Trauma release exercises (or tension release too) — the body speaks

(Update 2015 - From the archives. This is something I can again do now if and when appropriate. Our body/mind/spirit changes as it heals. I also found that the neurogenic tremors arose spontaneously in my yoga practice quite often when I simply relaxed in savasana at the end of a yoga session. I took to letting them come. Our bodies know this stuff. It is not new, it is ancient knowledge that our bodies know. How silly that we need a trademarked version to make us remember. But alas, most of us do. This is a good system. Go easy and listen to the body. If it's not the right time for this it's not the right time. Those of us with severely impacted nervous systems from psychiatric drug withdrawal need to become highly adept at respecting the body's timing. It always knows best. ) This is a post I did about a year ago. I’ve not been using this particular method of release anymore as it actually prompts a release that is too much for my compromised body at this time. The method, is, however, very good for people who are physically healthy and not in rehab. I’m sharing the post again because I continue to find that our bodies hold trauma and psychological distress in ways that we are just beginning to understand. We are truly holistic beings and our minds and bodies are intricately intertwined. The segments I share about the video talks a bit about that.
