The Transformative Power of Somatic Therapy

In somatic therapy, we focus on the intimate connection between your body and mind. Our skilled somatic therapists use a variety of techniques to help align your thoughts, bodily sensations, and actions, promoting holistic healing.

Somatic therapy is backed by ample research demonstrating its effectiveness in addressing issues such as relational trauma, insecure attachment, and anxiety. Guided by the principles of interpersonal neurobiology, our aim is to provide you with a transformative and healing experience.

Regulate your nervous system with somatic therapy

Body awareness plays a pivotal role in the healing process. By connecting physical symptoms with emotions, somatic therapy enables healing on a profound level.

Understanding your body’s cues  and internal sensations is key for emotional regulation. This influences the limbic system, which is responsible for emotions and behaviors. It also assists in regulating and balancing the nervous system, which governs the “fight or flight” response, helping you to achieve a state of calmness and manage stress effectively.

Release stored trauma with somatic experiencing

Somatic experiencing is an effective intervention for processing and healing trauma that is stored in the body. Trauma can leave emotions stuck in your body, causing nervous system and emotional dysregulation. Our somatic psychotherapy works to free these emotions, easing pain and stress symptoms. We use techniques such as Somatic Experiencing (SE), Pendulation, Titration, and Sequencing to help your body let go of stuck patterns from trauma.

These methods guide you through the physical sensations tied to traumatic memories to change how your brain processes this information. This shifts the emotions linked to these memories. Choosing somatic therapy with us will bring you relief from trauma symptoms like flashbacks, trouble sleeping, and self-sabotaging behaviors.

Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy

Enhancing Your Well-being with Somatic Therapy

Somatic therapy offers a blend of experiential techniques designed to improve your breathing and posture, reduce muscular tension, and tackle the physical effects of trauma. By incorporating sequencing and experiential practices, you're encouraged to embrace physical and emotional release, which might manifest through trembling or tears as part of your healing journey.

Empowering Yourself Through Somatic Awareness

This approach equips you with essential skills like setting personal boundaries and enhancing somatic intuition, empowering you to express and manage your limits more effectively by tuning into your body's cues. It's a comprehensive strategy aimed at healing both the body and mind from the impacts of trauma, guiding you toward greater self-awareness and emotional resilience.

Enhance emotional intelligence with somatic therapy

Somatic therapy uses descriptive language to help you articulate and process internal experiences like tension, anxiety, and traumatic memories. By labeling and understanding these sensations, you can cultivate compassion, transforming them from overwhelming to informative signals about your needs and priorities.

This facilitates self-regulation, fostering a positive relationship with your body and aiding in managing pain and psychosomatic conditions. With the help of co-regulation techniques, you can nurture emotional connections and achieve balance in your relationships. Somatic therapy can help you better connect with yourself and others.

Somatic therapy for couples

We offer somatic therapy for couples, focusing on the strong connection between mind, body, and emotions to enhance relationship satisfaction. Our therapists lead couples through exercises that engage with each partner’s nervous system, fostering empathy and understanding.

By addressing the physical manifestations of emotions in therapy, we tap into their healing potential, improving communication and connection. This approach lowers stress and enhances the relationship’s strength, resulting in lasting fulfillment.
