Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a style of therapy that is aimed at the treatment of PTSD. This technique uses "physical modification" (massage and body movement) at the "sensorimotor" level (the level at which the body and emotions connect). This approach postulates that traumatic memories are stored in the muscles and nerves and these memories can be treated and released through releasing the stored tension.
