A holistic approach to trauma defines trauma not as an event, but rather as a disruption and overwhelm to our body-mind’s capacity to adapt, thrive, and flourish.
Trauma can occur when:
* There is too much too soon
* There is too much for too long
* There is not enough for too long
* Power and agency have been taken away from the person or collective
* The stressors outweigh the resources available to navigate them
* When our primal protective instincts, intuitions, and responses are thwarted
* There is not enough time, space, or permission to heal
'Soma,' meaning 'the living body known from within,' underscores our approach, focusing on experiencing wholeness through mind-body integration. Trauma can create a disconnect, leaving us feeling alienated from our own bodies. Somatic work acts as a powerful path to healing, leveraging the deep connection between body and mind.
Through somatic techniques, you'll learn to sense and regulate your physiology, cultivating internal resources and compassionate self-awareness. This journey invites you into a deeper relationship with your body, offering time and space to unwind trauma and restore well-being, guiding you from disconnection to a state of integrated healing.
