Can A Bad Trip Turn Into A Healing Experience?
There is research suggesting that somatic practices are helpful when experiencing a bad trip and even transforming it into a healing experience. Somatic practices involve paying attention to bodily sensations and movements, and using them as a way to resolve emotions and disturbing sensations, that are often related to Anxiety or Depression.
I facilitate therapy work with psychedelics and incorporate somatic practices into my work with clients who are experiencing difficult psychedelic experiences. By helping clients focus on their body sensations and movement patterns, they are able to help them release tension, tightness and anxiety, and access deeper emotions and insights. This process turns a difficult experience into a healing one, as the client is able to process and integrate difficult emotions or traumas that they were previously unable to access.
It is worth noting, however, that working with difficult psychedelic experiences can be complex and requires specialized training and experience. It is important to work with a therapist who has expertise in this area and who can provide appropriate support and guidance throughout the process.
Because somatic practices addresses issues from the root of these discomforts, the resolution of trauma is profound and deep. Talking is a function of cognition not of the body. That is the main reason why talk therapy doesn't resolve emotional issues and specifically trauma. Talk therapy is great for understanding what has happened, however emotions and sensations are the domain of the body. Call me to schedule a somatic psychedelic session. I look forward to meeting with you!
