What is a somatic method?

A way of approaching counseling and healing that helps people connect to and understand their bodies in a new way. The word ‘somatic’ comes from the Greek word for ‘body’ and is often used to describe treatments that focus on physical or emotional healing through the use of touch, movement, breathing, dance, and other forms of physical awareness.

Somatic methods are often used to help patients cope with chronic pain, stress disorders, addiction and recovery, and more.
