Unlock Somatic Healing:
Release Trauma from the Physical Body
If you are a human living on planet earth, you have experienced trauma. It is a natural byproduct of being alive. Some people have experienced truly horrific traumas (think war veterans, refugees or sexual abuse victims), but you do not have to experience these types of extreme circumstances to experience trauma.
Because every person is different, what may be perceived as traumatic to one person may not be to another. And sometimes even seemingly simple or mundane events can be perceived by an individual to be traumatic. Or a series of small but repeated events can build upon themselves to accumulate in the body as trauma. At the heart of it all, it doesn’t matter what the event was: if a person feels that an event was traumatizing to them, then it was.
The Side Effects of Trauma and How it Can Negatively Impact Your Life
Everybody responds differently to trauma, but if you are experiencing any of the following ailments with no relief, it may be time to seek out a solution:
Intense Fear or Anxiety
Irritability and Anger
Guilt and Shame
Changes in Appetite
Many people seek out talk therapy or try medications in order to get relief from trauma. While these remedies can be very valuable, they don't address one key factor: that emotional trauma can be stored in the physical body itself. And until the trauma is removed from the physical body (something talk therapy and medications just don't do), you may continue to struggle.
Fortunately, There is a Solution with Our Somatic Healing Acupuncture Packages for Trauma Relief
If trauma is negatively impacting your life and how you show up in the world, it may be time to try something new. We specialize in a treatment protocol called The Internal and External Dragons and have found that these treatments are fantastic for alleviating trauma somatically from the body and mind. Here's how it works:
The Internal Dragon treatments are a series of three acupuncture treatments. In order for these treatments to work most effectively, you need to receive one Internal Dragon treatment per week for three weeks. What this treatment series does is it focuses on "cracking open" the heart (where many emotions are stored), to pull them up and out of the body. Then your stomach comes into play to help you literally and figuratively "digest" said trauma, process it and eventually remove it from the physical body.
The External Dragon treatments are a second set of three acupuncture treatments that also need to be received once a week for three weeks. What this treatment series does is to clear your head and mind from old negative thought forms, behaviors and patterns that you developed as a result of the trauma you had been living with.
In Addition to Acupuncture, You Will Receive:
Journal and Prompts
You'll get a physical journal with special journaling prompts so you can utilize the power of writing as you are going through the dragon treatments.
During each acupuncture session, you will get to experience a guided meditation that is focused on helping you to get the most out of your treatments.
You will also receive a mini sound bath during each treatment. The vibrations of the sound will help to relax your body and be more open to healing.
How Acupuncture Helps Remove Trauma from the Body and Mind
Calms the Nervous System
It is highly important that trauma survivors are calm, regulated and feel safe. This will enable the best healing to happen. Acupuncture will take the body out of fight or flight mode and put it into a relaxed state. Your acupuncturist is fully trauma informed and trained and will make you feel safe.
Removes Trauma from the Body
Acupuncture is a type of body work, so it will naturally help to alleviate trauma from the physical body. But these particular acupuncture treatments are specially curated to pull trauma up from the root (the heart), allowing the body to process and digest it to move it out for good.
Alleviates Habits and Patterns
After the trauma is removed from the physical body, we then do a series of treatments to help the brain and nervous system reorient themselves. This will alleviate any remaining thoughts, behaviors, patterns, etc. that were formed as a result of living with the trauma that was just cleared.
Available Packages for Somatic Healing and Trauma Relief
We've made it easy for you by putting together two separate packages that utilize the Dragon treatments in order for you to finally get relief from trauma. Option one is the Internal Dragon treatment series only and option two is the Internal Dragon series plus the External Dragons. Option two is great if you are struggling with old thoughts and bad habits once we've worked the emotional trauma out of the body.
