Holistic psychotherapy, or Integrative Therapy, is an integrative approach grounded in psychosynthesis. This type of therapy focuses on the relationship between mind, body, and spirit, and attempts to understand and address the ways an issue in one aspect of a person’s life can lead to concerns in other areas.
Those pursuing holistic therapy may, with the support of a qualified mental health professional, become better attuned to their entire awareness, which can often promote greater acceptance of the self.
Initial exercises in integrative and holistic therapy often utilize massage and bodywork techniques to focus a person’s attention on areas of tension in the body. These areas of tension are believed to be manifestations of deeply repressed emotions. Once a level of trust is established between the therapist and the person in therapy, the therapist can help the person to release bodily tension. This release often allows the person to be more receptive to numerous emotions.
