I stumbled upon Somatic Experiencing on my own journey to heal
I had learned so much about trauma and cptsd - I had all the head knowledge needed to shift out of trauma... but my body wouldn't let me. Between my implicit memory and the fight/flight/freeze/fawn trauma responses that were running my life, I simply could not shift out of the trauma - until I found Somatic Experiencing
Rather than focusing only on thoughts, emotions, or the story of the traumatic event(s), Somatic Experiencing includes working with the unmetabolized energy that gets stuck in the body and the somatic trauma responses that are stuck in the 'on' position.
Trauma leaves an energetic reverberation - an echo - stuck in the tissues, nerves and joints of the body. When we can learn how to relate to this stuck energy, when we learn how to build the capacity to be with this uncomfortable energy then we can shift from symptom management to deep core healing that goes far beyond symptomsSIGN UP FOR SOMATIC EXPERIENCING SESSIONS
