We do not experience trauma with the mind only. The entire body and its systems are disrupted. Somatic experiencing can be one of the most effective tools we have in dealing with trauma, because it engages the body as well as the mind.

This is well-illustrated in this video, which shows practitioner Ale Duarte visiting Japan after the tsunami. He uses somatic experiencing to help the disaster victims onto the path of healing from their trauma.

Be well.
