YI ZHOU Body Memory is formed from the hypothesis that the body itself is capable of storing memories, as opposed to only the brain. The recollections that our body stores are not always ones that we are consciously aware of, such as sounds, smells, touches and so on.
These unconscious memories are imprinted all over our bodies on a cellular level. Therefore it is the cells that store information of our experiences, habits, and sensations. Things like skin, muscles and nerves all accumulate these details as they actively engage in our daily lives.
