Somatic Experience

What Is Somatic Experience Therapy?

Somatic Experience (SE) is among the newest evidence-based approaches for treating PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. SE focuses on the restoring of the central nervous system back to equilibrium to give the individual a greater sense of safety. The idea is that someone suffering from PTSD and trauma will experience sustained healing when the nervous system regains equilibrium. . When one is stuck in a fight, freeze, or flight physiological state due to a traumatic experience, SE provides the function of resilience and ease to the cumulative stress product.

How Somatic Experience Works

SE essentially releases the traumatic shock that develops from either PTSD or trauma. If someone is essentially stuck in a self-protective motor response from a traumatic experience (say fight or flight), SE completes the response and releases the survival mode energy that was bound to the body. This allows the root causes of the trauma to be determined.

Somatic Experience is known for helping (but not limited to) the following:

Depression Disorders
