Your Secret Enemy that Undermines your Life

Did you know that recent research published by Harvard Medical School showed that “bottling up” trauma from your past – no matter how mild or seemingly insignificant – is linked to chronic health conditions later in life?

The list of common symptoms associated with these conditions is dizzying to say the least – it includes things like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Lack of focus/concentration
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer
  • Obesity
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss

And much more…

The really interesting thing about trauma is the ways it affects different people. Two people can go through the exact same experience but feel something completely different.

What’s most concerning though is that lots of people don’t even realize they’ve stored these things away inside of them – and left unaddressed, it can make a person sick!

Even worse, traumatic experience tend to bioaccumulate in the body – so the risk for psychological & physical health problems increases dramatically the more traumatic events you’ve experienced.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, then it’s time to learn about one of the most overlooked contributors to chronic illness…  TRAUMA

Worldwide, mental health issues have nearly tripled in the past few years.

Many of us are underliving our potential because of the retained effects of early life trauma, whether mental, emotional or physical which often leads to negative thoughts and negative neuroplasticity. (                               

This shows itself most obviously as chronic physical illness which prevents us from freely exercising choices, but more insidiously in sub-clinical dysfunctional patterns such as poor immunity, lack of energy, lack of confidence, anxiety and fearfulness.

Illness, rather than being viewed entirely negatively, can become a creative tool for sorting out our lives and redesigning our futures. To achieve this, we need an approach which enables us to listen to and learn from both mind and body. Most healthcare approaches separate mind and body – either physical therapy or psychotherapy, the body hospital or the mind hospital.

We know however that a radical change in physical health, whether for the better or the worse, is invariably accompanied by profound mental change. We also know from studies of behaviour and body language that the reverse is equally true – a major change in mental perspective is always accompanied by a change in body activity, posture and movement.

Which is why we want to offer you solutions because we know how debilitating, frustrating, and lonely it can feel when you’re struggling with Trauma

The basis of SomatoEmotional Release® (SER) and other somatic therapies that facilitate emotional and physical healing is that people sometimes retain an emotional experience physically, leading to loss of flexibility in an organ and/or local connective tissue with resultant impairment of function and possible pathology. Working hands-on – sometimes assisted by dialogue, sometimes not – it is often possible to facilitate the release of the affected tissue concurrently with resolution of the associated emotional issue. We have 30 years of experience of helping people process trauma and trauma related illnesses.
