The research published here is conducted with the aim of determining the impact of learning the AEQ method on chronic and medically unexplained conditions of participants in the online programs of the AEQ method and AEQ breathing. With this, we want to add an objective view and analysis of changes made possible by learning about sensations, feelings, emotions, rules and principles that are important and necessary for the proper functioning of a person and reducing the effects of sensory-motor amnesia and sensory-motor alienation.
The participants in the study were chosen randomly on the basis of availability and on the relevance of the following two criteria: they had taken part in at least three AEQ group programmes led by Aleš Ernst and they were prepared to be interviewed about their experiences.
The aim of the study was to find out whether (and how) people who had attended at least three AEQ group programmes led by Aleš Ernst had changed their behaviour or their attitude towards themselves, and their behaviour in partner relationships, as parents and at work.
This paper examines the differences within the dimension of chronic pains (Patient Heatlh Questionnaire PHQ 15) before and after participation in an AEQ programme. It also looks at the relationship between this dimension and the dimensions of the Systemic Therapy Inventory of Change (see below).
The study was carried out on programmes conducted by Aleš Ernst, founder and Level 5 teacher of the AEQ method; the results can therefore not be extrapolated to include AEQ programmes led by teachers of lower levels, or to address the effectiveness of somatics, clinical somatics or the Feldenkreis method.
Objective: To evaluate the clinical effect of HSE on low back and neck pain and determine differences in pain, use of pain medication, and number of doctor visits before and after 6 months of HSE sessions.
