REFLEXOLOGY AND TRAUMA
It’s a fact of life that bad things happen to all of us from time to time. We suffer bereavement, we or someone close to us has an accident, we loose our job or we become sick. However, very few of us regard these events that can turn our lives upside down as traumas. However, ‘trauma’ can be defined in its most simple terms as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience.
Hence, most of us have suffered a trauma of one kind or another and such events cause an emotional shock to the system that can lead to long term neurosis and general health problems if not recognised and dealt with in a way that releases the stress and tension of the event rather bottles it up in the subconscious where it lies draining our energy for years to come.
The health problems that can be attributed to trauma are evidenced by common phrases in our everyday language such as being ‘heartbroken’, ‘sick to the stomach’ or saying that one ‘just froze’ on seeing an accident or had a ‘shock to the system’. We have an innate recognition that trauma can cause physical as well as mental problems, yet we tend to ignore these warnings from our own mind or body.
As a reflexologist, I often deal with people who have suffered various degrees of trauma. However, I don’t recall anybody coming to me saying they needed treatment specifically because of it. For example, one lady came to be needing treatment for fasciitis. On the second or third visit she stated that she found it hard to give love and it was apparent that she had an emotional blockage. Later in her treatment plan, she remembered something that had been suppressed in her subconscious for nearly fifty years. Her uncle had exposed himself to her and abused her as a child and the trauma had left an emotional scar. After the release of the shame and emotions surrounding her trauma, she became a much happier and well rounded individual.
No matter what the particular trauma one has suffered either recently or in the past, reflexology can be of great benefit helping to heal the mind, body and spirit of the individual. Depending on the specifics of the trauma, this can be either in conjunction with modern western medicine or independent of it. Either way, the benefits are real and well documented.
