Movement Psychotherapy Practice
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”.
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.
