The impact of Neuromatrix on the “Body Cells Carry Emotional Memory” theory and its implication in massage. PDF Print E-mail

A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind.

Recently I had an amusing chance to see how true this parable is.

A while ago I wrote an article that described the theory Body Cells Carry Emotional Memory and explains its application in massage practice. My interest to this theory was mostly based on massive clinical observations.  In short, this theory states that the negative memories associated with the emotional trauma are stored in the cells of somatic parts that were affected or injured concurrently with the emotional trauma.  But since body cells don’t have any specialized “memory” mechanism I made an assumption that in a frame of this theory, places on somatic parts correspond to book marks while as memories themselves are stored somewhere in brain.
