The theory behind somatic therapy is that the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are all related and connected to each other. As a result, the stress of past emotional and traumatic events affects the central nervous system and can cause changes in the body and even in body language. Developing awareness of somatic therapy helps you to release the tension, anger, frustration and other emotions that remain in your body from these past negative experiences and allow you to engage more fully in life.
