Healing Trauma with Conscious Movement
Conscious Movement is an enigma. It pulls from germanic movements in psychoanalysis incorporating modern classical dance and eastern contemplative movement studies like yoga, meditation and recent literature in dance movement therapy/ somatic experiencing.
Conscious movement is a psychosocial intervention that incorporates the stress-reduction benefits of group processing and dance movement.
The purpose of the conscious movement is to increase self-guided movements to further cognitive functioning and emotional expression. As a mind/body integrated form of wellness, conscious movement combines the benefits of dance, catharsis, social support and creative activity in a single intervention approach.The facilitative group dynamics of conscious movement allows individuals to conceptualize their experiences through deep psychosomatic connection to their bodies, re-building self-confidence and coping with feelings related to stress.Allowing individuals to express the trauma they’ve experienced through movement and integrated forms of psychotherapy will help with the integration of the autonomic nervous system and will increase an individual’s ability to tolerate intense stimuli they associate with the event.
What Is Somatic Therapy?
Somatic therapy is an integral process to healing our autonomic nervous system and integrating traumatic experiences through attuning to the archaic intelligence of the bodies awareness.
How does it work?
Why the mind body connection?
The mind body connection is the link between a person’s thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors and their physical health. It is an important part of understanding the body as an integral system, which reflects holistic medicine a healthcare philosophy which seeks to treat the whole person and prevent chronic conditions.
Mind-body therapies like somatic therapy help to increase positive feelings connected to our thought, cognition and mood through activating physical responses that calm the autonomic nervous system and decrease oxidative stress in the body.
The Science Behind the Mind Body Connection | Somatic Therapy
Scientific studies are constantly revealing the connection between how our mind and biological systems are impacted by one another. Once thought as fringe science, scientific directors like Dr. Peter Levine. and David Spiegel, Director of Psychosocial Research at Stanford University, have made waves in integrating somatic experiencing, mindfulness and movement as a grounding tomechanisms to increase the bodies tolerance for uncomforatble and distressing physical sensations that accompany mental health disorders.
