TRAUMA

 

I enjoy this particular type of work with people, since it very specifically helps them reduce their suffering and improve their quality of life.

 

  

   Trauma is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence

Peter Levine      


 

I define trauma as “a violent and unexpected shock causing injury or damage which affect a person’s integrity, whether physical, mental or emotional.”

Studies have been showing for years that recovery from trauma can be greatly facilitated by bodywork. This practice allows us to recognize the visible (physical injury, anxiety) and less visible (loss of confidence, unexplainable pain and fear, fatigue, addictions) effects of trauma. The treatment continues by progressively redeveloping your different faculties, for example, by working with your emotions, confidence, integrity or limitations.

Emerging from a traumatic experience with more strength and stability is a great victory over the hardships we face.
