English translation: from a physical (or corporal) perspective

Spanish term or phrase: perspectiva corporal
The full sentence is: "Voy a compartir algo de la perspectiva corporal desde la que trabajo y algunas recomendaciones para transitar la experiencia de la perforación."

It's from a text about piercings, bodies and pain.

The word-for-word translation "bodily perspective" just does't sound right to me, and I'd be interested to hear alternatives that sound more natural in English.

Specifically, I'd like to:

- Use a word other than perspective, because I don't feel it conveys the same meaning in this case.

- Know whether "bodily" (although correct because it's an adjective) sounds too stuffy and if in everyday usage it would suffice to say "body perspective/body something else" (without sounding incorrect).

If it helps, my target audience is Australians in the body piercing industry.

Thanks in advance for any help!

agree  Christopher Peterson: Corporal isn't wrong, but I typically hear it in a negative context - corporal punishment, for example. I'd personally go with physical instead.
