SOMATIC ENERGETIC WORK
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” –Nikola Tesla
Using the innate ability that humans have to overcome trauma, somatic energetic work can encourage and utilise the awareness in the body to assist people to reorganise and at times relieve the physical, emotional and physiological effects of trauma related health problems. While working at a gentle pace to ensure that the changes made to the nervous system are done so without overwhelm. Somatic Energetic work may help in restoring relaxation and wholeness in the aftermath of trauma or after periods of chronic stress.
In the wild, animals are threatened but rarely traumatised, as they instead utilise innate mechanisms to regulate and let go of the high energy arousal associated with the survival mechanism of fight, flight or freeze. These allow the animals to deal with trauma and then enables them to return to homeostasis in the aftermath of highly 'charged or triggered' life threatening experiences.
Although humans have a similar mechanism within them, this system is often overridden by the 'rational' part of the brain which then prevents the complete discharge of survival energies and therefore the return to equilibrium.
