Beyond your own boundaries: learning and recovery processes according to the Grinberg Method

For whom?

Most people come to me because they want to change some aspect of their lives. Some know exactly what they want to change: they have a physical symptom or they are stuck in an inconvenient mood or situation. Others only know something has to change, and they want to achieve this by working with the body. Some get in contact with me because their doctor recommended this method, others are simply curious and want to try something new.

How does a learning process work?

In the first one-to-one session, the client and me set a goal for the learning process. We describe the current situation and what momentarily stands in the way of achieving this particular goal. A learning process consists of individual, mostly weekly sessions. The length of a learning process varies and, above all, depends on what the client wants to achieve and learn. Personal training can add to a learning process. I also offer learning processes in intensivs. Instead of weekly sessions you get 6-10 sessions within 3-5 day (two sessions per day).

A learning process is concentrated on one aspect of ones own personal development. A recovery process is aimed at changing of physical symptoms, severe or chronic medical conditions as best and quickly as possible.

Goals of a learning process:

  • to have more energy and motivation
  • to tackle and terminate insecurity, anxiety, nervousness, stress, tension, and insomnia in order to gain well-being, concentration and self-confidence
  • to deal with challenges bravely and with motivation
  • to have clear and powerful relationships with others
  • to be able to cope with failure, break-up or loss
  • to implement talent, wishes, or dreams into reality
  • to make an important decision or have a distinct view on a personal dilemma
  • to let go of outdated reasoning which, at present, isn’t relevant any longer

Goals of a recovery process:

  • to change severe and chronic pain and ailments, to reduce them and, in the best case, get rid of them (e.g. migraine, backache, stiff neck, stomach ache, indigestion, menstrual cramps, joint pain, inflammation…)
  • to recover after a long period of illness
  • to minimise or transform accident-related injury, results of physical traumata
  • to recover from birth/Caesarean section, preparation for infertility treatment
  • to take care of severe scars
  • to treat insomnia
  • to restore mobility and regain power over numb body parts

What do clients learn during a session?

  • to pay attention to their own body, to breathe, to relax and to put their minds at rest
  • to recognise unwanted physical mannerisms: which physical effort is a reaction to fear, pain, anger… and how do you limit your own experience
  • to take control over these automated efforts, evoke them deliberately and learn how to stop them in order to have a multitude of opportunities for action available in specific situations
  • not to react to pain automatically but in a way that supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself
  • to recognise their own symptoms better and actively organise their own recovery accordingly
  • to recover from old injuries and make room for innovation
  • not to react to fear automatically and to train and increase courage and self-confidence
  • to focus attention and will on their goals

What are the results of a learning process?

Every learning process lasts an individual length of time. The process ends when the set goal is reached. Further results include:

  • increased physical well-being and body awareness
  • less physical tension and stress
  • increased capacity of concentration
  • increased ability to relax
  • a different approach to deal with symptoms and pain, anxieties and frustration
  • heightened self-confidence and serenity with respect to everyday life challenges
