Dr. Robert LoPresti understands the importance of talk therapy and how it can be useful. But he believes that when dealing with trauma, stress and a kind of emotional defense, you cannot simply stop there. It is important to tap into what the body is experiencing when dealing with trauma. What does the body remember and how is it contributing to your overall outlook on life and living?
Dr. Robert LoPresti employs the principals of somatic experiencing and body awareness in order to open a world of information and sensing that has since been neglected.
To help you better understand – most of us, primarily when dealing with pain, can only be aware of the experience in a very one dimensional and fragmented form. Rather than selectively viewing our experience we remember it in bits and pieces. Although we may not realize it, we naturally impose past heartaches, memories and outcomes on our current challenges, circumstances and relationships. By tapping into somatic experiencing and body awareness, a world of insight and knowledge can open up that was once previously neglected. Dr. LoPresti uses your body language, body stimulus and posture as communicative tools in order to access powerful emotions and conflicts that may have been suppressed for some time.
