Core Energetics focuses upon energy, the basic building block of human life. Physical exercises and grounding techniques help release old wounds and enhance your lives. Core therapists use energy healing, balancing the chakras and enhancing the aura, to help you feel fully alive.  Because core energetics techniques return a natural flow of energy to the body, people experience their authentic selves.

Through opening the heart, you can remove obstacles to love and intimacy, basking in the glow of love.

The body, like the clay of a sculptor, takes the shape influenced by social pressures and parental demands in early childhood.

Knowing where energy is blocked and where it flows in the body allows practitioners to identify client issues.

The body is the laboratory of life. For healing to take place in the psyche, the body must be involved.


John C. Pierrakos created Core Energetics in the early 1970’s. It’s evolution followed from his studies with Wilhelm Reich and his partnership with Alexander Lowen with whom he developed Bioenergetics. A spiritual component was added based on the  lectures channeled by Eva Pierrakos, his wife, who founded the Pathwork Community.
