My personal journey into the world of Core Energetics began as a quest for understanding and growth. With two amazing grown boys by my side, I embarked on a path of self-discovery that eventually led me to the profound principles of Core Energetics Therapy.


I discovered the transformative power of integrating the body, mind, and spirit.

Over the years, I have witnessed the impact of Core Energetics on my own life, and it has become my mission to share this powerful modality with others seeking profound and lasting change. The unwavering support of my sons has been both a source of strength and a testament to the healing potential that exists within our closest relationships.

Hands Up

Core Energetics

Core Energetics Therapy is a form of body-centered psychotherapy that integrates psychological, spiritual, and physical aspects of an individual. It was developed by John Pierrakos, a psychiatrist, in the 1970s, building upon the work of his wife, Eva Pierrakos, and incorporating principles from Wilhelm Reich's body-oriented psychotherapy.

Here are some key principles and aspects of Core Energetics Therapy:

Energetic Flow: The therapy emphasizes the concept of energy flow within the body. It suggests that emotional and psychological issues can be manifested in physical tensions and blockages. The goal is to release these blocks and restore a more balanced and harmonious flow of energy.

Body-Mind Connection: Core Energetics recognizes the interconnectedness of the body and mind. It asserts that psychological and emotional issues are not isolated from the physical body but are, in fact, expressed through bodily experiences, postures, and movements.

Character Structures: The therapy considers the influence of character structures on an individual's behavior and experiences. These structures, often developed in response to early life experiences, can create patterns of defense mechanisms and coping strategies. Core Energetics seeks to identify and transform these structures to promote personal growth.

Breathing and Movement: Techniques involving conscious breathing and various movements are integral to Core Energetics. These practices aim to increase self-awareness, release tension, and promote a more authentic expression of emotions.

Spiritual Integration: Core Energetics Therapy incorporates a spiritual dimension, encouraging individuals to explore their inner selves, connect with their life purpose, and foster a sense of meaning and fulfillment.

Group Dynamics: Group therapy is often a central component of Core Energetics. Working within a group setting provides opportunities for individuals to explore interpersonal dynamics, relationships, and patterns in a supportive and transformative environment.

Holistic Approach: Core Energetics takes a holistic approach to healing, recognizing the importance of integrating body, mind, and spirit for overall well-being.
