Good Book link

An interesting look on how the body holds memory in tissues.

Extract below

‘Massage therapists, acupuncturists, Rolfers and other somatic practitioners frequently report uncanny experiences in which vivid images flood into their consciousness as they are working on some part of a client’s body. Sometimes there is a transient sensation that “something has happened” within the body they are touching. An avalanche of detailed sensory material may be triggered. The images may be so striking that the practitioner asks the client about them, only to discover that their client is simultaneously having a similar or identical “flash back.” Rolfer Randy Mack describes this as “…..the recall of deeply repressed, highly charged emotional material with full sensory detail possibly including visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, and olfactory components.”
