Trauma and stress can rob you of feelings of safety.

Sometimes there was no visible “trauma,” yet you still feel chaotic, stuck, and in pain.

 Rooted Bliss Intuitive Somatic Healing helps you come home to your body.

It’s your innate human right to feel the joy and freedom of being alive.

What is Rooted Bliss?

Rooted Bliss combines rootedness — a sense of safety and grounding — with bliss, an indescribable sense of well-being.

When you’re feeling beaten down, there is nothing like a loving other who can listen without judgment. I offer gentle supportive touch and embodied inquiry to help you release the tight grip of addictions, stress, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.

Find your safe harbor in the storms of life. I’ll guide you to it – it already lives inside you.

Kate Hartman, C-IAYT, SEP

It is my passion to help others recover from trauma and get their life back. I believe that healing is a human right, and that you – yes, you – can not only recover, but become truly resilient. My job is to advocate for your body and your nervous system to release the constrictions that stress and trauma leave behind so that you can have access to the fullness of your own vitality, creativity, and joy. How do I know? I’ve been there. Want to know more? Read my story.

I offer in-person work in Evansville, Indiana and distance work via Skype/Zoom.

If what I offer isn’t right for you, I have a network of various practitioners I refer to, so that you can find the healing you deserve.

Services Offered:

Every session starts from the viewpoint that you already have wholeness inside you. No human is too far gone to find resilience and thrive. Your symptoms, rather than being pathological, contain the roots of healing. You CAN begin anew.

Carol B.

It was a beautiful session, and really insightful. I felt comfortable opening up. It really helped me to embrace my younger self and have compassion for her. Kate, I hope you never have any doubt how wonderful you are at what you do!

Cheri H.

This session was one of the deepest experiences [I have had] regarding barriers emotionally holding me back from being more at peace and loving myself. It helped me sense what was hindering me emotionally. It was excellent, as usual. Thank you, Kate!

Mike F.

I appreciate Kate’s warm welcome. I am surprised how open I was about my feelings after only a few minutes with Kate. I feel positive and more relaxed, and the session made me feel it’s okay to have my thoughts – good or bad – and I feel my mind is free of the burden of trying only to have good thoughts.

Lorraine M.

Kate really helped me to discover where different tension points were that my body held. She also helped me to understand the emotional attachments and reactions I have to those different tension points. I feel more open in my throat, chest, and shoulders; those were areas I needed to expand. Kate is really good at getting at the problems – really helpful!

Leah C.

Kate has a wonderful and calming presence. It is a very comfortable and safe practice, very relaxing and grounding. I always feel connected to my body afterwards.

Ben R.

I feel that this was a much-needed reset. I was able to surrender for a time in order to let subconscious & spirit come forward. You made this a very comforting experience.

Cassandra H.

Kate has a calm and peaceful demeanor, which made me feel very relaxed and safe.

George B.

I enjoy the safe space and the permission to be fully aware of myself, my comfort and my thoughts. Kate encourages me and helps me vocalize and realize things I wouldn’t otherwise even be aware of or acknowledge. At the end, we gather up everything and connect points, helping me see it in a cleaner fashion.

Juliana C.

Kate really helped me tap into an unhealed part of myself. The session helped me to become aware of the tension in my body, and helped to let go of the tension. This was my first session, and it exceeded my expectations. I received physical relief as well as mental relief.

Jessica H.

Excellent! Really beyond what I thought it might be. Compassionate and caring therapy. I got insight into a long standing issue and a different way of looking at it. Kate, you’re obviously on the right path with this work!

Melissa K.

I feel more connected to my body, with less build-up in certain areas. Kate does a wonderful job asking good questions which lead me to truth and healing. It’s a healing experience.

Melissa D.

I really appreciate Kate’s ability to listen and see what’s going on, and having really good instincts to go in a particular direction. I’ve been coming every week for a while and it really helps me!

“Traditional psychotherapy can take years, but somatic therapy is effective
in addressing integral aspects of trauma in a short amount of time. The body
can hold unconscious memories and patterns that are not released through
traditional talk therapy. Addressing body sensations and patterns creates
relief from suffering on a deep level.”
