ADVANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL WITH OUR EXPERIENCED TRAINERS
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.
Postural Integration® has an orientation on personal growth, with the aim to support and to stimulate the individual in the use, cultivation, and development of his/her sources and potential through self-exploration and systematic self-realisation. In doing so, a person is better prepared for the many challenges that life offers!
Postural Integration® has a salutogenic (able to cause human health and well-being) orientation, that promotes health, wellness and fitness, consciousness of health and a health-promoting lifestyle through counseling and health-coaching. Being well-informed, self-responsible and the capacity to take action, are key to a balanced and healthy life.
Postural Integration® has a clinical orientation, that is curative and palliative, trying to restore health and/or to diminish pain and suffering through our tested clinical methods and strong therapeutic interventions. Postural Integration has furthermore a critical contribution to the culture, for Postural Integration is an emancipatory discipline.
Postural Integration is a form of Bodymind Integration, which can be also practiced in the context of a Body Psychotherapy*.
