Parts Work Therapy is a form of therapy that’s based on somatic psychological principles. Somatic psychology focuses on the body and posits that mental or emotional wellness problems can manifest or reside in the body or within specific body parts as physical ailments like pain or stiffness. Body psychotherapy applies therapeutic, holistic wellness practices in order to facilitate healing and wellness.
During the counseling process, some patients describe that they carry or feel a specific emotion in certain parts of their physique. Many patients and therapists also note that responses to feelings and stimuli can be felt in specific parts of the body. When a person recognizes that an emotional or mental response can also affect them physically, they can learn ways to recognize how these issues can be worked through. Using parts work therapy as a means to understand trauma and other internal issues is a valuable tool for identifying the root cause of a person’s discomfort.
Parts Therapy Hypnosis
Hypnotherapy may be included in parts work therapy to help identify a person’s internal conflicts. When a patient is in a hypnotically-induced receptive state, the presiding practitioner and the patient can apply or change behavioral patterns that have allowed a conflict to manifest in a patient’s body.
