Alexander Lowen was a seminal figure in somatic therapy. Working with Wilhelm Reich he early understood the importance of the body in psychological healing. The body became living record of personal struggles, traumas, and other ingresses on the wholeness of the human experience. Other books he wrote outline the conceptual underpinnings of his theory.
"The Way to Vibrant Health" despite its unexciting title and unpolished artwork remains a work of genius for all those who seek path to healing. Lowen believed that stored energy in the body was the residue of traumatic experiences. The easily-performed exercises outlined here offer a release from the effects of this residue. By placing the body in slightly stressful positions, breathing fully, and holding the positions for a few minutes, Lowen believed, the body would begin to express itself through "vibration". These vibrations permit expression and healing.
I began to do these exercises a month ago. My body's response was more intense than vibration; I would have to call ii spasming. . At least in my case there has been no resuscitation of ancient memories. Rather it's more akin to feeling pure energy expressing itself and discharging. If this approach calls to you, please give it a try. This slim book can be the way to your joy.
