One of the most common questions I get is, “What is Core Energetics?”
The simplest answer is, Core Energetics is a somatic therapeutic modality. In simple terms, Core Energetics is a type of body-based psychotherapy.
It’s very similar to traditional talk therapy in some ways. The Core Energetics therapist and client sit down and talk about what’s going on in the client’s life.
But the big difference between talk therapy and Core comes down to one belief:
Most of the “work” that needs to be done to find freedom is to release old energetic patterns stored in the body.
Traditional talk therapy mostly works with the brain.
But the trouble is, your brain is designed to keep you alive.
Your brain will alter, manipulate, or reconfigure any situation or story that’s happened to you so it doesn’t appear as scary as it actually was… or to make it appear even scarier.
Think about soldiers coming back from war, people who have been physically violated, or car crash survivors.
Very often, people who experienced a significant traumatic event don’t remember what happened.
That’s a function of your brain. Your brain decides that the story or the situation was so dangerous that it’s safer to shut the story down and not remember it.
But when the brain shuts down the story? You end up feeling like something isn’t right in your system. Something feels wrong–almost like you were brainwashed–but you can’t figure out what’s wrong because you can’t fully remember.
That’s the problem with traditional talk therapy and why many people end up retraumatizing themselves through talk therapy. I’ll share more on this topic in another blog.
What does Core Energetics Therapy offer that talk therapy doesn’t?
For now, let’s focus on what Core Energetics offers that talk therapy doesn’t. To clarify that, let’s go back to what happens after you experience a traumatic event.
Essentially, your brain rewires the story of the traumatic event. But that’s only one half of what happens.
The other half is physical. It’s your body.
During the traumatic event, your body stores the experience as an energetic imprint. It’s an imprint that your brain can’t change.
So if you feel like there’s something “off” that you can’t quite put your finger on?
Chances are there’s an energetic imprint inside your body of a past traumatic experience… and once you work with that energy? You’ll begin to feel calm, confident, and empowered once again.
And that’s the best part of Core Energetics. Because in Core Energetics therapy (unlike traditional talk therapy), you don’t necessarily need the story. The actual event doesn’t have to be spoken of for you to work.
All you need is a willingness to feel and release the energy in your body.
So, what is Core Energetics?
Core Energetics is a somatic psychotherapy practice that works with the energetic imprints leftover in your body from past experiences.
We work with these energetic imprints to clear the “physical memory” of the event from your body and life.
