Trauma, Illness and Healing

A trauma splinters the integrity of body and mind and interrupts the coherent body-mind connection necessary for health. There is a disintegration of feeling, sensing and thinking on different levels. Neither cognitive recognition nor emotional feeling/sensing alone is enough to integrate these separate areas again.

A trauma recovery can only succeed if the so-called visceral sensations, in other words the materially stored experiences from the stomach, the heart and the neck signal us that the threat and the nightmare is over and there is no danger anymore.

Therefore, it is necessary to involve the body with all its scars and wounds, to allow it to show and express itself and thereby gradually liberate itself from the burden and all its stress it has borne throughout its lifetime. As a result, it can gradually succeed that a wide variety of physical symptoms are no longer needed and can be transformed into power and life-giving energy.
