What to expect
Somatic sessions for family are a unique and transformative experience that can help families deepen their connections with one another and enhance their overall well-being.
We structure each session into four parts, beginning with a playful and engaging introduction (which could be anything from a game to some gentle self-massage), followed by guided play. Then we move into breathwork before wrapping up with a soothing somatic meditation to leave you feeling calm and centered.
As our session comes to a close, we'll provide you with some helpful guidelines for using drawing as a way to continue integrating your experience on your own time after our session is over.
We will share some written notes after the session.
Polyvagal theory is a theory in neuroscience that helps explain how the nervous system responds to stress and regulates bodily functions.
Imagine you're a cartoon character and your body has a secret control panel with three buttons: one for 'chill out', one for 'fight or flight', and one for 'play dead'. Depending on what's going on around you, your body decides which button to push to keep you safe and sound.
Polyvagal theory suggests that we can regulate our nervous system through practices like breathing exercises, meditation, and movement. By practicing these techniques, we can improve our ability to self-regulate and manage our emotions and physiological responses.
