Q)What is Somatic Experiencing?
A) Somatic Experiencing developed by Dr. Peter Levine, highlights the fact that to overcome traumas or emotional challenges one needs to go deeper than just cognitive awareness. Frequently, just talking about a past trauma or event is not enough to help one fully move past it. What is needed is for the nervous system that is holding those experiences, on the body level, to release and recover from those events. During a session the client sits opposite the practitioner and is guided to begin noticing the sensations in their body while processing the events or struggles that they are having. This process allows for deep and effective healing and takes into account the full complexity of who we each are.
Q) What is Craniosacral Therapy?
A) Cranial Sacral Therapy evolved from Cranial Osteopathy. The Craniosacral method is able to access emotional tensions, stress, and traumas that are stuck in the body and help release them. It helps balances the nervous system and enables one to overcome anxiety, feel more grounded, and help one get more deeply in touch with themselves and their emotions. The practitioner uses a light touch–generally no more than the weight of a nickel – to listen to and balance the nervous system. Craniosacral Therapy can also be extremely helpful dealing with back and neck pain as well as headaches and migraines.
