Trauma can take a toll on every aspect of your health Both stress and trauma cause a complete dysregulation of the nervous system and emotional center of the brain hindering the traumatized person's ability to enjoy every day common experiences.
The trauma becomes locked into the energy field, and emotions that were not able to be processed when the traumatic event occurred becomes stuck in the limbic system of the brain. If left untreated, the traumatized person will often have a heightened stress response, emotional numbing, dissociation from their bodies, and intrusive memories replaying the experience of the original trauma for many years. Overtime, without treatment, the constant triggers and the accompanying surges of stress hormones will take a toll on the traumatized person’s physical health as well, causing chronic inflammation, immune system dysregulation and debilitating chronic physical health conditions.
Working together with my clients, we tackle the many pieces needed to be unraveling for them to get their emotional and physical health back. When meeting with each new client, I listen to their story. I listen not just to what my clients are saying, but also the part they are not telling me, and the emotion and pain not implicitly expressed. Together, we look for connections between the timing of their traumatic life events, and their physical and emotional health issues.
We use specific and gentle techniques which have been shown through research to be effective at helping the traumatized person to reconnect with the missing pieces of themselves and diminish the intrusive memories that without intervention could linger a lifetime. The techniques I use are highly effective in calming the nervous system and the range of conflicting emotions, stopping the dysregulation in the body, restoring balance and helping the traumatized person to process stuck emotional traumatic events from the past. Through the use of guided imagery and energy work the client can begin to release trapped emotions, and receive healthy energetic operating instructions for the cells of the body, allowing both the body and mind to begin to heal.
