Our definition of de-armouring
De-armouring is a way of releasing blockages, stuck energy, emotions and tension from the body – also known as armour. Body armour was first mentioned in writing by Wilhelm Reich back in the 1930’s. The practice of De-Armouring though, is as old as the Shamanic tradition and has many different forms.
Reich described armour as the way the body holds tension and pain, when something has been experienced that activated the nervous system in a way that was not processed.

A perfect combination
The Gaia Method de-armouring is a technique combining many different methods. It uses massage-like touch to open up the body until an area is reached that needs de-armouring or tension release. Our way of de-armouring is a combination of our own techniques mixed with elements of triggerpoint therapy, acupressure, Chi Nei Tsang, energy meridian work, healing, breath, sound, physiotherapy and muscle stretching…
When needed, a de-armouring session will also consist of sexology counseling, couples counseling and psychotherapy.
