There is growing scientific evidence that a deep relationship exists between traumatic stress and physical health. For over thirty years, Dr. Peter Levine, has studied and researched therapies to address the physiology and the treatment of trauma. In his book Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and his latest book In An Unspoken Voice, Dr. Levine explains how using a sensation based approach can heal trauma.
It is a careful, physiology based practice that, unlike cathartic therapies, is a slow step-by-step process, peaceful and non-triggering. The process includes some talking, though much more focus is set upon sensations, as the Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) helps guide you to a new reparative experience.
