Transpersonal Therapy – The exit is actually inside

What is transpersonal therapy?

While Maslow in the United States sensed the limitations of the humanist movement he had created, a Czechoslovak psychoanalyst named Stanislav Grof, rescuing the pioneering work of Otto Rank, set out to map new areas of the unconscious previously unexplored. A few years later, in the mid-60s, Grof and Maslow coincidentally met at Esalen, California, and together with Sutich, they founded Transpersonal Psychology.

Maslow, Grof, and Sutich are considered the pioneers and founders of this new current, also incorporating contributions from others such as Jung and Assagioli. Over the years, authors of the stature of Viktor Frankl, Ken Wilber, Daniel Goleman, Joseph Campbell, Huston Smith, Charles Tart, Francis Vaughan, Roger Walsh, Stanley Kripner, and many more have joined this new movement.

What defines the new Transpersonal Psychology is the recognition of the importance of spiritual dimensions and the evolutionary potential of consciousness. Its methodology brings closer the dialogue between Western psychological practice and certain principles of Eastern spiritual traditions, being the first psychological force that enjoys an integrative vision of the knowledge from both the West and the East.

Transpersonal refers to a state of consciousness that goes beyond the contents and processes with which the conscious self identifies. It pertains to a realm of higher evolution that transcends the personal self and seeks to unfold the capacity for self-witnessing of internal and external processes from an “observing self” or witness consciousness bathed in total neutrality, resulting in the dyad: observer and the object observed.

Therefore, transpersonal therapy is the art of accompanying the person on this “greater” path of evolution, self-witnessing, and of stimulating the growth and harnessing of their great internal potential.

Transpersonal therapy uses what is spoken and what is lived or experienced in the form (among other techniques) of meditation, visualizations, forced breathing (holotropic technique), and bioenergetic bodywork.

Just like spoken transpersonal therapy, and as a bodily tool in perfect harmony, we find the Californian Massage as a body therapy based on the axis of observe-include-transcend.

It is a therapy that surfs the wave of consciousness at the moment it commits to moving from thought to neutral awareness or observation, from the emphasis on information that overwhelms the minds of patients to the realm of inspiration, intuition, from reflection to feeling, honoring at all times the depth and essential identity.

Therefore, the Californian Massage is a passport that allows entry into the transpersonal dimension as it involves a transformation that goes from the encapsulated mind to the soul itself and of the world, breaking down layer by layer, disidentifying with the previous dimensions and opening up to deeper, broader, and more expanded dimensions, where it begins to be possible to intuit and understand something different, something that has always been there perennially.

The term transpersonal means “beyond” or “through” the personal, and refers to experiences, processes, and events that transcend our usual limited sense of identity and allow us to experience a greater and more meaningful reality. Daniels

Everything that happens in our emotional body has an effect on our physical body and vice versa. Illness is a messenger that an internal conflict is not being resolved.

La Fascia

Fascia is the fibrous semi-flexible membrane of connective tissue that unites the distinct components of the human body. Within the fascia, small bags are formed that contain the organs of the human body. Mio means muscle. The Miofascia covers, serves as a support, and separates the muscles of the body. Each muscle fibre is wrapped within Mio-fascia, and furthermore, each muscle is also wrapped in Miofascia. The Miofascial tissue has a dynamic behaviour: under tension it augments its density and relative rigidity, giving the muscle greater structural support. As a result of the augmentation of the density generated by the increase of tension, the body becomes more rigid and less flexible, which in turn produces restriction of movement. Generally, these are the result of misalignments and mechanical-postural or functional imbalances, many of which have emotional roots. Deep Miofascial massage addresses the treatment of chronic pain, and also the treatment of lesser pain caused by this lack of flexibility and movement.

La Fascia

La fascia es la membrana fibrosa semiflexible de tejido conectivo que une las distintas componentes del cuerpo humano. Dentro de la fascia se forman bolsillos que contienen los órganos del cuerpo. Mio significa músculo. La miofascia cubre, sirve de soporte y separa los músculos del cuerpo. Cada fibra muscular está envuelta en miofascia y a su vez cada músculo también está envuelto en miofascia.

El tejido miofascial tiene un comportamiento dinámico: bajo tensión aumenta su densidad y rigidez relativa, dándole al músculo un mayor soporte estructural. Como resultado de este aumento de densidad que se genera al incrementar la tensión bajo la que se encuentra una estructura corporal se puede generar rigidez y falta de flexibilidad que a su vez producen incapacidad de movimiento. Generalmente estas son el resultado de desalineaciones o desequilibrios mecánico-posturales y funcionales, muchas de ellas con raíces emocionales. El Masaje del Tejido Profundo tiene como foco principal el tratamiento tanto del dolor crónico como el agudo causado por esta falta de flexibilidad e incapacidad de movimiento.
