BA is grounded in an understanding of the importance of the body—and the energetic underpinnings of body and mind—to psychological development and emotional health. The approach includes development of insight/understanding, expression of feelings and re-establishment of energy flow in the body.
BA practitioners focus on the psychological issues each person possesses and the way those issues are manifested in the body. Practitioners believe that through verbal conversation and physical exercises the patient will be able to evoke positive change.
BA practitioners address conflicts through emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and physical levels. BA focuses on the whole individual.
