Somatic Therapy

A type of therapy that aims to treat mental and emotional health through the mind/body connection.

What is Somatic Therapy?

Somatic Therapy, also known as Somatic Experiencing,  is different from other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in that it incorporates body-oriented modalities such as dance, breathwork, and meditation to support mental healing, while other types of therapy are concerned primarily with the mind.  

Most Somatic Therapy sessions include both talk therapy and mind-body exercises in tandem. Somatic therapy operates off the idea that what happens to you in your life is stored not only in your mind but also in your body. By focusing on both the physical sensations in your body and the discussion of your problems, it is a more comprehensive approach to therapy.

Common Conditions Treated

Somatic therapy is often used to help mitigate the mental health impact of living with a chronic or serious medical condition.

Because of its focus on grounding and mindfulness, this therapy can be an effective option for anyone looking to get more in touch with themselves and their experiences in life.

In the event of an emergency, it’s crucial to seek help as soon as possible. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, also known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, is available 24/7 to provide support and resources.

You can access this service by dialing 988 or by calling 1-800-273-8255.

In the case of an immediate danger to yourself or others, calling 911 should be your first course of action.

How Does It Work?

A Somatic Therapist uses a body-centric approach and techniques (such as acupressure, hypnosis, breathwork, guided movement, etc.) helping to release stress, tension, and trauma from the body.
