Trauma isn't a Life Sentence
The good news, however, is that trauma does not have to be a life sentence. Contrary to
popular belief, trauma can be healed and in many cases, prevented. Trauma is less of a
disease than a state of "dis-ease."
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a gentle, innovative and integrative body oriented approach
which helps access and unlock our inherent ability to self regulate and restore vibrancy
after stress and threat. With appropriate guidance into the body’s instinctive "felt sense,"
SE employs awareness of body sensations to help people "renegotiate" and heal their
traumas rather than relive them. By completing the innate responses that were frozen during
their state of overwhelm, human animals can "thaw," learning to naturally move through
trauma and heal. As a result, people frequently experience a dramatic reduction in or
dissappearance of their traumatic symptoms.
Sandra Daitch has been practicing Somatic Experiencing since 1998. She is available in
Arlington, Ma, for private sessions, and can also provide sessions by phone, FaceTime,
Skype, or Google Hangout. Sandra can provide required sessions for certification of
Somatic Experiencing students. As a Licensed Massage Therapist, Sandra can use touch
to support containment and to facilitate certain kinds of shifts that can happen more easily
with touch support.
