Sometimes we just need a hand, someone who if only for a moment, can see more clearly than we can.
As a somatic therapist, I often ask, “Where do you feel that…?” I believe our body knows before our brain does, in fact our brain sometimes tries to talk our body out of what it knows and this is where the trouble starts. What most people don’t know is that we are equipped with the ability to know what we need, yet we often override these internal messages with reason and defensiveness. In therapy, we give voice to the body and we work to quiet the brain and see what happens…tiny miracles!
