I wonder if members of this forum have any knowledge/experience of discharging the negative physically felt 'energy' ( for want of a better word!) in adulthood as a result of childhood sexual and physical abuse.

One can do any amount of primal/deep feeling therapy to rid their psyche of the residue of lifelong repressed and unexpressed feelings, but what of the body? Is there a particular 'therapy' to rid the body of the physical imprints of these abuses which appear as chronic psychosomatic illnesses? Or is the psychotherapy sufficient for both psyche and body?

Interested in hearing other people's ideas.

When I had my crisis at eighteen I got my hands on Jean Jenson's book, with a foreword by Alice Miller. I combined what I learned with a recent article I'd read on the Chinese meditation technique of Qigong.

It was, and continues to be, a very physical experience - I have discovered and released a lot of muscular cramps over a ten year period. It seems never to end.

To sum up, for me, self-primaling has been a very physical experience.
