What Is A Trauma ?

 A trauma is any incident in your life either physical, emotional, psychological or a thwarted belief, small or large, that startles you and/or creates an uneasy feeling in your body. Your brain takes in this information but your Nervous System deciphers if it's a trauma or not. 

Simple Traumas

Shots of any kind & stitches

Stubbing your toe

Biting the inside of your lip or tongue

Banging your knee

Dental operations, shots, teeth pulled

Vomiting, Asthema attacks constricting breath

Seeing a scary situation

Seeing a scary scene in a movie, TV or Website

Hearing something scary

Afraid of the dark then being left in the dark

Getting lost in a store

Getting stung by a bee

A minor nose bleed

Being cut off in traffic or yelled at by a stranger or friend 

Religious belief being questioned

Being accused of lying when you're telling the truth

Inconsistant instructions at work or by a loved one.

Losing a family member, parents fighting &/or splitting

                         and on and on......

And I haven't begun mentioning the major, obvious ones 

like breaking a bone or a car accident.

In short ... if you are alive you have nerve trauma.

Fight or Flight and Your Nerves

When you get Injured.....

  • The Nervous System sends emergency signals to the injured area.

  • Immediately your larger muscles swell to protect and stabilize the affected area.

  • Sometimes this swelling can lead to bones being displaced which can result in chronic pain.

  • This is a natural response and how our Nervous System helps us cope with intense situations known as "fight or flight".

  • Our body is built to naturally reset the nerves through deep REM sleep for 5 to 8 continuous hours, which is rare for many people in this day and age. 

  • Bowen Therapy's direct access of the nerves allows the nervous system to reset and relax without REM Sleep. 

  • Lakshmi offers Bowen sessions to relieve stress, anxiety, trauma, and pain (both immediate and chronic), and periodic group and private exercise classes to help you stay healthy, flexible and strong!
