Somatic Experiencing

Holistic Healing

Somatic Experiencing®

Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented approach to treating trauma and its related symptoms. The large and small traumas that we experience in our lives get held in our nervous systems. Over time we can develop symptoms of dis-ease as our bodies “hold” the traumas of a lifetime. Somatic Experiencing allows the body to discharge the unhealthy things we hold onto, without having to re-live the traumas themselves. As we work through what the body and nervous systems need to process, we allow the body to work in its most efficient state, with the ease we were meant to function with.

Somatic Experiencing is a gentle conversation, centering on what feels most alive in the body, to listen to the nervous system and allow it to discharge. This is done while sitting in chairs or sometimes, to facilitate more movement, by laying on a massage table with gentle physical contact from the practitioner.

Here’s a great New York Times article on Somatic Healing by Daniel Bergner:

Want to Fix Your Mind? Let Your Body Talk.
Somatic therapy is surging, with the promise that true healing may reside in focusing on the physical rather than the mental.

Energy Healing

Energetic Healing is a natural and holistic approach to wellness that focuses on balancing the body’s energy centers. This practice helps to restore the body’s own healing abilities and complements traditional medical treatments. Energy healing is based on the idea that the human body is composed of energy, and that it can become imbalanced or blocked in some areas, which can lead to physical or emotional illnesses. Practitioners use various techniques to manipulate and restore the energy flow, such as Reiki or acupressure. By connecting with the body’s natural energy channels, energy healing can bring relaxation, pain relief, and overall well-being.

CranialSacral Therapy

CranialSacral Therapy (CST) is a holistic practice that uses gentle touch to release tension and improve the functioning of the bodily systems. This therapy is based on the idea that the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that surrounds the brain and spinal cord has a rhythmic pulse, which is affected by emotional stress and physical injury. The underlying theory of CST is that if tension is released from the CSF and connective tissue, the body is better able to heal itself. Practitioners perform this technique on areas of the head, spine, and pelvis. CST has been used to address a wide range of conditions including headaches, chronic pain, and anxiety.

CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
