Belts of Tension
The first session is a general one without any area of particular focus. After completion, you are invited to partake in a series of sessions where you work through seven “belts of tension”. As defined by Austrian doctor of medicine and psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, each belt focuses on a different segment of your body where trauma is stored, starting with your head and working your way down to the pelvis and legs.
The belts are as followed:
Thoracic (includes arms)
Pelvic (includes legs)
Working through the segments and releasing the belts in this order is purposeful and systematic. Clearing the upper belts first creates a pathway for trapped sexual, life or kundalini energy to release, rise up through the body, and be experienced, which contributes to our vitality and overall health.
