiety and tension they need to pay more attention to their bodies." Jack W. Painter, PhD. Founder of Bodymind Integration
Postural Integration (PI)® supports you in dealing with the challenges in your life in a more creative manner. The uniqueness of this method lies in the simultaneous integration of deep tissue and breath work, body movement and awareness, as well as emotional expression. This effective method opens up new perspectives in your life and enables you to increase your sense of well-being, your capacity to feel, your ability to consciously express yourself in all your relationships.
Practitioners of Postural Integration (PI)® are trained to work in a respectful and interactive manner with their clients. They bring into the relationship with their client professional knowledge and experience and the ability to appropriately share their personal feelings and attitudes. This characteristic creates a unique symmetry in the relationship between practitioner/therapist and client, which allows the use of deep neurophysiological abilities for personal change e.g. mirror-neurons. This symmetry also allows the PI-method to work with pre-verbal states of consciousness, e.g. in working with body image disorders and pre-/perinatal trauma issues.
