“Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that looks at the connection of mind and body and uses both psychotherapy and physical therapies for healing”.

Somatic therapy or body-oriented therapy focuses on the connection of the mind and body. Somatic therapists use exercises, dance improvisation, and physical techniques together with talking therapy.

Those methods help to release the tension that is negatively affecting your physical and emotional wellbeing. In body-based therapy, attention is given to the relationship between the physical symptom and what is going on in your life.

The focus is on the link between the physical stress and the emotional or mental issue that might cause this stress to sit for a long time in your body.

When is Somatic Therapy used?

“Somatic therapy can help people who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, grief, addiction, problems with relationships, and sexual function, as well as issues related to trauma and abuse. Those for whom traditional remedies have not been helpful for chronic physical pain, digestive disorders and other medical issues may also benefit from somatic therapy. Somatic therapy techniques can be used in both individual and group therapy settings”.

My vision

The body in movement or stillness carries meaning and tells us a story. Whatever sitting, walking, standing, awake or asleep, our body is the medium to our life journey and our daily self expression. Understanding the body and mind connection can give us access to a deep understanding of who we are. Movement is for me the greatest manifestation of the body and mind connection of the inner and intimate creativity that resides in our bodies.
