Bioenergetic Analysis is a body psychotherapy which treats body, mind and spirit as inseperable. Therefore it integrates work directly with the body together with the verbal analytic work that characterizes more traditional psychotherapies. All psychotherapies inevitably involve both the relationship between the therapist and client and the bodies of both.

How conscious practitioners are about both aspects of their work depends on their training. Most psychotherapists are well trained in relational, cognitive, or analytic psychotherapy but have little training in working directly with the body. Bioenergetic Analysts are thoroughly trained in all areas.

In: The Connecticut Society of Bioenergetic Analysis.

68% of the female therapists, members of the Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis in 1977, answered a mail questionnaire concerning the effects of Bioenergetic therapy on themselves and their clients.  Although 87% disagreed with one or more of the theories of Bioenergetic Analysis (and were therefore not "true believers"), between 70-89% reported increased capacity for self assertion, greater energy, improved breathing, increased capacity to experience pleasure, improved physical health and self esteem, improvement in sexual functioning and capacity to love and unification of sexual and tender feelings in relationships, diminished chronic muscle tension and greater ability to cope with depression.
