Trauma is part of our lives

There is a huge stigma around the word TRAUMA. It is believed that only the populations in war-torn countries experience it while they live in conflict areas. But trauma is everywhere! It doesn’t start only by being in a womb of a stressed mother, by having parents who fight and go through divorce, it goes on with falling of a bicycle and breaking an arm or in school when having fights with friends, exam stress, work deadlines and relationship stress, surgeries, illness and death of a loved one; some theories explain how trauma starts before we come to this word and that trauma gets transferred from generation to generation… Everything that the body experiences as traumatic, from emotional to physical gets stored in the body and needs to be released. So its only natural that trauma is all around us and that its part of everyones life.

Therefore recognising it in ones body is the first step to recovery; acknowledging the trauma and not to judge it or feel shame around it is difficult for most people. Our society teaches us not to show weakness and to “just get on with it”, which creates all kinds of destructive patterns of survival mechanisms within our body and mind though out or life – for example chronic pains, additions, anxiety. But there are many ways to get the trauma out of the system and find release and so it comes down to finding a body based modality that feels right, a therapist who resonates with one and a safe space to work through what ever the body is holding on to.

TRE is a gentle and very effective therapy, a tool for life that makes significant impact in peoples lives, not only by releasing stress from the body but also by balancing the nervous system at the same time.

JUST FOR TODAY, DON NOT WORRY.

JUST FOR TODAY, DON NOT ANGER.

HONOUR YOUR PARENTS, TEACHERS AND ELDERS.

Today I was initiated in the 1st and 2nd degree of the Usui System of Natural Healing.
An amazing experience.. full of wisdom, love and light for myself and to share with everyone I meet.

Advanced Provider Status

The TRE community rewarded me with a new status, the Advanced TRE Provider status. It is a special recognition for TRE Providers who go the extra mile. The time I have put into upskilling myself as well as the running tailor-made TRE sessions for other Providers as well as my continues work in underprivileged communities has been acknowledged.

THANK YOU – This only makes me want to share the power of TRE with as many people as possible.. :-)

TRE with juvenile boys in Ottery

Christine and I have run weekly sessions with the boys since October 2015. Its been an interesting journey… Phhheewwww! I feel very lucky to have TRE so I tremor the stress out after running the sessions with these boys.. 😉

The boys come from troubled backgrounds and have been sent to the Education and Care Centre by the High Court, however just like all teenagers they are gentle and a lot of fun as well!

 

Course with Soil For Life

The 6 weeks course with the Trainers and Management from Soil For Life Organization in the green oasis setting in the middle of Constantia has been an absolute pleasure! The participants loved “this new shaking thing” Christine and I introduced them to and felt the benefits from session 1 already. They have committed to continue their own practice as team building exercise as well as to use TRE as personal health empowerment tool in the future… Mission accomplished I would say! :-)

Happy festive season & an even happier 2016!

I hope you will enjoy the long break and get some rest before this year ends.. Long walks on the beach or the mountain and some quality time with family and friends. What ever you are up to don’t forget to charge the batteries for 2016!

I’ll be in and out of CT and will be available for private clients, so get in touch if you need to shake off some tension and restore your body and mind! Otherwise see you in the New Year! It will be a great one.. :-)

The next group session will be on the 13th January 2016. Thereafter every 2nd Wednesday. Same time, same place.. Email me if you don’t won’t to miss any upcoming group classes – Our mailer goes out on the Monday before the session.
