Abstract:

Bioenergetics is a dynamic form of therapy based on the teachings of Wilhelm Reich. It links physical pain, muscle tension, and postural disorders with state of mind, demonstrating that suppressed emotions, unhappiness, and anger can block energy flow and cause physical distress. Dr. Alexander Lowen, founder and prime mover of this revolutionary therapy, analyzes common complaints like headaches and lower back pain and shows how they can be overcome by releasing the muscular tension that creates them. Through bioenergetic exercise, physical pain can be dissolved and emotion released, leading to a new sense of confidence and well-being. Illustrated by many helpful diagrams, this fascinating book is the first step to a happier, healthier life for thousands of men and women.
