“In clinical practice of psychotherapy capacity is a marked focus on awareness and bodily movements, such as helping patients to become aware of their bodies, to teach them to follow their physical sensations and to implement physical actions that promote self-esteem and competence.

In the exploration accomplished within the setting they also learn to monitor how their physical sensations, postures and physical movements affect their emotional States and influence the words and content that use and share treatment.”
