to need-based Body-Trauma-Psychotherapy - without psychotropic drugs, assessment and suggession.

                         Thinking unfolds from the Soul - from Body Sense to Cognition

> As female doctor I work from self-awareness towards self-regulation - without time pressures in private practice. The therapy guidelines of legal insurances are out-dated. Alan Fogel's book Body Sense is a very important contribution to up-date therapy procedures. My German translation of the title gave me big insights > body psychotherapy. After medical school, further education in psychiatry and family time, freedom came to follow my calling as physician and more.

                                                    Nothing has to remain the way it is

> As trauma therapist I care for a well-supported ethical process from self-regulation to healing. The information to connective themes of this website want to help clarify therapy experiences. Understanding does not happen in the past or future, but from the here and now in the present moment of lived experience - trauma healing calls for community: in connection with people and methods. 

              Is the Old passed on - Tradition arises, comes the New along - Wonderful emerges

> As native Hanseatic, the breeze of the wide world from the Free Port of Hamburg in Northern Germany and I experienced other cultures. Nowadays, after international study stays I brought the New/Old from Medicine/Healing Arts to my other home, the Odenwald: from California a method with German roots 1 and a textbook 2 I translated; old lore from the Andes, Chile, the Amazon for our modern times 3; quantum physics from the light body 4.
The precious freight of our life time needs to be used, by recovering the forgotten and reframe it:

The healing art of touch - The dynamic of the nervous system with complex interactions - shamanic energy medicine of the chakras and archetypes, following Carl Jung.

Diagnostic - and therapy methods in my practice:

The bodywork methods operate in natural connection: the touch of Rosen Method Bodywork opens self-awareness - reaches into the body's energy field - will be re-organised with biophoton re-alignment mirrors - bring about self-regulation through emotional experience. The denial or violation of embodied self-awareness has serious consequences: from functional-, regulatory disorders to diseases.

With bodytherapy the consequences are covered, handled and prevented!

A range of trauma consequences, functional- or regulatory disorders with increasing health problems:

depression - panic attack - irregular heartbeat - cancer - anaesthesia - miscarriage - abuse - anxieties - despair - trauma - speechless emotional state - distress - sleeplessness - migraine - fatigue - cry babies - slipped disc - loss - surgery - rape - posttraumatic stress disorder - pain - bullying - asthma - high blood pressure - cheerlessness - grief - personal experience - indigestion - birth stress - adverse childhood experiences - loss of attachment - violence - side effects of medical procedures 

Traumatised individuals dramatically lack adequate care in the health care system:

For your inspiration:

From Molecules of Emotions, by Candice B. Pert, p.273-274, Simon & Schuster UK, 1999

"My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed - which is to say that the biochemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely - all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior. This, I believe, is the state of unhealed feeling we want so desperately to escape from. Drugs, legal and illegal, are further interrupting the many feedback loops that allow the psychosomatic network to function in a natural, balanced way, and therefore setting up conditions for somatic as well as mental disorders."   

From Your Life in My Hands - A Junior Doctor's Story, by Rachel Clarke, p.200, Metro Books, 2017:

"...combined medical rigour with remarkable gentleness. ...he unfolded their hands in. both of his, seemingly in order to comfort and connect with them ... and discussed their illness. ... with that simple human touch, he was simultaneously taking their pulse, assessing their hydration states,scanning their hands for clues of illness, and appraising whether their were sick or well. ... he was covertly diagnosing them. Hard, effective medicine cloaked in gentle humanity."
