Somatic Experiencing is a body-based model of healing that works to resolve trauma and stressors. We work together with your nervous system to help notice patterns of activation and settling. In SE, you learn tools to help you regulate and move through trauma or stress.
"The Somatic Experiencing method works to release this stored energy and turn off this threat alarm that causes severe dysregulation and dissociation. SE helps people understand this body response to trauma and work through a “body first” approach to healing." ~from Somatic Experiencing International
“The journey toward a vital, spontaneous life means more than alleviating symptoms – it means transformation. . . Transformation is the process of changing something in relation to its polar opposite. . . This is a profound metamorphosis.”—Dr. Peter Levine, Somatic Experiencing pioneer
