“The body remembers because it’s the scene of the crime. This memory is expressed through body voices-how a person breathes, speaks and moves.” – Carolyn J Braddock
All experience embeds itself in body tissue. Traumatic experiences – sexual, physical, emotional or spiritual – when left unresolved can result in chronic body contraction, numbness, restricted movement, and constriction of breath and sound. As we go on with our stress filled and fast paced lives we become increasingly constricted. We feel disconnected and alienated from our body-mind-spirit matrix.
Components traditionally identified as being influential in the formation of our human beingness are:
- Physical activity and exposure
- Emotional/psychological activity and exposure
Issues of trauma on the cognitive and emotional level can be softened and healed through psychotherapy which is an effective means of enhancing self discovery and understanding.
Somatic approaches to healing can facilitate the exploring and reclaiming of those lost parts of our selves that have been taken or altered by trauma. Trauma therapies provide a safe environment in which to experience appropriate healthy touch, and to explore body sensation or lack thereof. Embodiment patterns of trauma can be explored and treated through breath, sound and movement. Conventional therapeutic massage and Polarity Therapy are also utilized in trauma recovery with the intention of integrating body, mind and spirit.
