Michele Solloway, PhD. The Power of Somatic Experiencing
Today my guest is the inspiring Michele Solloway, PhD.
Michele is a nationally certified healing arts practitioner with training in somatic therapy, polarity and craniosacral therapies, and energy medicine. She is on the board of directors for the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute, an organization founded by Dr. Peter Levine and dedicated to the development, training and dissemination of somatic therapy.
First though, a giant thank-you to my sponsor today, Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute (SETI)!
Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.
SE was founded by Dr. Peter Levine, author of the bestseller Waking the Tiger, who developed Somatic Experiencing based on explorations of how animals deal with threat, nervous system overwhelm, and traumatic experiences on a daily basis.
