The Holistic Therapy - The Grinberg Method
developed from roots in reflexology in the early 1970’s by Avi Grinberg, a former paramedic, is a holistic method of teaching using movement, physical pressure and breathing exercises to increase awareness and create change in the mind and the body.
⇒ There are practitioners all over the world, but Karen is the only practitioner of The Grinberg Method in Japan.
⇒ The Grinberg Method is a process of awareness. It’s a new way to learn how stop chronic pain and to handle stress situations. Most people express themselves in habitual ways. They talk in a certain way, stand, sit, or sleep in a fixed position. These habits are expected and predictable.
In addition, certain feelings and emotions tend to repeat themselves. For some it’s a lack of concentration, for others boredom, or tension. The constancy of these feelings can lead to depression.
These habits are usually first acquired during stressful situations, only to be repeated again and again. They become fixed as an integral part of one’s personality and body, and can result in exhaustion and pain.
Prolonged shoulder pain for example, will restrict your body’s movement, making other areas more stiff, and creating fixed modes of constant discomfort. Someone who has always held themselves straight to appear strong and confident, could suffer after years from back pain and shoulder tension. These pains are the body’s way of saying something needs to change.
