This paper focuses on a body/mind perspective of enhancing movement in individuals’ physical and psychosocial well-being by exploring the influence of the body and mind on each other. The significance of the initial clinician-client interaction is explored and how this relationship greatly influences successful therapeutic outcome. A composite case study illustration is used to demonstrate a body/mind perspective utilizing the therapeutic approaches of craniosacral therapy, hypnotherapy, and solution focused brief therapy. The authors highlight the significance of the therapist’s theoretical lens, the importance of an attentive initial evaluation, and the facilitation of change by tapping into the client’s internal resources to assist in wellness of the body and mind.
