Hakomi body-oriented psychotherapy

A Reichian-based therapeutic system that combines Eastern philosophies (Buddhism, Taoism, meditation, mindfulness, and nonviolence) with Western body-oriented psychotherapy, bioenergetics, Feldenkreis method, Gestalt therapy, neurolinguistic programming, structural bodywork and others. Hakomi therapists attempt to return the client to unpleasant childhood memories, examine the experience and find strategies for new attitudes and behaviour.
