The intention of this subtle, yet powerful, energy work is to create deep relaxation, speed healing, reduce pain, release stress and put the body, mind and emotions in a profound state of relaxation and ease.
Utilizing a gentle non-manipulative touch and therapeutic dialogue, somatic therapy breaks down the story of our life experiences and examines the way our story impacts our body. Specifically, it works with the fight, flight, freeze mechanisms living in our nervous system. To heal, we need to listen to the body because it communicates in ways words never could. Your body has been your companion through all of life’s events. It composes in all of its muscles, nerves, and in every cell, the story of YOU. Your body is where your spirit and its wisdom lives.
A single session can release long kept emotionally charged memories of the past, whether they are consciously remembered, felt in the body as pain or discomfort, or an undefined unpleasant feeling in general. While tapping is traditionally performed by a practitioner, individuals can effectively learn to ‘self-tap.’ Particularly helpful for those with post- traumatic stress disorder.
