About Somatic Experiencing
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a gentle therapy which involves noticing the senses and sensations throughout the whole body. It helps us gain a clear understanding of unhelpful, maladapted survival strategies or blockages trapped in the body, and how to let them move through us in a safe and supportive way. Humans and animals in their natural environment all have an innate natural gut reaction and a physical ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response. SE works with these natural processes.
Trauma is something we all experience, whether we are aware of it or not. When the body becomes overwhelmed our natural responses can be interrupted. This incompleteness presents as a multitude of physical and emotional experiences. SE fosters a gentle and safe way of clearing ‘stuckness’ and distress caused by trauma or stress, including PTSD.
SE is a neurophysiological approach to healing trauma, which works directly with the autonomic nervous system. Its aim is to discharge energy that has been encoded at a cellular level in traumatic events, causing the nervous system to become dysregulated and fixed. The SE practitioner uses specific interventions with the body supporting to release what is unfinished. The process of discharge leaves the body feeling resilient, empowered and present”.
Aggy is available every Friday from 10am to 5pm
- Initial Consult – $100

Marnie – Energy Healing
Marnie has been practicing as an energy healer for 18 years working in Australia, India and the United States.
She has recently returned to Australia from India and is elated to be joining the Salt & Soul team!
Marnie’s practice combines two modalities—Body Psychotherapy and Vedic Healing. What this means is that she combines psychotherapy (counselling) with high quality energy healing. She understands the innate relationship between a person’s psychology, their energy and how this is somaticized in the physical body to impact mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.
The Body psychotherapy she practices is a transpersonal energy healing modality that was derived from psychoanalytic practice, exploring wellness via the mind-body-spirit connection. The combination of which helps clients to overcome anxiety, depression, stress, physical ailments, emotional pain and trauma while promoting self-awareness, growth, psychological organisation, vitality and spiritual awakening. The Vedic Energy Healing she does belongs to the greater system of Ayurveda, in particular she studied energy healing of Shaktism of the Shri Vidya tradition. This is a holistic system that explores the balance and polarity of prana and the 5 elements in the energy field and body—the kundalini system, the nadis (small energy centres), the 5 inner chakras, the meridians and male and female energy of a client to promote wellbeing.
Marnie is a transpersonal and holistic practitioner who is an expert in energy healing and energy anatomy. Marnie trained for 5 years to become a body psychotherapist in Australia at the Institute of Energy Science where she also taught healing for 10 years and trained for another three years in India to learn Vedic healing. Marnie has also completed trainings at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Miami, Florida and the Center for Intentional Living in New York. Marnie specialises in working with people who have experienced trauma (ptsd and emotional pain) and people who want to release old patterns and pain. So if you are feeling stuck and want your energy to shift Marnie can help.
Marnie works with all areas of the energy field, chakras, aura, Hara, merkabah, the core star, kundalini, meridians, the 5 inner chakras etc. and also with the fright, flight, freeze and fawn responses, the limbic system and reptilian brain, the nervous system including the vagus nerve. She does all types of energy healing work including astral, soul retrieval, shamanic work, chakras anything, you name it, if it’s energy and healing she does it. Marnie works with a person’s individual energy and caters each healing to what is needed to help bring a person’s energy back into balance. Sessions typically include 25mins of psychotherapy and 30mins of hands on healing allowing 5 mins to integrate the work. Having a session with Marnie is deeply relaxing and can be transformational too, whatever a client is ready for will transpire.
As a healer, Marnie holds a heart space for her clients that is safe with no judgement and is confidential. Above all else, she values kindness and tolerance, like the clients she works with daily, she is on a spiritual journey of self-discovery and creative mastery. Marnie believes whole-heartedly that creativity, energy and self-exploration can be used to heal, transform and build resilience. Marnie knows personally that the awareness that is gained from healing leads to the manifestation of our deepest potential in this earth, regardless of any negative life experiences we might have had.
