Are you aware that the body retains physical, mental and emotional trauma and stress in the cells, tissues and organs? The Eastern Medical model works from the standpoint that your state of well-being is equal to the sum of your constitution, genetics and all the experiences and emotions you have felt and processed over your life time. If you do not process emotions and other stressful life events efficiently and do not have the tools to let go and release trauma when it happened, your internal organs can record and absorb the energy, emotion and stress associated with it. This can set off a psychosomatic reaction every time something in life reminds the subconscious of the original stressor. If your system gets overloaded by multiple traumas it can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. (PTSD)
Each organ in the body is connected to a specific emotion and linked together by the energetic matrix of meridians and chakras. The organs react and are affected differently depending on the intensity and duration of stress and what emotions are involved. Depending on your personality type and constitution you may have a vulnerable or weak area. A physical stress can trigger an emotional issue or emotions can trigger a physical response. Symptoms can vary greatly and can include muscular tension, fatigue, digestive issues, headaches, insomnia, depression, breathing issues and beyond.

The first step to healing is to develop an awareness of the psycho-emotional connection to your body. Knowledge is a vehicle that sets healing in motion and allows you to start consciously letting go. This creates a clearing for transformation of past issues and a more optimum state of well-being.
The power of touch, which assists the balance and movement of energy can help to release cellular stress from the body/mind. One of the goals of eastern and energy healing techniques is to unwind layers of tension so they do not become entrenched within the body causing imbalance and dis-ease. Shiatsu, Acupressure, Craniosacral Therapy and Somatic Emotion Release techniques work to access and let go of layers of cellular stress held in the organs, body tissues and subconscious and prevents new layers from forming. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) allows the mind to let go of the charge around past issues. The past becomes the past as a memory but without the emotional/physical response. The goal is to connect and facilitate healing of the body, mind and spirit. Being empowered to let go of the past, to have the freedom to stop worrying about the future, to feel great as you enjoy the present and to set your spirit free!
