Research on Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, leverages innate regulatory mechanisms observed in animals to address trauma rooted in the nervous system, not the event. Trauma freezes a devastating moment in time, becoming an internal straitjacket that hinders personal growth and disrupts connections with self, others, nature, and spirit. While humans share regulatory systems with animals, our neo-cortical inhibition often overrides them, manifesting in various symptoms. These symptoms include depression, irritability, concentration loss, insomnia, emotional overwhelm, hopelessness, shame, memory issues, nightmares, hypervigilance, chronic pain, substance abuse, and more. Somatic Experiencing facilitates the release of frozen survival energies, allowing individuals to unfreeze from fear and regain connection with their authentic selves, fostering healing and personal growth.

What We Offer

 At OK Clinical Therapy Group, we employ Somatic Experiencing, a body-based approach leveraging natural regulatory mechanisms for trauma recovery. Unlike traditional talk therapy, it prioritizes the body's innate ability to restore equilibrium. In sessions, clients, and clinicians create safe spaces to explore trauma gradually, ensuring a regulated experience. This non-pathologizing method acknowledges the body's adaptive responses, offering compassionate attention for healing. By addressing the nervous system's activation and restoring regulation, clients reshape their self-perception and relationship with the world.
