The reasons for many body oriented issues are mostly to be found on the emotional level and are manifesting themselves through the body. Thus, a tense back usually did not just happen out of the blue. It is more likely a side effect of a series of stressful or emotionally painful situations.
If we get to the bottom of the actual cause of the painful tensions, we can counteract or even prevent them much more effectively.
The combination of counseling (ibp process support), as well as exercises for conscious breathing and body awareness, with the subsequent massage, are an ideal and holistic approach.
