Somatic Experiencing® is a body-awareness approach to trauma, the result of over forty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Peter Levine. I chose to begin this training when I noticed that the mind and our past experiencing greatly affect our current reality, including physical and emotional pain.
Human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma. SE® restores self-regulation, and returns a sense of aliveness, relaxation and wholeness to traumatized individuals who have had these precious gifts taken away. Dr. Levine has applied his work to combat veterans, rape survivors, Holocaust survivors, auto accident and post surgical trauma, chronic pain sufferers, and even to infants after suffering traumatic births.
The principles of Somatic Experiencing® underlie the work I do with clients, on and off the treatment table.
