I'm honored to be interviewed by Cecca Ochoa for Apogee Journal Online.
CO: So, how exactly does physical pain heal emotional and/ or psychological pain?
YQ: Just as our bodies gain muscle memory through movement–-acquiring skills and agility––our bodies also harbor emotional memory. Acupuncture and massage therapy are respected practices of tapping into the body, sometimes to fix physical ailments, but also to release energy or Chi blockage. Rituals that incorporate physical tension or pressure can tap into the psychophysical story that the body has formed. That story can be retold, reshaped, and reclaimed. Psychoanalysis is based on the recall of memories, this is a form of recall and reclamation. By adding the physical dimension to the words, a more profound of release can be achieved.
