Several years of practice have helped pinpoint areas of the body and their emotional connections. Through studies during his years toues, an osteopath has developed a technique whereby it detects and removes tissue nodes associated with emotional distress. Somato-emotional Osteopathy is a technique that allows the patient to release tissue tension that are related to emotional shocks of the past, not shock-expressed. By releasing tension tissue, we will release the repressed emotional shock.
In the womb, the fetus via the limbic system, records the feelings, the feelings of the mother. This information is put into memory in the emotional fabric. The emotions felt by the mother during pregnancy, the events observed by the baby during his childhood, culture, education, suffering daily, the trials of life ... will enroll in the memory tissue in the subconscious. In addition to psychotherapy, osteopathy somato-emotional proposes to detect and eliminate most of the nodes listed in the emotional body.
The practice of osteopathy somato-emotional is soft and not intrusive. It is intended for small children who have been faced with fear, for example what will induce uncertainty. Osteopathy somato-emotional is also addressed to adults who can’t eliminate different emotions like anger, guilt, shame, humiliation, harassment, fear of saying no, fear of daring, treachery .. . and also to adolescents who do not hide in their beliefs.
If the young person does not speak (crisis of adolescence), the body talks and this body is the vehicle that will establish contact and eliminate tension, doubts, devaluation, fear of not being loved , anger, fear of losing, to miss ... At a session of somato-emotional Osteopathy, the patient is lying on the table on the back of osteopathy, and leaves the body release tension stored in tissues for years. Thanks to an outlet, a very special touch, the osteopath will support the fascia, the tissue of the patient to better emotional let them express conflict. These nodes are areas of tension on the fascia. In everyday life, the thin skin around the meat that is cut is the envelope of the muscle. It takes three to four sessions to "see clearly" and then patients like to continue and maintain a maintenance program, to feel more spaced. An osteopathic lesion demonstrates the existence of restrictions, constraints, bottlenecks affecting bodily structures. These lesions may accumulate forming "channels of injury" have various causes.
The aim of somato-emotional Osteopathy is to relieve direct, indirect and emotional shocks that the patient has absorbed during his all life and even before it.
Not many people are aware of the interconnexion there is between pschylogic traumas and somatic traumas , they dont understand the power of psycho-somatic body response to a random situation that can for the rest of their life affect them.
Somato emotionnal work brings together manual therapy and other psycho-therapies and creates one and whole body treatment
