Welcome to SCIBA
Bioenergetic Analysis is a unique and effective psychotherapy that helps resolve emotional issues by engaging the wisdom of the body in a safe and caring relationship with a trained therapist.

Bioenergetics has a long and established history, yet finds itself on the cutting edge of contemporary psychology as rapid advances in neurobiology highlight the intricate and intimate relationship between body and mind.

What is Bioenergetic Analysis?
Bioenergetics recognizes that our experiences leave physical imprints from our earliest days of childhood. Our physiological responses to events in our lives are stored in our cells and muscles as well as our minds. Negative stored "memories" can manifest in a range of problems in adult life, from patterns of failed relationships to illness and chronic pain.

Bioenergetics also recognizes that difficult childhood experiences occur in the context of close relationship with parents and caretakers, and that healing from them requires a nurturing and safe relationship in the present.

Bioenergetics invites the release of unconscious holding patterns in the body through breathing, movement and emotional expression while being supported and protected by a trained and caring therapist.

People who have experienced this powerful combination of safe relationship and full expression of themselves through their bodies testify that they have renewed energy they can apply toward healthy pleasure and purpose in life.
