Somatic work is thorough, progressive and satisfying. Somatic modalities utilize the body's role in understanding oneself, as well as its vital role the healing process itself. Somatics combines the realms of the body and the mind, which were never to be divided in the first place. Diagnostically speaking, working somatically means paying attention to the body. Heart rate, muscle tension, and the nature of one's breath are major indicators of what's happening in a person's emotional landscape. When you start tracking these things, you are organically placed on the path to increased health, because the body speaks in simple, clear terms. Somatic work takes you beyond the "why" into the "how." Some parts of our psyches are only accessible through the body, and paying attention to the body brings deeper understanding and change.
