Somatic Experiencing

Somatic experiencing is a specialized modality that works with symptoms of trauma and stress related disorders from the "bottom up" perspective (body, emotion, thought) allowing for the stored energy (that became trapped during times of emotional overwhelm) to work through and release. According to the Somatic Experiencing International (SEI) website, SE resolves symptoms of stress, shock, and trauma that accumulate in our bodies. When we are stuck in patterns of fight, flight, or freeze, SE helps us release, recover, and become more resilient. The large majority of people worldwide have traumatic experiences in their lifetime, which can have major impacts on their health and well-being. Rates of trauma exposure are estimated to be anywhere from 60-100% in the general population.
