What is Somatic Therapy?

I have mentioned the word “somatic” a couple of times and many of you are intrigued and excited  about what somatic therapy is all about.  Somatic implies movement and so somatic therapies incorporate some form of movement (dance, yoga, etc.) along with more traditional talk therapy.  Somatic experiencing helps people experience greater sense of self, a re connection to the body  and connection to others. Participants may find themselves able to understand the reason behind blockages, fatigue, lack of motivation or even self-sabotaging beliefs.

Somatic therapy is a body-oriented therapy.  It’s use as part of an integrated approach to the treatment of post traumatic stress is becoming more prevalent.  Trauma expert Bessel van derk Kolk has stated that somatic approaches may in fact be essential in trauma treatment.

Who can benefit?

  • Emotional and sexual abused victims
  • Trauma survivors
  • People with chronic pain
  • People with chronic fatigue
  • Individuals with body image issues
  • People who want to  love their bodies
  • Those who want to maximize full body-mind potential
  • Navigating relationships dynamics

Although in the therapy realm somatic therapies have been used for trauma resolution, still there are many avenues and reasons why these therapies are highly recommended to different populations with great success, even with teenagers.

My approach to somatic therapies is the integration of dance and dialogue or yoga  and dialogue to resolve issues that might be blocking us from expressing our full potential.

This approach also is a deep interwoven connection to the mind, this is not fitness, but a gateway to the mind. Our bodies store memories from previous events and it is my job to help you decode and harmonize your mind and body.

 

 

 

 

The Dance of a Goddess

I love to dance and tap into my feminine power. Dance to me is a purification process, a ecstatic trance that allows me to express my inner sexuality. Many ancient Greek and Roman cultures used to dance to honor their gods/goddesses and also honor themselves as pure expressions of the divine.

My style of dance can’t be labeled.  It’s not pure ballet, jazz or even belly dancing.  The closest I have been able to come to a good label is a tantric dance; a dance that harmonizes the breath with the root chakra.

There is no doubt that there were dancers in every culture.  Ancient art shows us that dance was prevalent all over the world.  For example, ancient sepulchers in Etruria have paintings of dancers on the walls (see below)  They must have considered dancing as one pleasures to be enjoyed a future state and that the dead were received with dancing and music in their new home. All over the world people have danced to the music of pipes, lyre, or castanets made of wood, steel, or brass, as is shown in the illustrations taken from the monuments.

Dance is an expression of love for yourself and humanity.

Keep dancing,

Activating your Sexual Energy

I invite you to be part of my journey of self-realization. I recently posted a video about “Activating Your Sexual Energy”.  This is a tantra approach to move your sexual energy to achieve overall bliss.

We move the pre-orgasmic force from the genital area into the heart chamber in order to achieve an overall orgasmic bliss and to expand your own consciousness by turning biological sex into blissful euphoria.

  • We need to set our intention to breath into the heart chamber.
  • Take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through the mouth.
  • Hold the perineum muscles while breathing
  • Release the breath and allow the tingles take over your body.

This is better done with my guidance a couple of times until you master it yourself and do it in the privacy of your room.
