Healing Through Ancient Wisdom

Somatic Healing

For Trauma and Emotional Alchemy

The word “somatic” is derived from the Greek word “soma” which means “the living body known from within”.

The body has memories of trauma that can only be understood through the language of the Soma.

Somatic Healing provides a powerful and direct path into the body’s wisdom and our innate capacities for healing. We work with the body to help you find its natural rhythm of self-regulation.

Often times, trauma disconnects individuals from their body in order to avoid feeling emotional or physical discomfort. Over time, this response becomes a habitual pattern and we lose touch with our deepest feelings.

By using the direct physical experience of the body as a healing tool, a client can be helped by being present in their body’s sensations, creating a sense of safety and control, reducing symptoms while working through old wounds to help bring forth insights that our thinking mind can’t access.

By starting to listen to the signals of your body, you begin to create a sense of internal safety, which allows you to heal

I offer the tools to work with individuals to enhance mental, emotional, physical and biological functions in order to bring optimal well-being and healing. Clients will be guided to engage in unchoreographed and spontaneous dance and movement to bypass the conscious mind and increase body awareness.

The process works at the deepest levels of the nervous system helping to reset and engage the body in a mindful way in order to free up and release the stress hormones and tension from the body.

I carefully observe and guide the session by tracking both physical and emotional responses. Through means of exploring various somatic practices and interventions.

We must experience ourselves in an embodied way. This type of healing can offer a variety of benefits that calms the mind, emotionally regulate, enhanced body related self confidence, and reframe our connection to ourselves and the environment.To promote a feeling of well being, safety, and impulse for life. 

Empower your self, through your self!

“Words label what we already know; expressive dance and movement reveals the unknown. Sensations, feelings, emotions, and images that have long been buried in our bodies are revealed through movement. This is also useful in shifting old patterns, habits, and destructive belief systems….dance and renew your life force. When these dances are connected to our lives, they bring about dramatic release and change in our will to live.”
