Trauma Discharge Massage


What is Trauma Discharge Therapy?

Trauma Discharge Therapy is a new BodyMind therapy that specifically aims to reduce the amount of trauma carried or imprinted in our nervous system. It does this through the delivery of a unique type of Massage which is a powerful blend of Massage, Psychology and the very latest Neuroscience.

This Massage focuses on movements that directly impact the nervous system. These unique ‘primal’ movements speak the language of a nervous system that has taken over 500 million years to evolve. Such movements allow the accumulated trauma of both present and past generations to be released or discharged from the nervous system.

As a consequence of this discharge we build our resilience - the single most important aspect of our health and wellbeing. It does this by using a specialised approach to touch. This touch is specifically designed to provide a pathway for the ‘locked in’ energy of trauma to discharge itself out of the nervous system and the body.

One way to think of it is to consider how the electrical imbalance of the planet discharges itself through lightning. Trauma Discharge Therapy acts for trauma just like a lightning conductor acts for pent up electrical energy in nature. Think of how the thunder clouds build up more and more electrical charge in the sky until they finally discharge their pent up energy into the ground through lightning strikes.

Trauma Discharge Therapy acts like the copper lightning conductors on high buildings - the touch provides a physical and kinetic pathway for pent up accumulated trauma to escape out of the nervous system. This is probably the clearest metaphor we can use to describe Trauma Discharge Therapy.

However, this is where the metaphor ends because this trauma is discharged gently and without any drama or discomfort.
