- Psychological problems: especially anxiety, but also depression, phobias, panic, trauma.
- Functional problems of posture, breathing, voice and movement: such as back and neck pain and breathing problems, but also scoliosis, improve body balance, chronic pain, RSI, whiplash, voice problems.
- Strain with specific somatic cause: complaints to heart and lung patients, but also in people with neurological or internal organ problems such as Crohn’s disease.
Even if there is no obvious physical cause for your symptoms to find, may ‘vague complaints / unexplained complaints “a trial of AOT clarify whether your symptoms are stress-related and thus respond to treatment.
How it works
In four sessions, the indication for breath and AOT will be determined. Together with the therapist you will be looking for a form in which a clear and concrete observable relaxation occurs. Instructions can be either lying, sitting or standing. They are basically for everyone feasible and consistent with attitudes in daily life. Also gentle manual techniques by therapist are possible.
In this four times is becomes clear if the problem responds to the relaxation. It becomes also clearly what the nature is of the relaxation response: it is mainly a mental or physical stress reduction? Concerns it the quality of movement or breathing? Is an increased awareness of stress or recovery of energy? Also you can understand tension and relaxation are important.
Often a series of four times is sufficient, but sometimes a larger number, wider spaced sessions is necassery.
