UPDATE 5/01/17: Dr. Bobbi Jones, DC, is currently on an extended leave from Chiropractic but is available for Somatic Trauma Therapy, see description below. Please book with her Associate Chiropractor at Zen Wellness, Dr. Dawn Runge. Thank you.
Dr. Jones provides emotional and mental support in facilitating a Somatic, or physical, release of emotions and stress using guided imagery and specific stress reducing, science-based, soothing touch techniques. This therapy was developed by Medical Doctors through the latest study Neuroscience and the effect of traumatic emotions on our brain and bodies. It calms and rewires the emotional brain activity, allowing one to process the emotional trauma without the need to do just talk therapy.
As a patient, you are asked to recall a certain traumatic event or emotion, without having to share details, that has repetitively interfered with your life. Together, Dr. Jones and you will locate where in your body that emotion is effecting your health and help determine ways to decrease triggers to that event or emotion. This is a highly successful treatment for PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Self-Destructive Behaviors, Pregnancy Anxiety, Post Partum Depression, and past Childhood Traumas.
Each Somatic Session lasts between 45-60 minutes, and can be highly effective when talk therapy is either an intimidating option or has no longer provided sufficient recovery.
Please email Dr. Jones for more information about her Somatic Therapy Sessions at email@example.com
Dr. Jones was Massage Therapist for over 20 years, an Advanced Yoga Instructor and a Meditation Leader. She graduated in 1997 from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology, with emphasis in Biochemistry & Psychology. In 2001, she received her Doctorate from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic at Southern California University Health Sciences in Whittier, where she double majored in Chiropractic and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
