Is It Trauma? I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard this.
Does this sound familiar to you?
“I haven’t slept in months” “I’m tired all the time”
“My migraines are back”
“I just don’t have the energy to go out tonight.”
“My body is so stiff, it’s like I can’t move.”
“My stomach is constantly bloated.”
“I can’t put my mind to anything right now.”
“This [insert event here] is too stressful for me, I can’t manage.”
“I work out all the time but can’t manage to drop a pound!”
When I hear complaints like these from my clients, my first question is to ask them if they have been under chronic stress. And the funny answer is that most of them say “Nothing out of the ordinary”. That’s where I start digging.
“Ordinary” is the word that we use to describe daily stressors from our life’s circumstances that are slowly chipping away at our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. “Ordinary” can be the constant angry outbursts of an abusive spouse, the ongoing pain of separation, the belief that you are not enough, or the daily demands of a special needs child.
“But that’s not trauma, that’s just my life.”
This false belief keeps millions of people trapped in the cycle of their trauma every day. And while no one’s life is perfect, identifying your stress for the emotionally destabilizing experience that it is, is essential to overcoming it. Then, you can begin taking the daily steps to conquer the body’s stress response and initiate healing.
How do I know? I have lived it. And I have helped countless others heal by naming their trauma and claiming their best life.
Using an Integrated Approach to Healing
So, what’s the secret? Why do so many find it hard to heal?
The secret is in the approach. Traditional healing modalities don’t integrate the BODY! That’s the missing piece. With an integrated body approach, we use specialized, targeted movement, and proven mindfulness techniques to peel away the layers for deep, holistic healing. The results are fast and effective; with most of my clients reporting life-changing improvement in their emotional and physical symptoms within 4 weeks.
It’s not only about surviving; it’s about thriving. And learning these techniques will help you blast through trauma and bring you back to yourself!
