Current research with leading experts such as psychotherapist Peter Levine and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk have written books on how trauma gets stored in the physical body. The nervous system holds onto a state of dysregulation, affecting cognition, behaviors, and mood. Somatic exercises serve to help the body experience a regulated nervous system which in turn serve to heal the automatic trauma responses that have been held onto by the body.
