Somatic Therapy for Addiction in New York

Addiction is a complex condition which results from multiple causes and is often linked to deep emotional and physical trauma. Nicolai Grosell’s practice provides specialized addiction therapy that uses somatic therapy to address these underlying issues, thereby facilitating profound and long-lasting recovery.

What is Somatic Therapy?

Rather than focusing on mental and emotional aspects of substance use disorders like conventional talking therapies, somatic therapy is mindful of the fact that trauma and stress are usually stored in the body. It does this by engaging one’s physical sensations and experiences, thus freeing the emotions pent up within them leading to cure such as wholeness.

How Does Somatic Therapy Help with Addiction Recovery?

Releasing Trapped Trauma

Several people struggling with addiction have suffered past traumas. These traumatic events might be contained within the body resulting into problems including chronic pain, stiffness or other somatic symptoms. By relieving these trapped traumas, a person can experience relief from both physical pain as well as emotional pain.

Strengthening Mind-Body Connection

Addiction often leads people to lose touch with their bodies. This connection gets stronger with somatic therapy by helping individuals to feel their senses through bodily movements or even through meditation. Better self-regulation can result enhancing one’s understanding of their own bodily state thus reducing reliance on substances for comfort.

Lowering Stress and Anxiety Levels

Somatic therapy utilizes techniques like deep breathing, mindfulness as well as gentle exercises to provoke relaxation thereby easing anxiety among clients. Lowering stress levels greatly decreases cravings along with chances of relapse.

Developing Resilience

To become resilient against triggers plus stressors requires working through physical sensations coupled with formation of new ways for coping up while still ensuring sobriety lasts for long stretches at once.
