A pioneer in this field, Alexander Lowen, M. It is a therapeutic technique to help people get back together with the body and enjoy the life of the body to the fullest degree possible. BA starts with the reality of the body and its basic functions of breathing, motility, feeling, and expression. BA differs from other forms of therapy in that it combines analysis of personality and character with body techniques and physical exercises to recognize and release chronic muscular tension - a necessary step in overcoming feelings, behaviors, and attitudes that detract from life. BA recognizes the ability of the body to heal itself, and promotes that process. Lowen wrote of the purely verbal therapies that they may "help a person become conscious of his tendencies to deny, project, blame, or rationalize, [but] this conscious awareness rarely affects the muscular tensions or releases the suppressed feelings. Bioenergetics is an adventure in self-discovery.
