Dr Mosetter will lead this presentation introducing Myroreflex Therapy (MRT), a regulation therapy that for historical and efficiency reasons takes its starting point in pressing at muscles attachments – thereby influencing the tensegrity in the myofascial system both locally, but first and foremost globally, in the body. Experience shows that traumatic experiences are kept and take effect in neuromuscular pathways, which are not accessible to the explicit memory.
By applying neuro-muscular pressure point stimulation which in succession provokes self-regulation of maladaptive body schemes, it is possible to restore a healthy sense of one’s own body and re-establish neuromuscular balance in the brain and in the body, implicit and explicit memories become resynchronized – so psychotherapeutic measures can take hold more effectively.
Dr Peter Levine, author of Waking the Tiger, Healing Trauma, and Trauma and Memory, will join via satellite to emphasise how ‘Somatic Experiencing’ addresses physical and emotional trauma, PTSD, and stress related conditions, developed by Dr Levine over 40 years.
Together they will deliver on how these treatments can facilitate the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms.
This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.
1. To build a constructive work alliance in which the therapist absolutely respects the strategies of traumacompensation
and does not tackle it too early.
2. To identify the roots of addiction and their trauma counterpart in the body.
3. How to start a body treatment without overstraining the person.
4. Understanding and supporting self-regulation and how the ‘why’ in addiction self-regulation is failing.
