Somatic Modeling has to do with the organization of our physiology and "body language." Somatic Modeling focuses more on the form and deeper organization of body language than it does on its content. One of the primary objectives of Somatic Modeling is to mobilize and utilize the "wisdom of the body." A fundamental principle of Somatic Modeling is that there is information and wisdom in the body and knowledge in "the muscle." It is a way to access and take advantage of the full capacity of "the brain in our body." This session will explore how to apply Somatic Modeling as a key process for gathering information and finding resources in a therapy session.
