Sometimes you can't talk your way out of trauma.
Your body holds onto stress, emotions, memories, and thoughts.
Your body absorbs everything you experience and communicates through sensations.
Maybe you feel tense, numb, heavy, or overwhelmed.
Your experiences affect both your mental and physical self and your nervous system, which controls your breath, digestion, muscles, and organs.
Sometimes your body reacts in ways that don't make sense given the situation.
You might show physical signs of:
exhaustion or overwhelm
pain or illness
inability to feel or sense
Your symptoms are a sign your body wants to release unresolved trauma from your body.
Somatic Therapy is a proven approach to helping people heal from painful experiences.
Trauma and pain can lead the mind and body to disconnect and dysregulate.
Somatic therapy is a holistic whole-person approach that considers the relationship between your mind, body, and emotions.
Combining talk therapy and body therapy can help you understand your experiences and how you learned to cope.
Bridging the connection between mind and body can help you:
regulate your emotions
learn to trust your body
find acceptance and power
improve your mental, physical, emotional, and relational health
A somatic therapist can help you process and release the tension that keeps you stuck.
Working with a trained somatic therapist can help you live based on preference instead of fear.
You can transform old traumas and live in the present moment.
When you feel safe enough to unify your mind and body, you are free to release old defenses and create new responses.
Your body is amazing - you are designed to heal yourself.
It is possible to thrive when you aren't stuck in a state of survival.
You can feel better and move forward with ease and comfort.
