« Lâche prise ! » : tenir et lâcher en mouvement : questionnements autour de l'incarnation du lâcher-prise en psychomotricité

Abstract : Since the 1990’s, the Letting Go has been expanding in the field of personal development and progressively in many other fields including medical ones. After interviewing more than twenty people about their vision of Letting Go, I noticed there is a possible embodiment of Letting Go in the psychomotricity field, as it raises the notions of tone, sensations, emotions, time and space, but also relationship, trust and therapeutic framework.
Letting Go is a tool that helps to understand the psychomotor organization of a patient suffering from depression. The polarities «hold on» and «let go» let me think that Letting Go is part of a vital movement that allows the individuals to adjust their body structure, their relationship to the self and their environment.
The movement leads the individuals to let go and feel their supports, in order to better repel them. Once caught in this global movement, the Letting Go is involved in a vital circular process by participating in the modulation, transformation and evolution of the human being as a living and tensing matter. In the psychomotor relationship, it highlights the importance of tonic-emotional dialogue as a vector of psychomotor therapy. Present for oneself as well as in the relationship, the Letting Go appears to be a modulation from the environment point of view, leading individuals to transform themselves while they transform the world in which they are evolving.
