“Until recently, this bidirectional communication between body and mind was largely ignored by Western science… Today it is transforming our understanding of trauma and recovery.”
-Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
As professionals in the Health & Wellness Community, we share a common goal for our clients: To feel more at home in the mind and body.
At Mind Body Co-op our licensed psychotherapists and certified movement therapists form a therapeutic alliance with clients to transform trauma and chronic pain in the mind and body. Clients build awareness, compassion, understanding, respect, empathy and acceptance toward the self and others.
The team, therapists and the client, observe recurring patterns, resolve confusion about past experience, access physical/emotional blocks and dysfunctional movements. With a stronger, more stable physical foundation, emotional and intellectual expressions become richer.
Somatic Therapy does not require the re-telling or re-living of the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve-in a slow and supported way-the body’s instinctual fight, flight and freeze responses. Individuals locked in anxiety or rage then relax into a growing sense of peace and safety. Those stuck in depression gradually find their feelings of hopelessness and numbness transformed into empowerment and triumph.
Resolving the trauma launches corrective bodily experiences that contradict those of fear and helplessness. This resets the nervous system, restores inner balance, enhances resilience to stress, and increases people’s vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life.
RELEASE STUCK STRESS: Physical shifts in the body are immediate once the nervous system integrates.
Efficient and easy to apply, simple methods to maintain a balanced nervous system even when triggered are practiced to create a seamless transition from session to the outside world.
TRANSFORM CHRONIC PAIN
‘ISSUES IN THE TISSUES’
Chronic pain may stay with us for months, years, perhaps decades.
What do we do with trauma in the body after the acute wound has healed?
Untreated trauma, emotional and/or physical may live in the body as chronic pain ie: migraines, joint pain, TMJ, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, back pain, plantar fasciitis, dropped arches and residual pain after surgery due to scar tissue.
Chronic physical pain depletes the emotional body.
Chronic emotional pain depletes the physical body.
REBOOT: To reboot the body, we move with sensitivity and awareness. Strengthening from the back body. Springing forward with power and grace. We re-pattern and heal scar tissue.
One solution to living pain free is a safe and effective functional movement program. We move with sensitivity and awareness to expand and strengthen the body whole allowing the body to self-heal.
Relief begins immediately and all you need for practice is your body.
The fusion of Somatic Therapy, stress release techniques and dynamic movement is a modern approach to living a life of embodiment. Mastering the dance of the nervous system is key to resilience.
From fixity to flow, neuro pathways heal and the body’s innate mechanism to feel safe is restored.
