Sexual trauma affects our bodies, our mind and our emotions. It can also disrupt our spirit. Connecting with your body in a SAFE place with a safe person is ESSENTIAL for healing. As an Emergency Room nurse, I was trained as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner and on the Sexual Assault Response Team. Sexual assault is a raw experience. It is deserving of deep respect and gentleness. Your body should be a source of safety.
Anxiety, panic and flashbacks often occur with trauma, whether recent or in the past, such as with PTSD. But you SHOULD NOT have to live with them. Working with the body helps to calm, soothe and organize the Central Nervous System so that you can rest. Your body can shift from the ‘Fight and Flight’ of the Sympathetic Nervous System, to the ‘Rest and Digest’ of the Parasympathetic Nervous System. You can feel SAFE and EMPOWERED.
If you don’t have a therapist and would like to work with one, I can offer a local referral so that you have the support you deserve to heal fully. Bodywork and talk therapy are excellent tools to use together. Cutting edge trauma work is finally beginning to put together what most of us have known for a long time: the body holds our story. If we leave out the body, we may not heal as fully.
CranioSacral Therapy is always performed OVER CLOTHING. You will experience SAFETY, SECURITY and utmost GENTLENESS for the deep healing you deserve, and so that you can reclaim your self and your life.
Transforming trauma into strength IS RECOVERY.
With deep respect,
