The SE Trauma Institute is dedicated to resolving trauma worldwide by providing state-of-the-art professional training and public education in the Somatic Experiencing® method. SE is a powerful psychobiological method for addressing physical and emotional trauma, PTSD, overwhelm, and stress related conditions. Through our membership association we support the self-organization of a broad international network of passionate skillful SE practitioners who serve individuals in need and communities in crisis around the globe.


The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.

The Dr. Ida Rolf Institute® (DIRI), named after its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, is the only school in the United

States or worldwide, that trains Rolfers and Rolf Movement Practitioners. Certified Rolfers™ are the only professionals who can provide Rolfing Structural Integration to the public.

More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing® Structural Integration works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Our student clinics are reduced as much as 90% over the rates of Certified Rolfers enabling you to enjoy the legacy 10- or 13-series at discount.
