I was given Somatic Therapy Partner’s name by a friend who said she was experiencing rare and permanent shifts in her ability to self-regulate. During the table work I did with my therapist, it felt like I was dropping into depths of relaxation I could not reach on my own. Somehow I was able to let go of the need to monitor and manage. What I noticed shifting after sessions was my reactivity dropped, my ability to catch myself increased, my awareness of what was driving my reactions was not related to the person I interacted with, but some sense of knowing it was from my past. I felt like I “was in life, and life was in me.” I felt less separate from life and other people. The world slowed down, things seemed more rich and full of texture, and I felt more present.
I had done all sorts of therapies and healing ceremonies before meeting my therapist at Somatic Therapy Partners, but this work touched me differently. Very gentle, but deeply moving things from long ago, out of the way. I highly recommend table work for those who have struggled to make changes in their way of being in the world. My therapist is a caring, solid, and compassionate guide in this vulnerable territory, one who appreciates the struggles and humanness of what we have taken on along our path. I found her to be the most grounded, neutral, and non-judgmental therapist I have ever met.
