How does bioenergetics work?

Bioenergetics make use of postures. Each posture opens up a specific muscle group to allow it to release the stored charge that has been bound into it through trauma or conditioning.
You maintain the posture, breathe deeply through the mouth, and keep feeling your body. These three things, done together, progressively release holding patterns and dead zones from the muscles.

Is it a “quick fix” therapy?

Nope. Bioenergetics works deep in the muscle system, the physical correlate of our unconscious mind. Whilst you may notice major changes happening soon after you begin practising, you also need to be willing to maintain a practice for a considerable length of time to get the best results.

Do I need to feel all the trauma that happened to me in order to heal?

No. Whilst it’s important to be open to feeling whatever happens whilst you’re doing Bioenergetics, mostly it works on an energetic level to release the charge bound into the muscles through past trauma.
