Our bodies carry organic intelligence designed to self-heal.
Nervous System Integration does not require the re-telling or re-living of the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve-in a slow and supported way-the body's instinctual fight, flight and freeze responses.
Individuals locked in anxiety or rage apply effective techniques to relax into a growing sense of peace and safety. Those stuck in depression gradually find their feelings of hopelessness and numbness transformed into empowerment, triumph, and mastery.
Resolving the trauma launches corrective bodily experiences that contradict those of fear and helplessness. This resets the nervous system, restores inner balance, enhances resilience to stress, and increases people's vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life.
With support, exploration and expression of these deeper understandings, somatic therapy may facilitate this healing. With greater insight comes aliveness, creativity, self-regulation and a new-found self-awareness. This enables a deeper personal relationship and helps forge a stronger connection with self and others.
