Body, Mind, Soul
Somatic Touch Body Work
Somatic Experiencing™ involves the body in the healing process from emotional, physical or spiritual pain and suffering. This approach addresses trauma as not just in the event that took place, but in how stored “fight, flight, and freeze” threat-responses were active during that event and then held within the nervous system and body. The holding of this powerful energy, unexpressed is what creates symptoms associated with trauma and stress.
Clients often feel compelled to tell the story of what happened, however the telling of the “story” alone does not change what is stored in the body. The telling of the story often contributes to “stuck in the loop” without shifting the impact that is felt. Be guided in resolving or stabilizing the nervous system’s expression of stress and overwhelm. This practice uses tactile skills, somatic awareness, and other touch-related methods in the context of releasing conditioned protective responses and restoring a sense of ease and balance.
