At Soma Clinic we often see conditions that contain a psycho-emotional element. That is; there has been a previous life experience that is contributing to a complex condition that effects multiple layers: physiology (the body), psychology (the mind) and relational (interpersonal/relationship)
While every case has a unique presentation and a personal story behind it, two things we find in common with all cases are:
1. nervous system dysregulation
2. Reactive patterns (either physical symptoms or emotional dysregulation)
Ultimately there is an internal sense of danger that is causing this disruption.
In order to work with this felt sense of danger/‘something is wrong’, we recommend a blend of verbal and somatic processing as well as down-regulating gentle touch work. The goal is to understand and discharge the reactive patterns and rerun to a state of internal safety regulation across all layers.
