Traumas, be they emotional and psychological or physical, involve both the body and the mind. Allopathic medicine usually advocates drug regimes that tend to divorce the mind from the body.
Body Sensing Mindfulness is a Somatic (mind-body) healing practice that uses the body’s innate wisdom to release tension and negative feelings and help to rewire negative moods through centering and realigning our sense of being through movement and mindfulness.
Mindfully integrating breath, mood and movement promotes a sense of harmony, balance and flow which has proved to be particularly effective for people suffering from stress and anxiety and the resulting physical symptoms such as chronic back pain, migraines fibromyalgia and other autoimmune conditions.
