Energy and the Body in Trauma and PTSD
In this 6-minute video, Peter Levine (the creator of Somatic Experiencing) explains how trauma traps an enormous amount of energy in the body, energy caused by an overwhelming event that remains in the nervous system long after the event has passed.
The Somatic Experiencing approach to trauma and PTSD differs from other forms of treatment that involve “talk” therapy and/or the reliving of the event. SE deals more with the whole body, its nervous system, and the energy they still hold from the trauma that needs to be integrated .
That difference is what makes Somatic Experiencing the most effective, gentle treatment for all types of traumas–from a simple fall to surviving an explosion, from a visit to the dentist to a car accident, from the trauma of neglect as a baby to full-blown PTSD. Somatic Experiencing can change the physical and emotional damage caused by all types of traumas and bring one back to leading a rich, joy-filled life.
