AND TRAUMA CONDITIONS
Therapy is very effective at treating conditions of shock
or trauma. Often we are not able to fully recover from experiences
in life especially when they overwhelm us. This effects
both our mind and body. The forces that create this can
come from many different sources.
Traumatic injuries to the body are one such category, for
example, an injury from a car accident. The body goes into
a state of shock and depending on the severity of the accident
and our state of health at the time it is often not able
to recover. The therapy can help to bring the body out of
shock and repair damaged tissues.
Trauma can also come from other sources, such as abusive or violent acts or environments. Even if there
is no physical assault we can still be deeply distressed
by abusive behaviour and develop emotional responses that
effect our ability to function in life.
Some of the symptoms this can create are:
tiredness, difficulties sleeping or eating, tension, lack
of confidence, anxiety and fearfulness, worried thoughts,
These may manifest slowly and much later in life. These experiences and the response to them become imprinted
in the body and the mind but it is often the body's response
that does not resolve. For a Craniosacral Therapist the
important element in treatment is to aid the body to return
to its original health. Much of this comes when the
body begins to integrate as a whole and comes out of shock.
