Core Energetics is a method of therapy that strives to achieve transformation through self-discovery. Developed by John C. Pierrakos, this technique differs from traditional talk therapy in that it engages the body’s energy source through physical activity including kicking, hitting, muscle flexing, extreme posturing, vocalizations and expressions, and joins these outlets to statements. By doing so, the client is provided with a cohesive conversation between body and mind. Core Energetics allows a client to deeply feel his emotions and conflicting feelings, and often times the client discovers the sensations of true healing more rapidly than with traditional talk therapy by itself. Core Energetics can be difficult, but it inspires creativity, surprise, excitement and uniqueness and offers immense physical and emotional healing.
Core Energetics has also been referred to as the common link joining both spirituality and psychology. The first Western psychotherapy technique to combine both spiritual and physical psychology, this unique form of treatment is an extremely holistic and blended technique. Core Energetics aims to achieve healing through an integration of all measures of humanity – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. This form of therapy is constructed on the theories of Freud, Jung, and Wilhelm Reich, as well as the study of physics, spirituality, charka theory and intrinsic human development.
Core Energetics comprehends and expands upon the healing process that energy provides to both the physical and spiritual being. To truly heal, one must understand every aspect of their inner self, their defenses, their beauty and the depths of their darkness. Change occurs in stages as each layer of a being is identified and brought into awareness. This culminates with a magnificent burst of energy which can be directed toward achieving mental, spiritual and physical healing. The ultimate goal of Core Energetics is to provide the client with a greater sense of life satisfaction, abundance, joy and happiness.
