Remember that traumatic events, no matter how small they may seem to us at the time, contain a multitude of energy (both physical and emotional) that may leave behind a fingerprint if we are unable to fully process and release them.
Our nervous system is incredibly complex, and controls everything from our stress levels to our moods at any given moment. And since earthing is an electromagnetic force, it works directly with the nervous system to encourage balance in both body and brain, and is a great addition to any holistic wellness plan.
There is incredible transformation possible when using energy medicine in such tough cases, and that’s not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to holistic world of healing. Because trauma and stress affect the nervous system, up-regulating it into “fight or flight” mode, it’s a wise therapeutic move to focus on modalities that have shown to be effective in down-regulating the nervous system.
Because this condition is so intricate and deeply personal, the treatment options are varied, running the gamut with medication, exposure therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), and alternative treatments like acupuncture, Qi gong, massage, Reiki, Craniosacral therapy and more. Over the coming weeks, we’ll explore some of these modalities and their benefits in treating PTSD, starting today with Reiki.
