SomaShift: Embodied Evolution- Somatic Work for Chronic Illness

Your chronic health issues may be signaling that your body is persistently stuck in survival mode, a condition deeply rooted in the nervous system's response to past experiences. Recognizing this can be a crucial step towards achieving a healthier, more balanced life.

Survival mode in the nervous system manifests through various physical and mental symptoms.

Physical signs include neck and back pain, tension in the limbs, and temperature dysregulation. Mentally and emotionally, you might experience heightened anxiety, hyper-vigilance, a feeling of being both wired and fatigued, racing thoughts, irritability, anger, and tendencies towards perfectionism, overachieving, and overexertion.

Conversely, survival mode can also lead to feeling detached, numb, or spacey, dissociation, depressive states, feelings of hopelessness, and pervasive negative thoughts such as "I'll never heal" or "I'm alone." This can result in procrastination, social withdrawal, and avoidance due to overwhelming emotions.

In this state, critical bodily systems like the immune, endocrine, lymphatic, digestive, and cardiovascular systems don't function optimally, contributing to chronic health conditions.

Addressing these issues at a surface level can provide temporary relief, but for deep, lasting change, it's essential to get to the root cause. Somatic work and nervous system regulation play a pivotal role in this process. These methods focus on exiting survival mode by reestablishing a sense of bodily safety and turning off the survival response.

Incorporating practices that regulate the nervous system and engage in somatic work is not just beneficial but vital for a healthy life. They go beyond treating symptoms, targeting the underlying issues that contribute to your body's prolonged state of alert. This approach, which includes therapies like Polyvagal therapy, fosters deep shifts and long-lasting changes, moving you towards a more balanced and fulfilling state of well-being.
