About Bodynamic

The Bodynamic – Somatic Psychotherapy and Analysis System – is a pioneering method of somatic developmental psychology and psychotherapy that integrates current research in the psychomotor development of children, cognitive and depth psychotherapy, brain research, and special emphasis on the quality of contact and on healthy relationship.
The human body is integrated into the therapy through precise knowledge of the psychological function of each muscle, based on data obtained from 30 years of systematic studies on child development and the psychotherapy experience of adult clients.

A fundamental concept of the Bodynamic System is that muscles tense up in order to accommodate the strong sensations that accompany emotions during childhood development, a condition termed hyper-responsive but under different conditions muscles may become flaccid and resigned, unable to cope with stronger stimuli, a condition termed hypo-responsive.

Features of Bodynamic

Character Structures

The noted Reichian scholar Dr. David Boadella, Director of the Biosynthesis system, has called Lisbeth Marcher “the Scandinavian legacy of Wilhelm Reich” and described the Character Structures model of Bodynamic Analysis as “one of the most advanced models to come out of the new generation of body psychotherapies emerging in Europe”, as it goes significantly beyond those of Wilhelm Reich, Frank Lake, Alexander Lowen and other somatic theorists.

Ego Functions

Several decades of research have led Bodynamic Analysis to distinguish eleven categories of psychological function, which we call the Ego Functions. Each muscle in the body, and groups of related muscles, embody a highly specific psychological content that is associated with one Ego Function, and occasionally with more than one.

Bodymap

An exceptionally precise tool for psychological assessment and psychotherapy. The ultimate working tool in the Bodynamic System is the Bodymap, an elaborate and precise chart of both resources and blockages in the client’s body, mapped in terms of patterns of elastic response in the muscles and fasciae, and correlated precisely with psychological content.

Shock Trauma and PTSD

The Bodynamic model of working with Shock Trauma and PTSD includes the body in a direct and physical way. The aim of Bodynamic trauma therapy is not only to work with the origin and lasting affects of the trauma itself, but to help the client develop new cognitive, psychosocial and physical resources that will allow greater possibilities for future action.

Other Principles

All major therapeutic modalities of the Bodynamic System – the Character Structures, Ego Functions, Shock Trauma – PTSD work, the Bodymap, etc – fully incorporate the body in the therapeutic process. Our list of somatic-verbal tools for therapy is long and includes
