At Recovery at the Crossroads, we understand the profound impact trauma can have on both the mind and body. Our holistic approach to trauma treatment is rooted in trauma-informed care, which integrates an understanding of trauma symptoms and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) into all aspects of service delivery. By addressing the complexities of traumatic experiences, we aim to create a healing environment that nurtures overall well-being.

Understanding Somatic Therapy

Somatic therapy, a cornerstone of our approach, is designed to gently peel back the layers of trauma by focusing on the interconnectedness of the body and mind. Unlike traditional talk therapy, somatic therapy trauma treatment delves into the physical manifestations of trauma. By fostering body awareness and somatic experiencing, we help clients tune into their bodily sensations, uncovering and releasing stored emotional and physical stress.

The Benefits of Meditation in Trauma Treatment

Meditation plays a crucial role in our treatment programs, offering a range of benefits for those healing from trauma. Regular meditation enhances mental health, boosts the mind-body connection, and supports nervous system regulation. For individuals dealing with traumatic stress, meditation provides a powerful tool for developing self-regulation skills and fostering a sense of inner calm.

The Role of Fascia in Somatic Healing

The fascia, a web-like connective tissue, plays a significant role in somatic healing. Emotional and physical trauma can become “stuck” in the fascia, leading to chronic pain and tension. Our somatic therapy approaches target the fascia, using essential methods like myofascial release to alleviate discomfort and facilitate the release of trapped emotions.

Yoga as a Somatic Treatment

Yoga is an integral part of our somatic treatment offerings. By combining physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation, yoga provides a holistic method for addressing both physical and emotional aspects of trauma. Our trauma-informed yoga practices are tailored to meet each client’s unique needs, ensuring a safe and supportive environment for healing and growth.

Somatic Therapy Through Massage and Breathwork

Our somatic therapy, including massage and breathwork, fosters body awareness and somatic experiencing, helping clients tune into their bodily sensations to uncover and release stored stress, soothe the nervous system, and promote relaxation.

Somatic Therapies: A Diverse Spectrum of Healing

Somatic therapies encompass a wide range of techniques aimed at healing trauma by focusing on the body’s wisdom. Each somatic treatment offers unique experiential tools that cater to different aspects of trauma recovery, addressing physical symptoms, reducing muscle tension, and promoting somatic awareness. From movement-based therapies to tactile interventions, these diverse therapies are designed to help individuals release emotional blockages and find a path to healing.

The Transformative Power of Somatic Experiencing

Somatic experiencing, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, is a powerful approach to healing traumatic stress stored in the body. Our skilled somatic practitioners guide clients through gently releasing this stress, promoting a relaxation response and moving towards a state of balance and well-being.
