In the course of our life we aquire conscious and unconscious patterns of behavior and movement that are part of making us who we are. Even when some of these patterns restrict us, we believe we can't change them – because “that's just us”.
- Suppressing or censoring emotions like anger, shame or sadness.
- Confronting pain with tightness and tension (clenching teeth, any kind of “relieving posture”)
- Overreaction when challenged (losing the ground under your feet, getting a big lump in your throat, making yourself small)
By raising and focusing attention on the body, the Grinberg Method® helps discovering and stopping these restrictive patterns. The awareness of these patterns is supported by different qualities of touch and by verbal guidance.
