Somatic Attachment Inter-relationship Focusing
Somatic healing is aimed to support PTSD through mind and body connective movement and psychotherapy. It works to bring balance to the nervous system through a body based technique. This modality is rooted in somatic psychology, a body-oriented approach to psychology.
HOW IT HELPS
This type of practice helps heal on a cellular level. The theory behind somatic approaches is that the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are all related and connected to each other. As a result, the stress of past emotional and traumatic events affects the central nervous system and can cause changes in the body and even in body language, often resulting in habits, behavioral patterning and posture as well as physical pain. Through developing awareness of the mind-body connection and using specific interventions, somatic therapy helps you to release the tension, anger, frustration and other emotions that remain in your body from these past negative experiences. The goal is to help free you from the stress and pain that is preventing you from fully engaging in your life. This is a body-oriented therapeutic, it is based on a multidisciplinary intersection of physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics and has been clinically applied for more than four decades. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine.
Human are not born with anxiety, fear, anger or any other attachments to emotions. Emotions simply mean ENERGY IN MOTION. When an experience is not fully flushed out from childhood upbringings, trauma or shock the nervous system becomes dis-regulated. Ancestral, intergenerational and collective trauma play a role in how people relate in relationship with Self and others.
WHAT IS AN ATTACHMENT?
The Somatic Experiencing™ approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma. By the age of one we determine our sense of secure or insecure attachment styles in relationships. This sense of interrelating is based upon the caregivers example in early childhood development. Attachment styles can be healed through somatic awareness and rewire the brain to operate on new neural-pathways. Strengthen your window of tolerance and the resilience window in your nervous system. Learn how to work with your emotional states with curiosity. Begin to identify how you move through your fight/flight/freeze OR rest and digest states. Do you experience high or low anxiety, being preoccuiped, avoidant or disorganized ?
