The Grinberg Method teaches people to use their own abilities to deal with their personal struggles and difficulties in life. Clients learn to deal with issues in their lives by increasing their body attention in various situations and expanding their awareness of experience through their body. This allows for a shift from “talking or explaining their life” to experiencing other possibilities in oneself and in life.

You learn to approach fear and pain differently in your body and your life in a way that you can teach it..

The Grinberg Method is a practice that, although it has theoretical concepts, is first and foremost experienced. It is approached in the same way as the martial arts, through a personal practice that enriches your life and your ability to choose what you do or do not want to experience. As a practitioner, you will increase your energy level and learn to direct your attention clearly. The more you are able to play with your fears instead of undergoing them, the more you will be able to think kinesthetically including all levels of your being. The studies teach you to be 100% present and attentive to your clients (and to yourself outside of the sessions).
