Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing therapy was created by Dr. Peter Levine and is trauma work. Even a small, perhaps insignificant event can have major consequences as a traumatic situation. At that moment we stiffen and feel fear. The life energy gets stuck in the system and becomes a load that can manifest in a malaise or symptom, but can also remain silent for years before manifesting. With Somatic Experiencing, we release, little by little, the energy that has been held back through gestures, orientation and sensations, listening to the organic impulse. The person is thus restored to vitality and strength. Integrity and awareness increases, which benefits the person's health. This method is very well attuned to Polarity Therapy.
