How Does Somatic Experiencing Work?

While it is ultimately unknown how healing truly occurs, modern science and physics have observed that it is possible for the mind to affect matter in a subtle (apparently non-physical) way.

SE™ is a therapeutic modality that deals directly with the biological structures upon which the nervous system is based. 

Somatic Experiencing™ is a short-term therapy for releasing and transforming all types of accumulated stress, shock and trauma from your body and mind.

SE™ is not psychotherapy or psychiatry, it is a naturalistic healing process developed by neuro-physiologist Peter Levine.

When we are challenged by a situation such as an accident or attack, our bodies are designed to protect themselves. If our defensive responses are repeatedly thwarted, we begin to carry that energy within us as traumatic accumulated stress.

If you have difficulty ‘letting go’ and continue to suffer after these or similar situations:

- Accidents
- Divorce (as a spouse or child)
- Loss of a loved one
- Abuse
- Addiction
- Medical diagnosis
- Compulsive habits
- Repeated emotional trauma

We can help you release the undelying ‘shock’ in your nervous system so that you can bounce back to vibrancy and fullness.
Liberation from the past is possible, all you need is the willingness!

We can work with you in English or Spanish


SE™ works primarily with three phases of processing within the brain stem. The procedural execution of these steps keeps us alive and thriving in three different ways:

1. Orientation to the here-and now within the external environment as a felt sense within the organism, and engaging in social interaction (i.e. cooperation, reproduction, feeding, etc.).
2. Alerting the nervous system of impending danger, re-directing energy within the organism to prime for action, and warning others in the group with us.
3. Executing the self-protective response as needed (in concert with the higher brains) as genetically encoded in the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System). This is divided into three hard-wired responses:
a) Flight (I'm getting the hell out of here!)
b) Fight (I couldn't get away and now I'm going to hurt you!)
c) Freeze (you've got me! I am helpless...so I'll faint or feign death until you leave) 

Research has shown that this system works beautifully in all animals including humans.  However, it is clear that animals are not traumatized by these experiences while humans are.
The reason for this lies deeply embedded within the development of agricultural and later industrial civilization. Beyond a critical number of individuals in a group or tribe, the bottom-up processing implied above begins to become disorganized.  Humans have developed rules and regulations to inhibit their natural organic responses to stimuli (as initiated within the neo-cortex), thereby disorganizing the procedural execution of instructions within the ANS. People now chronically suffer from accumulated stress and non-specific syndromes relating to situational or developmental trauma that were unheard of even in the recent past.
Humans’ neo-cortex  have unwittingly moved away from the genetically programmed bottom-up processing of the ANS where every action arising within the basic structures of the ANS and felt sense of the body propagates ‘upward ‘ to the neo-cortex  and to phase-appropriate response. In the ‘modern’ top-down modality of processing (literally an inversion of the functional reality of the organism) we find ourselves ‘rationalizing’ or trying to co-opt our natural responses, resulting in the inhibition of our self-protective and self-nurturing responses via coercive measures processed within the neo-cortex. The net result is behavior inappropriate to the phasic nature of the ANS and inappropriate to the demands of the environment. This results in accumulated or chronic stress as the organism begins to bind its energy of activation as syndromes that manifest in the body/mind complex.
SE™ works by restoring the bottom-up processing of the ANS and eliciting the arousal of what is called observer within the systems of the organism. The aim of the process is to discover, identify and then re-negotiate the energy of arousal within the ANS so that it can be safely discharged without resulting in overwhelming emotion (freeze).
The process of restoring the ANS and organism to phase-appropriate coherence results in the return to organic natural self in harmony with the environment and others.
The net effect is a re-establishment of the triune organism’s (mind, feeling and instinct) innate ability and resourcefulness to fully orient to time and space, the here-and-now in which the organism awaits recognition and embrace.


The mind is capable of entering into a relationship with the body through active sensation. The resulting interaction engages the primary functions of the human body: Mind, Feeling/Emotions, Physical/Somatic perception. The unifying factor in this action is INTENTION or WILL to heal. The blending of these different levels causes the whole complex to relax and open to the Qi (pure energy) surrounding us in Nature - of itself in a continuous state of harmonious balance.

The Intention to heal can bring a person's mind into direct contact with a bodily feeling. This may in turn elicit the perception of an emotion. The mind's intention blends with the bodies' structure and organs, and further with the emotions that arise out of tension and relaxation.

By using the mind, feeling and body together, a fourth activity is initiated that results in healing or integration: intentional blending, relaxation of concepts and barriers, and openness of the mind/feeling/body to return to its natural integrated state.
