Emotional Trauma

Deep within the brain, for years after trauma, the subconscious mind holds onto memories associated with the event or injury. All of the sense memories are stored as a kind of emotional snapshot, that can be resurrected years, even decades later by simple sights, smells, sounds, tastes, or textures. When these re-emergences occur, phantom pains associated with the original trauma can be felt as if they were almost new. Massage therapy can help rehabilitate trauma survivors by bringing healthy touch to someone who has suffered chronic pain or emotional trauma including those who’ve survived emotional and physical abuse, assault, and even combat related injuries.

 

Physical Trauma

Too often after physical traumas both large and small, the body can overcompensate during recovery. As the body retrains itself to move efficiently after an injury, it can often overwork parts of the body and create great strain and pressure for muscles as well as neighboring ligaments, tendons, and tissue. Without treatment even simple injuries can worsen over time to produce a great deal of physical stress on the body. Massage therapy can be of great benefit to relieving tension and even retraining the muscles, allowing the body to find a new balance without the physical strain.

If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with. - Deepak Chopra
