Nervous System Regulation

How Salt City Can

Support You

You feel most alive when our mind, body and psyche are connected. The effect of trauma—whether an accumulation of events or one sudden impact—flips the breaker switch between these parts to prevent overwhelm. This helps you survive. While critical in the short term, living in a disconnected fashion over time can deprive your life of its sense of meaning and depth. Salt City Bodyworks offers somatic approaches to heal trauma and support reconnection so you can transform from surviving to thriving.


The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is a somatic model created by Dr. Laurence Heller that facilitates healing from developmental trauma. NARM is not psychotherapy.

Somatic Support

Experience trauma healing with one-on-on-one somatic sessions. Salt City Bodyworks draws from a variety of body based traditions to offer you a customized approach to support you on your journey.

Somatic Experiencing®

Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a body-based approach developed by Dr. Peter Levine to enhance regulation in the nervous system. It is designed to support recovery from the effects of shock trauma. SE is not psychotherapy.

SE is a somatic modality that is best suited for healing the effects of shock trauma.

This approach to enhancing nervous system regulation releases “trapped” fight or flight energy through any number of somatic (or “body”) experiences: trembling, tears, flushing, inhaling/exhaling, chills, “goose flesh”, yawning, stretching, sweating, etc.

The vagus nerve registers the discharge and sends the message to the brain that the danger is over. The brain then resets the nervous system from “fight or flight” to “rest and digest”. The discharge has to actually occur to be picked up by the vagus nerve. This is why it is called Somatic Experiencing.

If you are living with the effects of shock trauma, Somatic Experiencing may be a fit for you. Zoom consultations are available to learn more.
