Understanding Somatic Experiencing

The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. This advanced trauma modality helps to release traumatic shock, which is key to recovering from PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma. Most people who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction have a long-history of attachment or developmental trauma. Treating this directly provides the best chance for a patient to thrive in sobriety.


Somatic Experiencing® helps assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these habituated responses. This method works to release this stored energy, and turn off this threat alarm that causes dysregulation and dissociation. SE® helps with trauma resolution and building resilience, making it effective in mental health and addiction treatment.


Like other somatic psychology approaches, Somatic Experiencing® utilizes a body-first approach to dealing with the problematic (and, oftentimes, physical) symptoms of trauma. This modality assesses the physical sensations that underlie our feelings, and uncovering our habitual behavior patterns to these feelings. In Somatic Experiencing®, the traumatic event isn’t what caused the trauma, but rather the overwhelmed response to the perceived life threat that is causing an unbalanced nervous system. The aim is to therefore assist in discharging the physical memory of the event and re-regulate the nervous system.
