Somatic Experiencing Touch Work For Trauma and Stress Processing
Somatic Experiencing touch work is an advanced skill applied to the body as a whole. It is NOT to be mistaken for massage or manipulation of the body in any way. Used in conjunction with Somatic Experiencing verbal psychotherapy, touch work provides greater access to gently releasing bound or braced energies in the body. These energies are types of body tension patterns that can result in migraines, anxiety, physical pain and auto immune issues, to name a few. Touch can also stimulate the body to move towards regulation when shutdown and collapsed presentations appear. This shutdown often presents as chronic fatigue, depression, low blood pressure, disassociation, and some mental health conditions.
