Every time you hear about more and more about body psychotherapy, and although the same name gives us a good idea of what this branch of clinical psychology can be treated, it is easy there are many doubts about its effectiveness and way of working. So here I present this brief text which attempts to clarify these and other points. Body psychotherapy is a psychological therapy for adolescents and adults that has discovered that the incociente of which so much has been heard since times of Sigmund Freud, is in the body, and this can be seen in the various closures, tensions and human body postures. This type of psychotherapy is to make conscious and clean, the emotional content that are sleeping in different parts of the body, because in this way it is possible to live with greater spontaneity every situation presented to us in life, and even the body is presenting tangible physical changes that reflect a full and free emotional life. Body psychotherapy sessions begin taking a topic that is important for the person in the present moment and goes deeper into him, through relate the facts, but always taking into account the language of the body. In this sense, the patient needs to make aware and to allow the emotions and memories that come (for example anger, loneliness, etc.) and always observe what is happening. If you do this, you will discover that you underneath an attitude, there are one or more emotions, and behind these emotions, there is a memory that was the origin of the attitude, but with the passage of the years, remained hidden in the memory. When he is vividly recalls what happened, there are concrete changes in the person’s life..
