What Are The Benefits Of Somatic Therapy?

Somatic therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps people deal with traumatic experiences. It can help people deal with life-threatening illnesses and post-traumatic stress disorder. It can also help people move forward and regain a sense of engagement in all aspects of their lives. It is beneficial for people of all ages and all walks of life.

Helps treat post-traumatic stress disorder:

Somatic therapy helps patients deal with their post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms by addressing the physical aspects of trauma. This technique focuses on physical sensations, imagery, and motor patterns and places less emphasis on thinking processes. This therapy can help patients find ways to process the trauma stored in their bodies, releasing the locked energy that causes symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. It can also help people deal with intrusive thoughts and emotional reactivity.

Helps with life-threatening illnesses:

People with chronic pain and other physical ailments may benefit from somatic therapy. To start the process, it is important to seek out a skilled practitioner who is knowledgeable about the body’s ability to process pain and other symptoms. A skilled practitioner can help people work through the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of their ailments. A person who undergoes somatic therapy may experience a decrease in markers of pain and blood pressure, as well as a more easeful way of being in relationships.

Helps you move forward:

Somatic therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps you to move forward from past traumas. It helps you to rewire the neural pathways in your brain so that you no longer go into “survival mode” but instead find a conscious emotional balance. You can start taking control of your life by letting go of negative thoughts and feelings and begin listening to your body’s messages. Too many people live on autopilot, ignoring the signs their bodies are sending them. Using somatic therapy to help you move forward can help you gain greater insight into your thoughts and your habits.

Helps you regain a sense of engagement with all areas of life:

In a session, your SE therapist works with you to create a range of resiliency, or a range of physiological and psychological responses, where you are not overwhelmed, and you can regain engagement with life. This allows for the most efficient healing recovery possible. With SE, you are guided to attend to the most significant sensations and your subtle motor impulses.
