How emotions are mapped in the body

How emotions are mapped in the body | Mental Health & Emotional Wellness |
Researchers found that the most common emotions trigger strong bodily sensations, and the bodily maps of these sensations were topographically different for different emotions.
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

This research discovered and mapped where different emotions are experienced in the body. These are the most common emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, love, pride and shame. Connecting the emotion to the body sensation can help in moving through and allowing space for the emotion.
