Somatic Body Therapy

The main goal of Somatic Therapy is the recognition and release of physical tension that may remain in the body in the aftermath of a traumatic event. The therapy sessions typically involve the patient tracking his or her experience of sensations throughout the body. Depending on the form of Somatic Psychology used, sessions may include awareness of bodily sensations, dance, breathing techniques, voice work, physical exercise, movement and healing touch.* Somatic Therapy can offer a variety of benefits, helping reframe and transform current or past negative experiences. It also reduces discomfort, strain and stress, while developing a heightened ability to concentrate.*

“When I understood where stress was housed in my body, I was able to make changes to reduce pain and stress. I was holding stress and just didn’t realize it until I learned how to release it. I feel like a new person.”*
