Somatic Therapy Session/ Trauma Resolution Work
Somatic Therapy works with the principles of trauma resolution within the nervous system as modeled by Somatic Experiencing®.
Somatic Therapy attends to the whole organism. It helps clients heal from trauma, reduce their stress, manage chronic illness and pain, lessen anxiety, and resolve the suffering of enmeshed physical & emotional ailments.
The body's innate aptitude is toward regulation. In a Somatic Therapy session, we are working to create the conditions that enable this regulation to occur.
This is the capacity of the human organism to heal itself.
~Somatic Experiencing® is a body-awareness approach to trauma being taught throughout the world. It is the result of over forty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Levine. Based upon the realization that human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma, Somatic Experiencing has touched the lives of many thousands. SE® restores self-regulation, and returns a sense of aliveness, relaxation and wholeness to traumatized individuals who have had these precious gifts taken away.~
