Somatic Therapy

Somatic Therapy

Somatic therapy primarily helps those who have experienced trauma access their body informed wisdom. Listening to your body’s messages is vital to coming into your authentic self. Our culture has encouraged us to ignore the signals our body gives to us. We want a quick fix, and for our doctors and therapists to prescribe a pill to take the pain away. With somatic therapy, you can listen to your body-informed wisdom, and you can get to the root of your suffering by listening to your body’s messages instead of silencing them with substances.

When you tune into your body’s wisdom, you can gain more present moment awareness, becoming more courageous, and connected. Once we can learn to validate our own internal emotional experiences, we become less scared of our body’s messages.

The physical body has high intelligence, constantly sending us information. In Western society, we tend to ignore the signals being sent until there is a major medical issue. If we learn to quiet down and tune in, there is a lot we can learn.

Signs there is a lack of body informed wisdom:

  •  Mental/Physical fatigue
  • Poor sleep routine
  •  Lack of motivation
  • Being emotionally triggered without realizing the root cause
  • Holding onto trauma and emotional wounds physically
  •  Feelings of stagnation in life

Somatic Therapy can help you tap into your body informed wisdom.

We have helped people who have felt the way that you do–unmotivated, and feeling triggered and stagnant.

Learning to tap into your body’s wisdom is a beautiful process.

It involves turning your awareness inward and becoming the “observer” instead of a prisoner to your emotions and behaviors. You take back your power by engaging in preventative physical and mental health practices, like attending regular appointments, feeding your body nourishing foods, and moving as your body was intended to move.

Michael specializes in Martial Arts and the Yin and Yang Energy connection.
