If you’ve been around for a while, you know that trauma is not in the event. It’s in the body, which includes our neurochemistry, nervous systems, and much more!
And that healing involves releasing that trapped traumatic stress to restore regulation back to the autonomic nervous system.
This is an important question. And likely one that drew you to my content and resources in the first place.
I provide a comprehensive answer in this vlog: How is Trauma REALLY Released?
Spoiler alert: There is NO one-size-fits-all approach for releasing trauma at the nervous system and somatic levels.
AND there are things you can start doing TODAY that will help your system let go of the old abuses, hurts, and harms organically.
Here’s a peek at what you’ll learn in this video:
- What trauma actually is and why there’s no one way to release trauma.
- Why fancy breathing, tapping, or shaking techniques don’t restore nervous system regulation.
- What trauma release might look like based on the type of trauma you experienced (shock trauma, early and developmental trauma, etc.).
- Why education and learning to follow your impulses is (and always will be) the holy grail of trauma release.
I also cover some helpful trauma release-related Q&As at the end.
If you’re looking for a vlog that sums up everything I teach around here (trauma and how to heal from its toxic effects), this is a video you’ll want to watch.
PS I’ve been in this world of healing and teaching people how to heal since 1997. If my math is correct, that’s over a quarter of a century! If you’re brand new to my world, I invite you to check out my shiny credentials and read the story of my own healing journey, here <<
