Reichian therapy can refer to several schools of thought and therapeutic techniques whose common touchstone is their origins in the work of psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich (1897–1957). Some examples are:

  • Bioenergetic analysis, which combines psychological analysis, active work with the body and relational therapeutic work.
  • Body psychotherapy, which addresses the body and the mind as a whole with emphasis on the reciprocal relationships within body and mind.
  • Neo-Reichian massage, whose practitioners attempt to locate and dissolve body armoring (also called "holding patterns").
  • Vegetotherapy, a form of psychotherapy that involves the physical manifestations of emotions.
