Developed by Norwegian physiotherapist
Gerda Boysen, Biodynamic Massage combines massage techniques
with physical exercise and psychological development.
It aims to release energy bound up in
the muscles and intestines, causing physical and emotional pain.
Much like Willheim Reich, she supported
the theory of "armouring", in which suppressed emotions
can cause muscular tension, trapping energy which may be released
by working simultaneously on the body and mind.
Treatment can be soothing and soporific
or more vigorous. Discussion is encouraged during the session.
