Somatic practice is a form of body-centred therapy that looks at the connection of both the mind and the body when healing from a life altering experience.
The transplant process requires a lot of physical, emotional and mental processing. Many of us are left with lingering alterations in our nervous system which can affect our moods, our ability to handle stress, sleep issues and more – it is a little different for everyone.
Through somatic practices, you will learn to safely explore the landscape of your body, understand your sensations, and rebuild your sense of trust and friendship with your body again. The approach is gentle, non-invasive and self-regulating. It involves building awareness through sensation, movement, breath, self-touch and sound.
During this series, you will start to regain a deeper sense of being ‘back in your body’, have a greater feeling of self-empowerment, mental wellness and feel more at ease in your everyday life.
