Somatics

February 4, 2019

In my healing journey I have recently started to work with a healer in the field of bodytalk and somatics.

Somatics is a field within bodywork and movement studies which emphasizes internal physical perception and experience. The term is used in movement therapy to signify approaches based on the soma, or “the body as perceived from within. This experience has been difficult. The body has trapped unreleased emotions and pain that I have lived with for years. Now to be given back the opportunity to sit with it and become aware of the feelings deep within the tissue is allowing me to be free of this pain. The work is hard but as the pain leaves my body it also leaves my mind. This creates space and peace within my vibration. The work is worth it. If we keep showing up and doing the work we will make healing happen just in those around us. We heal ourselves and we begin to heal the world.
