Somatic Institute Founder, Catalina Ureta, was born in Chile in the shadow of the magical Andes mountains. After years of spiritual study in Chile, she courageously moved to the United States in 1975 to continue her spiritual and healing work. A certified Kinesiologist and Cranial Sacral worker, Catalina has trained in multiple healing modalities including, the “PsychoNeuroEnergetics” (PNE) developed by Judith Johnson B.A. HE and “Body Electronics” therapy developed by Dr John Whitman Ray N.D., M.D. (M.A.).
Catalina is gifted with an intuitive ability to understand how energy becomes blocked in the human body and expertly incorporates techniques that release trapped emotions. She was one of the first to be certified in trauma resolution in Somatic Experiencing with leading expert Dr. Peter Levine. Her incredible knowledge of the body’s subtle energies and neurological system make her work both penetrating and powerful. For over 17 years Catalina has continued to refine Somatic Experiencing and is credited with developing The Holding Points Process and founding the Somatic Institute.
Catalina Ureta works from her office in Los Angeles, California, and offers one on one private sessions, including special sessions for children, and group consultations.
