Somatic Experiencing (SE)


Somatic Experiencing® SE™ is a body-oriented approach to healing trauma and stress disorders. It seeks to discharge “traumatic shock” from the body and nervous system, within a safe tolerance level. It helps to renegotiate past experiences that create physiological and psychological dysfunction and pain. SE™ integrated with bodywork can increase a person's capacity for challenging body sensations and suppressed emotions. It is a way to slow down and slowly expand the nervous system, and encourage the resolution of blocked fight, flight or freeze energy. SE™ was discovered and developed by Dr. Peter A. Levine for over 45 years and has been proven to be “key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.” (Read more at www.traumahealing.org)
