The idea is to recognize and open the blockages that are in body and emotions. Then it is possible to start to build and maintain better balance between physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual levels. Session is an exploration of the relationship
of cause and consequence. Psychological bodywork helps also to get new insights of the behavior patterns and then begin gradually to change dysfunctional patterns toward a bit better ones.
What happens in the session?
When coming to a Somatic Therapy session I recommend that you are wearing comfortable and stretching clothing so that it is easy to move when needed. One session can include many different methods: discussion, touch, movement, sound healing, energy work,
breathing, meditation, drawing, listening to the bodily impact of emotions and thoughts. Each session is different because there is no exact form or pattern but the session is guided by my intuition.
Why this kind
of therapy is needed?
Sometimes we don’t remember the causes of the trauma or even that we have experienced some trauma yet the effects show up in our daily life and relationships. Respectful and safe physical touch together with
insightful discussion can open the mind and related emotions better than just talking. (That happened to me anyway and I have seen it happening to so many others).
It is well known that stress of any kind can lead to physical problems or even illness.
Our physical bodies have memory much like our minds. While we may sometimes forget the psychological, emotional and spiritual issues bringing disruption to our lives, our body stores the unpleasant or undesired memories and experiences them in our tissues,
our organs and even our digestive and immune systems. This has been proven countless times.
Some of the causes of the stress could be childhood abuse, neglect, shame, criticism and grief. These are just few of the many types of experiences that can
become deeply seated in the physical body and cause problems. The roots of these problems have tentacles extending into each of the four dimensions of our being. Integral healing addresses them all together.
to expect from Somatic Therapy?
The results can be quite remarkable. Many people describe the experience as a form of deep release followed by an opening or awakening of self and leading to new insights while helping to relieve emotional
and physical pain and suffering. New ways to function and strengthen have been found so that situations which were scary, distressing and difficult earlier might lose their grip and daily life and relationships have started to become easier and better. The
whole life feels happier.
Of course just one session doesn’t do the work but usually there are more than that needed, but it is possible to get some relief even from one session and at least it is possible to get some tools to cope better in the
