Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Love, Sex, & Your Heart elucidates how emotional life and physical being
are one, mutually reflective as two sides of a coin. Emotional life is tied to
physical being and physical health is dependent on emotional well-being.
Alexander Lowen’s insight into these powerful connections offers
an innovative approach to cardiovascular health and the treatment of
heart disease.
Lowen examines the feeling of love as a physiological process in the body.
When this process is frustrated, as in the case of heartbreak or isolation,
especially during childhood, people suppress their pain by unconsciously
rigidifying their chest muscles. This results in a chronic restriction of
breathing, movement, and feeling. It is this tension that limits pleasure, and
predisposes so many to heart disease.
This book features the principles and therapeutic techniques to help people
understand their fear of love, release chronic muscular tension, and become
more loving. It is essential reading for health professionals and anyone
interested in the health of the heart.
