Megan Nigro, MA, CMT, SEP
Integrative Somatic Body Therapy
Trauma Resolution - Nervous System Regulation
Megan's approach is a blend of her experience and knowledge of Somatic Experiencing® and somatic touch with somatic psychology -specifically, Attachment Theory, fused with her background in the exploratory healing of mindfulness and wellness practices such as yoga & Ayurveda, meditation, chakra sciences, Shiatsu, and traditional bodywork methods.
Therapeutically, she is informed most by Dr. Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing®, Kathy Kain's Somatic [Touch] Practice, Dr. Stephen Terrell's Somatic Attachment and Developmental Trauma, and Steve Hoskinson’s Organic Intelligence®. These approaches support her growing ability to be with, recognize, and attend to the organic processes unfolding within each of us.
She is a senior assistant within the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute and an approved Advanced Session and Consult provider.
Your healing work with Megan can vary depending on your needs and aspirations. She offers ongoing somatic therapy sessions aimed at nervous system regulation to reduce and potentially resolve symptoms of stress physiology resulting from overwhelming stresses/ trauma/developmental trauma, deepening self-exploration/ discovery and integration, or short term issue-focused support.
Your somatic healing may play a central role in your process, or it may serve as a compliment to work in which you're already engaged medically, psycho-therapeutically, or spiritually.
Megan is available for talks/presentations, and to lead interactive and experiential groups developing somatic awareness of nervous system regulation and educating on its various influences on overall health, wellness, and well being.
A note from Megan;
Healing is a personal, courageous, and liberating endeavor that matters deeply to our world.
Healing our trauma empowers us. It does this by reuniting us with the biological powers that enabled our survival. As we come back into a relationship with our sensate selves, we gain access to our whole being. It is from here that we live truly, that we interact and engage fully with our world. It is from this whole self, a healthy mind-body-being, that a healthy society can be created.
I'm deeply honored and grateful to support someone through their courageous and radical act of healing. Self-exploration, growth, and development is not for the faint-hearted but for the inspired warriors of our species. Daily, I am both moved and humbled by the brave hearts and spirit of people. And I am continually awed by the extraordinary resilience of the organic healing capacity deeply seeded within each and every one of us.
