Listening to the body changes triggered by emotions plays a key role in learning to live them consciously.
In the Muscle tensions the muscles “tense like violin strings” have the function of inhibiting emotional processes.
The emotion would represent the “preparatory” phase of a feeling. For example, anger, with its preparatory tension, generates, among other things, a “preparation” for attack, that is, for actual aggressive behavior. So how can this preparation for action be inhibited? By making strength on oneself by means of a continuous and therefore spastic contraction of the muscles; all this over time leads to a variation of normal muscle physiology which is evident in a spastic and therefore continuous contraction.
Due to the chronic contraction, the emotional process, the anger, are not totally eliminated, indeed blocked, but are always present, even if the subject is not aware of it. Muscle contraction becomes “chronic” contraction (or real contracture) which blocks, from the periphery of the body, any space-time evolution of the emotion itself. This is therefore what “tense muscles like violin strings” are: chronic muscular contractions which aim to prevent the subject from “living” and “feeling” consciously and “acting” his emotions.
In this regard, clinical experience teaches that “dissolving” these chronic contractions is not easy, because they must be considered in the same way as defense mechanisms, which have become stable components of the individual’s personality.
The subject therefore tends to automatically prevent external mechanical manipulations from modifying these muscle contractures. It must be repeated, it is a question of real resistances to change, which in some way have become stable constituents of the personality. Furthermore, again on the basis of clinical experience, it appears that, often, when the manipulation of the contracture is successful, it reappears.
There is no “ideal” posture that is the same for everyone but a healthy and functional posture. Such a posture is one that gives the individual good support with rebound and weight off the feet and from the feet to the ground.
For example, it has been observed that women who suffer from menstrual pain, discharge their body weight in the inner area of the foot; that the elderly without future prospects put the weight on the heel which concretely represents more than ever the past, now certain and reassuring, etc.
Posture is therefore the way of “being in the world”, it is not only the result of complex neuro-physiological and bio-mechanical mechanisms, but it is also the expression of one’s way of managing emotions.
Undertaking the Bodycode System course of study means discovering, analyzing, memorizing all the emotions and sensations that every physical movement generates over time.
Only the knowledge of these elements leads to a conscious and intimate relationship with oneself.
