It's not your fault if your body keeps the score...

Or when an event becomes traumatic for the body.

You were not born with trauma, somewhere in your past, an event (or several) created a scar in your body. Your mind recorded the information in image or video and your body responded in a fight, flight or freeze mode.

It is not your fault if your body learned to react a certain way. It did what it could to protect you.

The main problem is that your mind and body have NO IDEA whatsoever of TIME. Past, present and future are the same. If 20 years ago an event was strong enough to create a physiological response, your body recorded the event with a certain response (freezing, running away, sweating or heart racing...) and your mind registered the memory as an image or a video with some emotions attached to it.

Every time you will live a new experience similar to the primordial one, you reinforce (unconsciously) the behavior your body learned to protect you.

The older you get, the hardest it becomes for your mind to hold all the accumulation of experiences.

When I have clients coming for a session, whether it is Raynor massage or hypnotherapy, the body has finally the space to release. From tingling to twitching to sweating, to shaking sensation, the body can finally let it all out.

Trauma for a lot of people is similar to a big, horrible event. While it is true, a trauma can be an accumulation of "micro-trauma" which can lead to strong body reactions. We are all different and our sensitivity plays a role in the way we will 'perceive' an event. This is why in a same family, siblings who have lived similar events will most likely perceive the experience differently from each other's.

If you want to dive deeper into this topic, I highly suggest you read the book: "The body keeps the score" from Bessel Van Der Kolk MD, psychiatrist and neuroscientist. You can listen to a short interview below, where he talks about trauma.

I invite you to explore a new road of understanding of your body and mind.

You don't have to suffer in silence, there are lots of different ways to help you releasing your past. Below is a list of different techniques (alone or combined) that could help you.

  • Psychotherapy

  • Psychologist

  • Meditation

  • Counseling

  • EMDR

  • Hypnotherapy

  • Kinesiology

  • Brain Spotting

  • Cranio-sacral therapy

  • Osteopathy

  • Bodywork

  • Breathwork

  • Diet

  • More (so much more)

I helped in the past clients to release some layers of trauma with hypnotherapy and Raynor massage. If it is something you would like to explore, I do online hypno-coaching programs in English and French, all over the world. I use the method called Simpson Protocol, a non-invasive, yet powerful and transformative technique. You can check one of an online session to give you a better idea.
