Emotional Release & Our Physical Bodies with Dr. Kimberly Fishbach
At Inspira, we utilize different holistic techniques, some of the osteopathic hands-on techniques such as visceral manipulation and craniosacral therapy. These techniques themselves utilize very subtle energy paired with specific hand placements and specific directions of light force through the hands. The limitations that we can feel with our hands and organs, and the limitations in different craniosacral movements are linked to specific emotions. For example, if there's a limitation in the innate mobility and motility of the kidney, this often is linked to unprocessed deep fear and grief. Emotions are physiological sensations in the mind that put meaning to depending on whatever situation is happening. They give us important information about our internal and external world and environment, which then help us navigate future situations and help figure out ways to most effectively meet our needs and, evolutionary speaking, help us survive
