The Significance of Trauma

Emotional trauma leads to 90% or our health issues.

Our life experiences are stored in the cells of our body.  Our body’s cells are like a library of all that has happened to us. What you may not realize is that each of these individual cells holds and records information like a memory – we call this cellular memory. This means that every impactful experience that we have been through, is imprinted into our cells. This imprint is left not only in our mind or in our nervous system, but in every single cell in our body.

Trauma is an embodied experience. It lives in people’s bones, veins, arteries, tissues, muscles and organs. It is in their cells, hearts and souls.  Cellular memory means that trauma can have a long lasting or even delayed effect on our body, even if we have “worked through” the trauma psychologically. Trauma can hit even the strongest among us, with great force. 

The adrenal and limbic systems control or are responsible for our fright/flight response and the emotions of rage and anger.  The skilled Integrative Manual Therapists of Power In Motion, utilize cutting-edge, hands-on, manual therapy to delicately work with these systems, to enable the body to painlessly release stored, cellular trauma and memory. Combined with talk or psychotherapy, Integrative Manual Therapy is a life-changing intervention.Our individual responses to stress and trauma, can significantly impact our immune function, brain chemistry, blood sugar levels, hormonal balance and much more. While the mechanics of these mind-body links are still being unraveled, what is known is that your brain and consequently your thoughts and emotions, do play a role in your experience of physical pain, playing a significant role in the development of chronic disease.  It has also been found to increase the rate at which tumors grow. One of the reasons for this, has to do with the way the biological stress response promotes inflammation in your body.
