Psychosomatic Therapy

Somatic therapy is a holistic approach to therapy that emphasizes the connection between the mind and body. This therapeutic approach focuses on the belief that emotional and psychological issues can manifest in the body as physical symptoms, and that by addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of a person's experience, healing and growth can occur.


In somatic therapy, the therapist works with the individual to help them become more aware of the physical sensations, movements, and gestures that are connected to their emotions and psychological experiences. The therapist may use a variety of techniques such as body awareness exercises, movement, touch, breathwork, and mindfulness practices to help the individual access and release stored emotions and trauma in the body.


By paying attention to the body and its sensations, somatic therapy aims to help individuals process and integrate past experiences, regulate their emotions, and develop a greater sense of self-awareness and resilience. Somatic therapy can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced trauma, chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and other emotional issues.


Somatic therapy can be conducted in individual, group, or couples therapy settings, and may be integrated with other therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or psychodynamic therapy. Somatic therapists are trained to work with the mind-body connection and help individuals develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their experiences through the body.
