Coughing Up Conflict

Filed under: Relational Somatic Psychotherapy,Wilhelm Reich — drtone @ 1:30 pm

Saw again today the coughing that happens when a person tries to expel a deep conflict. It is as if the emotional content has formed a congested knot, and the reaction necessary to break it up is a hacking dry cough. I saw this in myself first, but have observed it in others and have heard accounts, as well. Interesting that this is not something that is widely recognized.
