Learn more about Somatic Trauma Therapy
My interest in somatic-based healing stems from my curiosity about the traditional medical models used in psychotherapy and this sense I had of "there must be more". Through personal experience and witnessing journeys around me, I have seen the body's incredible capacity to respond to our experiences in ways that either enable or hinder healing. By incorporating the intuitive wisdom of our bodies and using our nervous systems as the guide and tool for regulation, we can begin to align our mental/emotional, spiritual and physical beings. Honoring the full system in this way gives us a chance to approach trauma and distress in a holistic manner that allows for long term healing, not just short-term relief. The mind has a tendency to get stuck or fixed, but the body is fluid (we are literally made up of water!); there is opportunity for things to move through the body more easily than the mind.
