What Is Somatic Healing

Updated: Dec 24, 2023

Somatic healing refers to an approach to healing and therapy that emphasizes the connection between the, soul, mind, emotions and the body. The term "somatic" is derived from the Greek word "soma," meaning the body. This approach recognizes the intricate relationship between psychological experiences, emotional well-being, and bodily sensations. Somatic healing practices aim to address and release tension, trauma, and stress that may be stored in the body.

Key elements and practices associated with somatic healing include:

  1. Body Awareness:

  2. Mind-Body Connection:

  3. Breathwork:

  4. Movement and Dance:

  5. Body-Centered Psychotherapy:

  6. Trauma-Informed Care:

  7. Massage and Bodywork:

  8. Yoga and Tai Chi:

  9. Biofeedback:

  10. Grounding Techniques:

  11. Expressive Arts Therapy:

Somatic healing approaches are holistic, recognizing that spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well-being are interconnected. By incorporating the body into the healing process, somatic practices aim to help individuals release tension, process emotions, and promote overall wellness. It's important to note that somatic healing may be used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches based on individual needs and preferences. Some of the tools I use are Reiki, Meditation and Hypnosis.
