Healing from an SE approach begins with reconnecting to our bodies. SE aims to resolve symptoms of stress, anxiety, and trauma that can accumulate in our bodies. SE offers a framework to assess where a person might be “stuck” in a stress/survival response and provides tools to resolve these states. SE tools can teach you how to settle and release physical tension and anxiety from your body.
- Somatic Therapy can help you learn how to settle and release physiological activation from your body. Very often this process helps people to reduce stress and return to a sense of regulation and mastery in their lives.
- Somatic Therapy can support you in learning how to attend to uncomfortable sensations in your body and gently unwind them through your conscious attention.
- Somatic Therapy is particularly useful in managing stress because so many of the symptoms are physiological.
- Somatic Therapy can be used with children, teenagers, and adults for anxiety, stress, trauma, and somatic symptoms.
