Fringe psychology
A type of bodywork psychotherapy, which aims to recognise the continuity and the deep connections in which all psycho-corporeal processes contribute, in equal fashion, to the organisation of the person. In body psychotherapy, there is not a hierarchical relationship between mind and body, but rather are both functioning and interactive aspects of the whole.
