What is Somatic Experiencing?
Somatic Experiencing Therapy is a body-centered approach to healing, concerned with the relationship between the mind and body in relation to past experiences. Somatic Experiencing is based on the idea that trauma disrupts the functioning of the nervous system. As such, past traumas are believed to be stored and re-experienced physically in the body. This might be evident in a person’s posture, movements, and body language. A person might also experience emotional stresses or physical symptoms like digestive issues or pain.

What Happens in a Somatic Experiencing Session?
To help people heal from trauma, Somatic Experiencing incorporates the narrative aspect of therapy with observing body movements. By becoming more aware of the body and its response to past trauma, the patient learns to sense and disrupt habitual patterns, release emotions, and move on. Various physical techniques such as breathing, or relaxation exercises are used to this end. The therapist might help guide you through memories associated with past trauma, observing and increasing awareness of how your body reacts.
