Relaxation programs are known for their versatility, cost-effectiveness, and ability to help people obtain skills to regulate their mental states and promote and maintain health. Self-Active Relaxation Therapy (SART) is a body-oriented approach to psychological rehabilitation that grew out of the suite of movement tasks developed in the Japanese psychotherapy known as Dohsa-hou , or the body movement method. The program for SART is designed to stretch, twist, and release areas of the upper, lower, and whole body through a set of movements which are guided by the practitioner and performed "self-actively" by the client to empower them to learn to recognize points of tension in the body and act on their own to achieve a relaxed state...

This paper introduces the Bodymind model of Art Therapy and delineates the processes through which it has salutary effects on individuals coping with a variety of health related challenges. The goal of this model is to articulate how activation, reorganization, growth and reintegration of the self can emerge from bodymind processes activated by art therapy. It provides a framework for the conduct of research that will test the key theoretical mechanisms through which art therapy benefits clients. We expect this model to be a spring board for discussion, debate and development of the profession of art therapy...

Basic to all motile life is a differential approach/avoid response to perceived features of environment. The stages of response are initial reflexive noticing and orienting to the stimulus, preparation, and execution of response. Preparation involves a coordination of many aspects of the organism: muscle tone, posture, breathing, autonomic functions, motivational/emotional state, attentional orientation, and expectations. The organism organizes itself in relation to the challenge. We propose to call this the "preparatory set" (PS)...

INTRODUCTION: The new bodymind theory describes unity of body and mind as a quantum process, which can go back to embryonic period of life. METHOD: Authors have worked out tandem hypnotherapy method regarding bodymind theory. Tandem has two meanings: (1) a multi-seater bicycle, (2) a mosaic word: Touch of Ancient and New generations with a Dialogue Experiencing Oneness of Minds (TANDEM). Hypnotherapy, psychodrama, family therapy, Hellinger's systemic-phenomenological approach, and, the holding-therapy can be viewed as precedents of the method...

According to Erich Fromm, the productive character expresses what he called the life force in ways that are, by nature, artistic in quality. His valuing of the vital and the artistic, fueled by this life force in our potential to be human, serves as the cornerstone of his model of psychoanalysis. Gilbert Rose, author of Necessary Illusion: Art as "Witness", also has identified the parallel between analytic and artistic processes, building on the assumption that the therapeutic alliance and the aesthetic alliance are one and the same...

This article discusses the relevance of Candace Pert's Molecules of Emotions (1997) to the development of bodymind medicine and argues that Pert's research and conceptual analysis provide the missing link connecting the messages of the mind to physiological effects in the body. The research and analysis also present a fundamental challenge to both the reigning body of medicine and the scientific commitment to so-called objectivity by positing a human organism that can act upon itself with thoughts and feelings--that is, through subjectivity...

One of the most challenging areas of scientific investigation is to determine the connections of the human spirit, emotions, love, attitudes, meaning, and purpose with physiologic and pathophysiologic alterations. Fundamental changes must occur in the current health care system and in research models so that cardiovascular patients, their families, and health care providers are presented with new strategies for prevention, stabilization, or reversal of the devastating effects of cardiovascular disease. The current biologic, unidimensional, reductionistic, technologic approach to the treatment of heart disease must be expanded to include the psycho-social-spiritual dimension...

This article has focused primarily on the etiology of CFP and TMD that begins extrinsic to the stomatognathic system and may represent the causative factors behind continued patient complaints after medical and dental intervention. A close professional relationship between the dentist and physical therapist is essential. The knowledgeable physical therapist, through direct interaction with the patient's bodymind, can assist with facilitating change, restoring function, and increasing awareness. New ways of efficiently posturing and moving cannot be learned readily until old bodymind patterns are recognized...
