The medium of functional relaxation is the body (i.e., body, soul, and mind) and its 'rhythm,' which penetrates and supports the individual human sphere. One who is in ageement with his/her body is also in agreement with its surroundings; one who sets up tensions between the world and the self loses personal rhythm. In body language, this loss is manifested in the form of tensions. Functional relaxation approaches such tensions individually, beginning at the spine and the joints and continuing through the inner cavities and space. Examples are given showing the success of this approach where other psychotherapeutic methods had failed. (German summary) (10 ref) ((c) 1999 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved)
