How to use
How to Use the Somatic Care Deck for Chronic Pain
Why it works
Also known as somatic experiencing, somatic therapy incorporates the mind, body, and spirit into therapeutic healing work. Somatic therapy aims to treat the effects of PTSD and other mental and emotional health issues through the connection of mind and body, using a body-centric approach.
Unlike standard mental health therapy types like CBT that focus prominently on the mind, somatic therapy incorporates body-oriented modalities such as dance, breathwork, mind-body activities, and mindfulness to support people through their healing journeys.
Release tension stored in the body
This therapy aims to help release how a physical body holds on to stress, tension, pain and trauma, rather than only resolving problems verbally.
