Somatic Experiencing® (SE), developed by Peter A. Levine, is based on the observation that animals in nature are hardly traumatized even though they regularly face life threats. When animals face threat, their bodies produce energy needed to survive. Once threat is over, animals instinctively release energy and come back to their equilibrium. Like animals, we humans basically have similar responses to threat. However, we can fail to release energy when our highly-developed neo-cortex overrides the natural release process of our instincts and body. This unreleased and unmetabolized energy ends up being trapped in our body and may cause nervous system dysregulation and induce all kinds of symptoms.

In this work your nervous system is encouraged to release and metabolize the trapped energy and restore its innate resiliency and inherent capacity to self-regulate. As a result, you can experience more freedom physically, emotionally and mentally.
