Trauma embodiment sessions are based on the individuals circumstances. Such offerings require a minimum of 3 sessions to experience deep healing. I am trained in trauma informed meditation/yoga, release breathwork and TRE (TRE is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system.e).
Initial sessions include a 30min talk based consultation to discuss any fears or health issues before our session
The session goes for roughly an hour and a half and consists of somatic therapy (this can be in the form of cathartic release work, breath work, guided meditation and tremor release). My ultimate goal is to encourage you to acknowledge and release the pain so that it no longer constricts within the body.
Have you ever had the experience of being unable to control overwhelming emotions? Maybe your lips quivered, your legs or hands shook involuntarily. This tremor sensation is the body’s most organic method of releasing tension that has become charged within the system. Such tremoring or shaking has been and still is seen as a pathological weakness. As a consequence, we freeze or suppress the response, maybe resorting to medication, drinking or drugs instead.
Trauma can include life experiences like a parent not being emotionally available, loss of a loved one, divorce, a bad accident, long-term illnesses, emotional abuse, living with a loved one with addiction issues, and so forth.
It can also be secondary and indirect (heard from another source and taken on by you)
- Trauma affects us physically, mentally, and emotionally.
- It leaves a lasting imprint on the mind, body, and brain.
- When a person experiences trauma, the body automatically responds with the fight, flight, or freeze reaction. This response is hardwired into the nervous system to protect us from harm and move us toward safety.
- If the body absorbs trauma and the trauma is not processed, survivors can experience hyperarousal, hypervigilance, numbness.
Trauma focused sessions are a supportive practice that helps trauma survivors recalibrate the nervous system and heal.
