Making Lasting Changes: BodyTalk and Somatic Experiencing

January 23, 2018 | By More

As the New Year comes upon us, we often feel the desire to implement new and improved ways of feeling, thinking, being and/or looking in our bodies and minds. It is challenging to mentally affirm these new ways of being if our energetic, physical and emotional bodies are struggling to work alongside our mind’s expectations. For example, if we aren’t digesting well or therefore thinking clearly; if we have chronic joint, back pain or headaches that limit our activity; if we feel anxious and/or depressed often; if we’re not sleeping well and have little energy; or if we have had various traumas that may show up as any of the above symptoms.

Using our minds to mentally will our bodies into action may occasionally be helpful, yet allowing our body to reset via our 3 brains (head, heart and gut), enables it to heal itself and for changes to be harmonious and sustainable.

BodyTalk energy therapy and Somatic Experiencing (trauma release) therapy, both help the body and mind to integrate energy from past stresses and traumas, which often becomes stuck within the body’s various parts and systems, causing a host of symptoms and eventually disease. Both of these modalities enable emotions, memories, stuck energy to be discharged in order to free up our immune, digestive, endocrine, nervous, somatic, musculoskeletal, etc. systems, so that we can feel increased energy, our innate aliveness, as well as the freedom to choose our responses to life once more.

Jaya Hollohan has uncovered past traumas and stuck energies held in my body for decades and helped them to move out and shift so incredibly quickly. Multiple physical issues that I believed to be chronic and un-fixable have been painlessly cured. I highly recommend experiencing Jaya’s healing sessions. She has helped me to find a version of myself that I didn’t even know existed!
