Somatic Experiencing® is essentially a study of how energy moves through complex systems. There is an optimal organization of body rhythms, systems, and structures – and endless variations from the ideal. No two systems are the same. But every one has the potential for better organization within their organism, and more ease of energy movement through it.
When a nervous system is faced with a stress that creates overwhelm, and doesn’t get a chance to settle fully afterwards, it can be difficult to regulate back to a state of ‘normal’. This can result in chronic over/under-stimulation of the nervous system and resulting body functions. Over time, symptoms can manifest, such as pain, anxiety, disease, tension, or even just habitual movements that keep us out of balance.
The good news is, recovery from trauma is possible. With Somatic Experiencing®, we can explore together what keeps you locked in, how to find the way out of the cycle of trauma, and back to your best health. Your nervous system is hard-wired to know how to recover from both cumulative and traumatic stresses.
