Functional Analysis - A bodypsychotherapy

I began developing Functional Analysis in 1984. At first I saw it as a simple technique for mobilizing energetic processes, similar to breathing techniques, voluntary exercises, imaging, etc. It can be used in this fashion by adapting it to standard (Neo-) Reichian oriented bodyworks. But, as the technique developed and the work deepened, I began to realize that this approach was offering more than I originally thought and it lead me to the understanding described below. The technique itself then became secondary to the methodology that developed from it. This paper is a brief description of the origins and ideas behind Functional Analysis.
