Body De-Armouring (also called Muscular De-Armouring or Emotional De-Armouring) has become a popular form of emotional and trauma release, practiced by an increasing number of somatic psychologists and massage and bodywork therapists alike.

The phenomenon of Armouring and subsequent De-Armouring was pioneered by the Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, and is a way of explaining unconscious physical tensions and restrictions in the body as a reaction to suppressed or repressed traumatic emotional experiences.

Reich’s work led to the birth of Body Psychotherapy, a field of Mind-Body therapies that aim at healing physical, emotional, mental, and sexual injuries and traumas through body awareness, massage, bodywork, exercise, and movement.

A variety of other somatic therapies, including massage therapy, breathwork, dance and movement therapy, Sexological Bodywork, Somatic Sex Coaching, Tantra Massage, and Yoga have integrated Body DeArmouring approaches and techniques in their sessions.

In addition, you’ll also find specialized De-Armouring treatment modalities, many of which are also offered as training courses. Think of modalities such as Tantric De-Armouring, Genital Mapping, Neo-Reichian Massage, BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release, Radix Work, Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises, or NeuroAffective Touch®, just to give some examples.

De-Armouring treatments apply a range (and often a combination) of hands-on somatic techniques such as breathwork, massage, touch, guided imagery, pressure, acupressure, exercises, dance, movement, and simulations of bodily or nervous system reactions in order to release the client’s physical tensions and constrictions (or by contrast — numbness and disconnectedness) with the final aim of releasing, digesting, and healing subconscious and/or conscious emotional hurt.

Moreover, by releasing muscular and internal organ tensions, clients can also get rid of physical health issues, reduce stress levels, improve their blood circulatory and immune system, and promote the free flow of Life Force Energy through their bodies.

It’s also thought that the unobstructed flow of Life Energy through the body leads to improved vitality, increased physical and mental energy, unlocked creative potential, improved focus and concentration ability, and feelings of general wellbeing and joy. As a result, the “de-armoured” individual is better able to explore their full potential, and can actually grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

At any rate, below then our overview of Body De-Armouring training courses, classes, and workshops offered in Canada.
