Body signals are cues that are given on the level of physical awareness. There are root signals that point to the origins of an experience that have become stored in our somatic awareness. There are also follow-up signals that constitute the links in a body signal chain. This chain includes both the origin of an experience and its associated follow-up signals. If these signals aren’t registered, a symptom develops. If this symptom in turn isn’t noted, it can lead to illness.
