What is Somatic Bodywork?

Somatic bodywork with breathwork and energy sessions offer a holistic approach to well-being, intertwining physical, mental, and energetic dimensions of healing. Through somatic bodywork, practitioners address muscular tension and postural imbalances, promoting greater mobility and release of stored trauma. Breathwork techniques facilitate conscious regulation of the breath, fostering relaxation, stress reduction, and emotional release. Energy work focuses on balancing subtle energy systems, aiming to remove blockages and restore vitality. Together, these modalities create a synergistic environment for deep relaxation, inner exploration, and holistic healing, fostering a sense of wholeness and integration in body, mind, and spirit.

What Happens In a Somatic Bodywork Session?

Before each session, we chat about the person’s goals and concerns, customizing the session to suit their needs. Using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), we can explore underlying patterns or beliefs that might be affecting them, leading to transformative changes in thinking and actions.

During the session, the individual lies down on a yoga mat or masage table in a comfortable position while music plays in the background. As I perform somatic bodywork techniques, such as massage or gentle manipulation, I guide the individual through different breathing exercises. These exercises are designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, inducing a state of deep relaxation and allowing for the release of stored trauma and tension. By balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, the body can gradually return to a state of homeostasis, promoting relaxation and facilitating the healing process.

In addition to bodywork and breathwork, energy work is incorporated into the session. Through subtle manipulations of the body’s energy field, blockages can be cleared, and the flow of energy restored, further enhancing the individual’s sense of well-being and vitality.
