Somatic Experiencing is a body-centered approach to trauma that is based on the research and clinical work of Dr. Peter Levine. Somatic Experiencing assumes that all individuals have the innate ability to heal from overwhelming events when the right conditions are created. Somatic Experiencing restores physiological and emotional balance and helps individuals feel more alive, balanced and whole. This work is experiential and is most useful with those who have difficulty regulating their emotions, are unable to feel calm and relaxed and need more effective ways to manage stress. Somatic experiencing helps individuals resolve difficult experiences from the past that are affecting their ability to live life more fully in the present.
