Biodynamic Psychotherapy and Massage
Biodynamic psychotherapy is a holistic approach that has transformed the lives of many people by helping them to restore their natural health, peace of mind and emotional well-being. Biodynamic methods can be helpful in treating clients with many different ailments, often bringing relief, restoring peace and hope.

The biodynamic approach includes psychotherapy and counselling as well as a range of methods that include biodynamic massage and bodywork, vegetotherapy, 'deep-draining' and work with the bio-field. 

Biodynamic Theory was developed by Norwegian-born Clinical Psychologist Gerda Boyesen (1922-2005). She realised that when life energy becomes trapped for any reason through stress, shock, emotional upset and so on, it creates a new substance in the body, identified by
Boyesen as 'nervous energetic fluid'. She discovered that the body has an innate healing mechanism that resides in the gut or gastro-intestinal tract which, under the right circumstances, enables the body to digest this fluid. She named this function 'psycho-peristalsis'.

During treatment we use a long stethoscope placed on the abdomen of the client to listen to the client's 'psycho-peristalsis'. By working to get the maximum psycho-peristaltic sounds, the biodynamic practitioner can find the metabolic 'key' to unlock trapped energy and liberate the feeling or emotion that has been held in the body. This enables the client to physiologically complete emotional cycles and to resolve, once and for all, any remaining inner conflicts. As we become clear our primary personality emerges, without resistance, and we get in touch with our higher qualities and true enjoyment that life can unfold.

Biodynamic psychotherapy can be helpful if you are in pain or stressed, under pressure and finding it hard to cope, challenged by a serious illness or at a turning point in your life. You may also come for simple quality relaxation, pleasure and flow, to maintain vital health and strength and to enhance the joy of living.
