Movement Analysis, method Cary Rick


Movement Analysis is a depth psychology method which enables to experience the connection between body, mind and spirit by body movement. We are embodying through movement. When we move we act in life and at the same time we relate to each other and to our environment.

Cary Rick, solo performer and actor, born in Chicago, after working some years as a dancetherapist and evaluating diverse techniques of dancetherapy critically, founded  the Association of Dancetherapy/ Movement Analysis in Austria, Switzerland and Germany and after, when he definitively left the theoretical perception of dancetherapy, he founded  the Institute for Movement Analysis in Switzerland. The Institute is recognized internationally as a Training and Investigation Institute by the American Dance and Movement Therapy Association ADTA.

In movement analytic theorie movement is not understood simbolically or as behaviour, but as action in an intersubjective experience.

In case of disease, you can notice a crystallization of movement, different movement impulses fight against each other.

During a movement analytic session we get the possibility to feel our conflict and so the process of solving the conflict can be initiated.
A movement analytic process support helps you to become conscious of your own movements- movement are your actions - and the understanding of your movements/actions  in the specific contexts of relationships. To become conscious of your own movements, means, to strenghten your existencial resources, to dissolve blockages and so diseases and to improve your relationship with yourself and with the others.
