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.
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!
