Trauma Healing Learning 6: Healing Trauma Through Somatic Touch (with Dr. Janice Campbell, DOM, LAC, ADS)
At some point in life, many of us are tasked with the personal journey of addressing past trauma. We often find that the road to mental wellness is paved with roadblocks, as the body physically holds onto previous life experiences and traumas. In this Trauma Healing Learning, hear how a form of gentle touch greatly impacts the lives of patients and even heals old scars. Somatic healing practitioner and licensed acupuncturist Dr. Janice Campbell discusses the mind-body connection and how laying a hand on certain areas of the body can enact significant physical (and mental) change. This practice is even useful for those who are paralyzed or amputees. Join Louise in exploring the world of intention, attention and ‘The Kidney Hold.’ Learn about the ways in which body-bound trauma is expressed through physical movement, and the somatic healing methods, including Somatic Touch, which allow the body to release internal distress.
