Healing from Trauma

I have worked with many people who have experienced trauma and I have sought out and learned many modalities and skills to help people heal.  I have also used them on myself to heal from the traumas I have personally experienced.  I believe that trauma is at the root of many emotional/mental health and relationship issues that people face.

In one training I attended Bessel van der Kulk, one of the leading experts on trauma, said that one must address the body to heal trauma – that it cannot be healed by talk therapy alone.  I agree – our experiences, memories, and especially trauma are held in the body and the body must be involved in the healing process.  The body holds so much knowledge that we can use to heal ourselves, and Soul Lightening Acupressure honors that knowledge.  Often the body’s symptoms – pain, illness, tightness, recurring injuries – are actually signals guiding us to areas that need healing – areas where our energy is congested and not flowing.  Through using the acupressure points in Soul Lightening Acupressure we are also able to access our deep wisdom/soul wisdom which can guide us in our healing journey.

I have seen and experienced personally how one can talk about a trauma and understand intellectually all of its components, origins, and how it shows up in one’s life, and yet it still keeps showing up.  Through Soul Lightening Acupressure I have personally experienced a clearing of traumatic energy from my body that makes an immediate and profound shift in the way I interact with the world around me, how I experience my own life story, and how connected I feel to the people in my life.  I feel called to share this healing with others.
