Somatic experiencing is a method that renegotiates the stress response in the body through sensations, feelings, images, behaviors and meaning. In this approach acute and chronic stress and trauma reactions are understood to be aspects of development and relational experiences throughout the life span, from infancy, through adulthood. The methods also address other sources of acute and chronic stress, such as medical procedures, falls, accidents, assaults, natural disasters, terrorism from the point of view of the felt sense of unworked experience in the body. Recent theories and research on brain-body physiology and memory mechanisms have expanded our understanding of the possibilities of somatic therapy processes in the resolution of conditioned reflexes of trauma.
