In principle, any person will benefit from Calatonia as they will achieve deep relaxation and a break in habitual patterns of tension, within a supportive and contained environment (in dyadic regulation with therapist).
However, a trained professional should always assess each case, check the patient’s history, evaluate the patient’s initial reactions to the technique to determine any counter-indication to the application of the method in the long run, or other specific needs.
There are two instances in which Calatonia is not recommended, in acute psychosis and early stages of pregnancy if the pregnant patient has not received Calatonia before (to avoid overloading the pregnant body with new stimuli).
There are many papers, articles and chapters written by multidisciplinary professionals regarding the use of Calatonia as a complementary resource to psychological and medical treatments, physical rehabilitation, speech therapy, sports, etc.
The goal of Calatonia is not to fix a specific problem, such as eliminate a certain pain, but instead, to make holistic changes within each unique individual that will lead to better functional health and well-being.
Once this restructuring has occurred, several benefits may be observed including the elimination of a specific pain. Without promising specific results, once Calatonia has helped to restore self-regulation, it will positively affect a wide gamut of complaints, such as muscular tension, stress, migraines, insomnia, asthma, obesity, anorexia, hormonal imbalances, pains, chronic conditions, fatigue, and psychosomatic disturbances.
