Title : The grammar of the body in relation to a deep layer of the brain and a particular neurocognitive functioning, to reorganize thoughts and process in stress diseases and traumatisms


Traditional techniques, such as yoga and meditation through their empirical and practical approach to the Living, transmit to us their long and deep knowledge of human beings. Neuroscience, psychology and physiology can tap into this intelligence, tested by experience and concreteness, and gain a clearer, more complete and therefore integrative understanding of mental health and balance. I therefore allowed myself to be impregnated by this double belonging to quickly get my patients out of their tensions and painful emotions. The functioning of the human organism can be subdivided into different layers : they go from the mechanical, through the organic, the tissue, the cellular and now we are able to unravel the mystery of the microscopicintra-cellular and even more, we are entering quantum space. This dimension of life can be matched with a subtle way of “thinking”, a dimension of brain work that allows psychotherapy to be more economical and above all more ecological in the treatment of stress and traumatic dysfunctions.
This presentation will discuss about:
- The ‘Life’ nervous system and the other one dedicated to our ‘Survival’.
- The particularity of "weightlessness" caused by a specific gesture in the technique of relaxotherapy® and the  means of accessing a Life-Survival connection in parallel.
- Insight and particular activation of the right anterior superior temporal gyrus (RH-aSTG) allowing distant, extensive and unusual neural connections.
- Meditation and the ability to access the expansion of the mind, in particular of the order of synchronicity and attunement, to have a stronger connection between therapist and patient.
- And thereby, to give him access to this interior / exterior common space, that is to say connected to the Wisdom of Life, to process more quickly and adequately the emotional traces of deep suffering and traumatisms.

Audience Take Away Notes: 

  • The participants will be able to be more efficient in the event of post-traumatic stress
  • To understand the double logic of life and survival
  • To understand the importance of neurovegetative appeasement in both, common life and in acute situations
  • They will be able to use the simple grammar of the unconscious and the gestures of relaxotherapy® to help calm an agitated patient quickly
  • They can help the person, through the body, to move naturally towards well-being and thus set in motion the self-healing processes inherent in Life


Michele Quintin has a degree in Psychological and Pedagogical Sciences (ULB). In 1985, she founded a psychotherapeutic day center specializing in the problems of stress (chronic and traumatic) and concomitant disorders (anxiety, depressive states, overwork, burnout). She seeks, among the many techniques both bodily and mental, effective tools to remedy the various tensions. She has always worked in a multidisciplinary team. She professes as a psychotherapist, teacher and facilitator of workshops, conferences and seminars on health psychology, stress management and mindfulness. She is particularly keen to prevent the anxiety and aggressiveness inherent in our modern lifestyles. His practice is nourished by Eastern and Western teachers and in particular by the late master B.K.S. Iyengar (Hatha yoga and energetic body arts) and Lama Zeupa, Tibetan Buddhist master.
