The Somatic Activated Healing (SAH) MethodTM, created by Sah D’Simone, is a revolutionary wellness practice combining the healing modalities of somatic movement, rhythmic breath, positive
affirmations, and dynamic meditation. Trauma is a fact of life, and healing from it is our responsibility. But, trauma isn’t about what happened to you. It’s about the feelings lingering within you as a result of your traumas, no matter how large or small.
Big feelings, when left unprocessed in the body, lead to big stories in the mind. This cycle keeps us attached to past experiences, unable to release and recover, and inhibits our ability to be present and create a meaningful life. It keeps us stuck in suffering.
After a traumatic or painful experience, many of us become masters of escaping the present moment (where our bodies live) — so fearful of feeling that we’ll do anything to distract from it. We disassociate, multitask, or numb ourselves to try and escape from unpleasant feelings.
When unprocessed emotional baggage builds up in our bodies, we become stuck in survival mode, which can manifest in us in a variety of ways, including: confusion, paranoia, outbursts, mysterious physical pains, gut issues, a sense of nothing ever being enough, feeling broken, triggered by peace, fearful about the future, worried about the past, addictive behaviors, cravings, negativity bias, and the list goes on...
All of our personal chaos stems from our inability to be with uncomfortable feelings in the body. And our chaos bleeds into the world around us, spreading like a contagion. Our painful memories have hardwired feelings attached to them. Traditional therapeutic healing methods use a top-down approach, in which the mind is the entry point to resolve our past and the feelings associated with it. However, this often requires mentally revisiting traumatic or painful experiences.
The SAH MethodTM utilizes a bottom-up approach, in which the body is the entry point for healing. It addresses the emotional baggage in our bodies, rather than the specific thoughts or memories connected to them in our minds. Through the SAH MethodTM, you’ll master the art of BEING IN YOUR BODY. True healing is a miracle that ONLY happens when we are embodied.
