Somatic Experiencing 


Somatic Experiencing emphasizes client power and titrated work so that it is one of the most gentle and safe trauma healing modalities around today.  

Somatic experiencing (SE) is a therapy for the resolution of trauma. SE helps to resolve trauma through the mind body connection. SE utilizes autonomic nervous system function, vertical integration, and the connection between the client and themselves to assist in trauma healing.

When a therapist utilizes SE, the client will be asked to track body sensations and impulses for movement in the body. SE therapists sometimes utilize touch, weights, movement, and visual techniques to help integrate trauma into the rest of the brain.
