What is Somatic Healing?

Our Body is intelligent and has incredible in-built healing resources. Given the right conditions, it has the power to heal itself from all sorts of discomforts, ailments and diseases.
Somatic Healing is a tool allowing us to consciously participate in and enhance this extraordinary healing power, in a simple relaxed hypnotic state. The sophisticated yet simple techniques of Somatic Healing have been developed by the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis. They use visualization, imagination and hypnotic movements to help create the best healing conditions.

Not only is a Somatic Healing session a moment of deep relaxation, it is also a wonderful way to become the artisan of one's health and well-being.

Why take a Somatic Healing training?

Learn fast, powerful and easy techniques to help your family members, friends and clients activate their own internal healing process and obtain rapid improvement of their condition.

Practically every time a person experiences some kind of suffering, Somatic Healing can bring at least some significant relief. Often, results are far greater and it is not uncommon that a person having suffered for many years obtains immediate and lasting improvement.

Somatic Healing Techniques

General Technique
You will learn induction techniques to bring your clients to a light hypnotic trance and help them visualize themselves healthy, happy and healed. Once deeply relaxed they are encouraged to communicate with the affected body part and release the emotions associated with the pain, discomfort or disease. You will apply several visualization techniques to facilitate this process.
The Golden Sun
This method allows the therapist to use his/her imagination and body to channel healing energies to the person in pain. Not only is it useful during a Somatic Healing session, it can also be used in numerous circumstances where positive energy can make a difference.

Hypnotic movement
Body Intelligence at work !
Once your client has reached a peaceful state of relaxation often referred as light hypnotic trance, you will use different techniques to allow the body to move in whichever way it wants to. These movements range from invisible micro-movements to more visible ones. As the process goes on, pain and emotions stored in the body are progressively released. You will learn specific suggestion techniques corresponding to the presenting problems such as accident injuries, work or stress related pain, arthritis or fibromyalgia.

Color Healing
Powerful visualization techniques allowing the subject to "see" his healing process using different colors and shapes.

The Inner Healer
The Inner Healer is a powerful resource available at all time to help us in our healing process. Clients are encouraged to meet and visualize their Inner Healer working on their body. As well as several different ways to work with the Inner Healer, you will learn how to help your client establish a lasting healing relationship with him/her. This powerful archetype can even give suggestions regarding one's healing process, way of life, diet or exercise scheme.
