Bioenergetic Stool Work in the Lying Down Position and Star-like Life Energy Pulsation

Bioenergetic Stool, Life Energy, Heart, Pulsing, Trauma


The starting point is Alexander Lowen’s bioenergetic stool work, the importance and deepness of its meanings and its therapeutic effects. Then a similar work on these principles, but with the patient in the lying position, is presented and illustrated in its meanings and effects on re-centering and connecting the person towards self-acceptance, love, inner freedom and joy of life. It has been practiced and developed by the author in her office to meet the needs of clients with fragile structures because of major precocious traumas or for clients who have been traumatized by an excessive use of technology and disrespectful invasiveness and a lack of sensibility and trustworthiness by some mass media. This kind of position is also effective from the diagnostic point of view. It is not a substitute for the classic bioenergetic stool work, but a variation to meet the needs mentioned above.
