SOMATIC EXPERIENCE

Somatic Experience (SE) is among the newest evidenced 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.

WHAT IS SOMATIC EXPERIENCE THERAPY?

Somatic Experiencing is a body oriented method to help treat individuals who suffer from PTSD and trauma disorders. 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 SE WORKS

SE essentially releases the traumatic shock that develops from either PTSD or trauma. If someone is essentially stuck in 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.
