How does it work?

Gerda Boyesen’s unique insight – which she called the 'great secret' of vegetative release - recognised that the gastro-intestinal tract or 'gut', as well as digesting food, is also engaged in, and vital for, the digestion of the by-products of nervousness and stress.

These by-products accumulate in the normal fluids of the body and change their composition, becoming known in biodynamic terms as "energetic nervous fluid".

This is so called because, where an impulse or conflict is held in the body, the energy also becomes held or encapsulated by a fluid build-up ('energy attracts fluid' - Dr Wilhelm Reich). Following this event the normal body fluids will now contain hormonal remnants and biochemical residues, forming pockets of fluid known as stasis or, if there are several pockets, meta-stases. These by-products, if left in the body, can build up a toxic load and eventually lead to dysfunction and sometimes, disease.

A wide range of biodynamic methods have been developed which use the stethoscope to find the key to activate the psycho-peristalsis. Psycho-peristalsis unblocks the trapped energy and liberates the feeling or emotion that has been held. As the energy is liberated it goes through a 'zone of firing'. This event dissolves the 'unholy alliance' of energetic nervous fluid and restores each component part - energy and fluid - to itself. Energy is energy, fluid is fluid.

As the energetic nervous fluid is neutralized, the fluid component returns to the several normal channels of flow and elimination in the body. Psycho-peristalsis enables the body's natural capacity to 'empty' this potentially harmful energetic nervous fluid once and for all - via the normal eliminative organs. These organs include the kidneys, liver, skin, lymph, colon, sinuses and connective tissue.

The biodynamic emptying and deep-draining treatments activate the function of the eliminative organs, which naturally remove the bulk of free toxins, along with some fixed toxins, through a process of osmosis. It is always important to ensure that the toxins released as a result of treatment are emptied, and psycho-peristalsis monitored by the stethoscope is the guarantor of this function. Biodynamic treatment helps to flush toxins out of the body and prevent them from settling in the same location or elsewhere.

Feelings of fullness, bloating, transudation pressure and fluid distension pressure leading to higher levels of toxic load are the greatest hindrances to physical, mental and emotional health. Emptying or deep-draining on the cellular level is essential to reduce the toxic load on all levels.

In each biodynamic session we are mindful of the effects of the build-up of stress, howsoever caused, and of the importance of natural and progressive emptying or detoxification - the release and elimination of all toxins out of all organs and tissues - where and if such effects are indicated.

This natural process leads to feelings of cleansing, relaxation, peace and relief.

The range of therapeutic methods developed by Gerda Boyesen are primarily designed to optimise the emptying of energetic nervous fluid as a fundamental aim in all sessions.

As we become clear, our primary personality emerges, without resistance, and we come in touch with our higher qualities, and real enjoyment of life can unfold.

Rev CH - Participant

"My biodynamic training was a profoundly loving and spiritual journey for me. It has brought so many positive changes to my life that I thought impossible. Because of these changes I feel well prepared as I practice my biodynamic work. I was helped to break down the walls that I had built around myself as protection and realised that the walls kept the world out there and I was trapped inside. I learned to embrace the aspects of me that I had been resisting, moved forward and no longer allowed my past to control me. I gradually changed the way I cope with things, the way I view the world and how I see the world viewing me. I have a greater sense of self and more confidence. I began to learn what it meant to be in my body and that helped me in my life. I developed a trust of my body feelings so I did what was right for me, in particular with regard to my health. I changed the way I communicated to a more positive way, with friends, colleagues, and I will be forever grateful for the way it deeply affected my relationship with my beautiful daughter. I am able to express love and allow in the love that is offered to me. I found my own beauty and love and I enjoy the pleasure of being able to reach out and connect to others."
