Trauma healing with Somatic Experiencing®
Physical and emotional injuries caused by accident, surgery, disease, violence, natural disaster, experience of war, or a painful loss may lead to a highly increased level of energy in the nervous system. This in turn may manifest in psychological or physical stress symptoms such as whiplash trauma, depression, panic attacks, indigestion, hyper-arousal, sleeping disorders, etc... These may occur as a consequence, if the natural survival instinct and defense reaction of the nervous system to a traumatic incident could not be fully completed or accomplished for whatever reason.
If the inherent regulating forces of the nervous system are not able to cope with the threat, the nervous system continuously sends the signal to be stuck in danger.
Somatic Experiencing, developed by Dr. Peter Levine is a holistic profound method to overcome and resolve shock and trauma. Therefore the compressed activating energy held within the body will gently be invited to be freed.
Together the revitalization of the physical survival- and defense mechanism will be explored step by step in a sensitive way and enables one to leave the freeze, the state of exhaustion and hyper-arousal back to the original joy of life, back to full vitality, back to connection with oneself, and to reconnect with the environment and one's full potential.
This verbal bodywork can be done with or without touch.
„A Trauma suppresses the unfolding of life. It disrupts our connection to ourselves and with other people, with nature and with our spiritual source“ Peter A. Levine
