SOMATIC MOVEMENT OVERVIEW

Movement can be our secret ingredient to deepening our connection with our body


Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that looks at the connection of mind and body to uncover and heal deep trauma. Somatic therapy sometimes combines talk therapy with physical techniques such as dance, yoga, or vocal work to help release pent up stress and tension.

WellSet: How can somatic movement help heal the body?

NIELI: Somatic Movement Therapy is a modality that allows a person to truly understand the wisdom of the body. A skilled practitioner draws upon integrative body-mind practices to guide a person through the process of recognizing sensations and patterns. This work can be done in person yet also translates effectively for virtual or telehealth sessions since the practitioner cues a person through sequences and mirrors movements. The combination of education, verbal adjustments, and feedback facilitates transformation. In this work, a person can develop greater body-mind awareness, repattern physical movements, and learn techniques to release trauma in the nervous system. The set of integrative practices allow people to process past and present grief, release old conditioning, let go of unhealthy belief systems, and remove the limiting beliefs that are holding a person back. A Somatic Movement Therapist teaches a person a powerful set of tools to experience greater vitality, resilience, freedom, and authenticity.
