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

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

Who do I help?

I help people recover from stress and trauma using safe, boundaried touch, breathing and mindfulness techniques, and movement.

You might be struggling with chronic stress, anxiety, depression, numbness and hopelessness. You might have troubling symptoms such as gut upset, sleep disturbance, or abrupt mood swings and over-reactions. You might have extreme tiredness and loss of energy. You might feel disconnected from friends and family, or find yourself just going through the motions in life. You might even have turned to addictive behaviors or substances in order to manage.

Rooted Bliss integrative somatic healing can help you rediscover a sense of home within yourself.

Perhaps your doctor has prescribed pills or surgery, or you are already in talk therapy, and you are seeking natural healing alongside these methods. Rooted Bliss can complement the work you are already doing.

Imagine finally breaking through and moving forward into your life with a renewed sense of vitality, hope, and real inner peace.

I can help you reconnect to your body, heal old patterns of destructive self-talk, and address physical symptoms naturally.

I also welcome individuals seeking greater wellness, even if there is no specific issue you need to resolve!

Kate Hartman, C-IAYT, SEP

It is my passion to help others get their lives back. I believe that healing is a human right, and that not only recovery, but resilience, is possible. I work with your body-mind and your nervous system to release the constrictions of stress and trauma, so that you can have access to the fullness of your own vitality, creativity, and joy. Why should you trust me? I’ve been there! 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 can refer you to a variety of other practitioners so that you can find the healing you deserve.

What is Rooted Bliss?

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

Sometimes the storms of life leave us feeling lost and disconnected, unable to function.

I offer a gentle listening presence, embodied inquiry, tools from yoga including mindfulness and breath work, somatic trauma work, and attachment-oriented, safe touch skills to directly balance your nervous system and heal the body-mind disconnect that’s responsible for many troubling symptoms.

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.

Thank you! That was wonderful. I loved being supported, and I felt trusting. Kate – you are a great listener!

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 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.”
