Bioenergetics therapy was developed by psychiatrist Alexander Lowen, MD, in the 1950s, basing his work on Reichian therapy, which theorized that our repressed emotions are transformed into muscle tension and rigidity, which Wilhelm Reich called "body armor." Since bioenergetic analysis and therapy is usually done by psychotherapists, it is difficult to evaluate apart from psychotherapy itself.
Note: available scientific evidence does not support bioenergetics as a useful treatment for cancer or any other disease.
Bioenergetics therapists use a combination of psychotherapy, gentle body movements, massage, deep breathing, and exercises that involve crying, screaming and kicking in an effort to help patients "release" emotional memories. The therapy may also include analysis of aspects of other alternative therapies such as biofeedback, herbs, homeopathy, and nutrition.

|Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze: "Measure Your Inner Tension - Stress Test If you have unresolved psychological trauma, then you have excessive inner tension. Just because someone wears an apparently happy smile and says that they feel relaxed does not make it so. There are many ways to measure inner tension and I shall discuss those that I think work both easily and well.
In The New Primal Scream, Dr. Arthur Janov (1991, p. 244) has described a "repression index," which includes blood pressure, pulse rate and body temperature. (His index also includes brain wave measurements that I'll not discuss because few of us have access to such brain measuring devices.) He has shown that as the amount of psychological tension in your body falls, then your blood pressure falls, your pulse rate falls, your core body temperature falls and your extremities' temperatures rise. These changes happen both temporarily in a major way during primal therapy sessions and permanently to a lesser degree afterwards." Continued here - free read.||
