The following case story illustrates the empowering effect of combining Asian Bodywork with focused self-awareness methods. Knowing how to work effectively with the mind and body interface is an important specialty within the practice of Asian Bodywork. Mental and emotional issues are often primary factors in the health concerns of Westerners. These factors influence not only how we experience illness, but also our capacity for getting well.
When we help our clients explore tension, they discover limiting factors that maintain an illness. When we help them attend to the openings and relaxation, we empower them to discover inner resources and the next step towards healing.
This story is about a young woman's journey with asthma and her discoveries about how her breathing is connected with her own expectations and her dance with intimacy. Her bodymind exploration leads her to a quiet inner strength that flows like a river in her belly.
