Body Armoring

…For most of us, the traumas involved in growing up in our society, with its restriction on sexual expression, leads to blockages of bioenergy in the body, which [Wilhelm] Reich called “character armor.” This muscular armoring occurs in certain parts of the body. These regions of armoring include the pelvis, the chest, and the face. Orgasm is restricted to the genital region and does not extend throughout the body, as in a healthy person.1
