The Tamura Method:

A Mind-Body Integration Model for Healing

What is the Tamura Method? 

The Tamura Method is a mind-body integration model for healing. It’s a way to integrate, or bridge, the pain we carry inside of us to the competent, healthy, mature self we know, but not always know how, to be. It enables us to resolve questions like: ‘Why do I keep hurting myself?’, ‘Why have years of therapy not helped?’, ‘I understand my issues, so why are they still getting in my way?’.  The Tamura Method is a way of deeply understanding our pain and our unproductive, unhealthy behaviors, and integrating this knowledge via self-love. By doing so, the Tamura Method can be used to finally find peace and the unlimited potential for happiness and wellbeing. LEARN MORE

What is the Tamura Method’s Mind-Body Integration Model?

There are two selves: the adult self that is rational, analytical, and resides in the brain, and the child self that is emotional, reactive, and resides in the body. Either one of these two selves can be in control of our lives at any time.  Ideally we have our adult self in control, making wise, healthy decisions and coping productively with any challenge we face. However, when we are triggered the child part takes over and starts calling the shots. The child self developed it’s coping methods at a time in our lives of great pain and panic, it seeks recognition and love -but doesn’t know how to get these things in a mature, well-reasoned way. When we act out we are often not aware of it because the adult self is absent. The Mind-Body Integration model shows us how to integrate the two selves, ensuring that the child self feels loved and secure, and trusts the adult self to be in control. LEARN MORE

How Does the Tamura Method Help Heal?

We heal ourselves by introducing the two parts of the self to one another, learning how to recognize which one is in control, and integrating them with awareness and self-love. LEARN MORE

How do Practitioners Trained in the Tamura Method Help?

A practitioner trained in the Tamura Method will acts as a bridge between the two selves, holding the pain of the child self and encouraging the adult self to form new, loving connections with it. He or she takes on the role of witness to the process, models unconditional love for the child, and encourages the adult self as it learns how to provide that love to the child it on its own.
