Somatic therapy uses the body and body awareness to help process emotions and trauma. In my practice, is it not employed as the sole focus of the session, but is instead used in just the right moment or seamlessly woven into the work that is being completed, be it through EMDR, DBT, or talking and exploration of someone's situation. In this manner, it can facilitate or contribute to recovery.
Somatic therapy is a bit different than talk therapy, and it can feel strange to check in with your body. However, being in touch with your body sensations can be key to healing.
