Somatic experience 

A body-oriented way of processing  Trauma


Session 60Min - CHF 144.-, 70Min CHF 168.-

Somatic experience is a trauma therapy method founded by Peter A. Levine. It is used for treating traumatic nervous tension which is stored in the body after overwhelming experiences, as well as to resolve pain and vegetative-emotional overreactions.

The human organism is capable of returning to a natural, living state of relaxation and healing after intensive traumatic experiences by self-regulation.

Trauma therapy is applied when a person has the ground pulled out from under them, when healthy orientation is lost or someone is no longer themselves because of fear or immobility.

It is applied to encourage relaxed emotional expressions in order to promote the ability to better deal with challenges and to mobilise people to solidify or to reduce hyperactivity.

Post-traumatic stress disorders can arise when natural self-regulation has no chance to process the experience adequately.

This includes

Impaired concentration/nervousness

Hyperactivity/hypersensitivity

Depression/anxiety/panic

Tiredness/exhaustion

Forgetfulness/increased fright reactions

Immobility of the muscular apparatus

Emotional insensibility/tantrums

Despair/feeling of untouchability/numbness

Pressure/addictions

Undefinable pain

Relationship difficulties

Difficulty breathing/indigestion

etc.


In a somatic experience session, the nervous system is helped to reduce unnecessary overactive reactions to outer stimulus and to react to overwhelming situations in a suitable way in the here and now.

It serves to resolve coupling with traumatic memories and to allow old patterns of behaviour to be replaced by new forms of interaction.
