Somatic Experiencing – One of the most effective trauma healing tools
Developed by Dr Peter Levine, somatic therapy – sometimes known as somatic experiencing – incorporates the mind, body, and spirit in therapeutic healing. It uses a body-centric approach to reconnect the mind and body to treat various mental health conditions.
Somatic Experiencing aims to bring awareness to the body and mind. Traditional talk therapy can help people work through mental and emotional issues, but somatic therapy can target deep-seated trauma stored in the nervous system.
Somatic Experiencing has many proven benefits for those struggling with mental health conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Bringing awareness back to the body and reconditioning it to release the trauma stored deep within the nervous system can improve many symptoms of mental health disorders.
