I have been doing a lot of work on trauma release

      I am discovering  many trauma release techniques:

there are probably more such as :

music therapy

walking long walks


my aim is to share what I have read and what I have found useful

how useful any technique will depend on many factors including:

  • the cause of the trauma
  • the age at which the trauma occurred
  • in the case of child sexual abuse,
  •  weather the abuser was a relative, a friend,
  •      or a person in a position of trust or authority.
  • weather the abuse was in a secular or religous setting.
  • the relationship with the therapist
  • what one can afford.
  • the setting where therapy takes place

personally I use an interdisiplinary approach.

     I also found that trauma was stored in my body

therapists call it body memories.

     I do have a trauma release therapist ( talk only)

however because the trauma in my case was two years and under I had max body memories


    Causes of trauma:

  • I am an adult survivor of infant sexual abuse and emotional abuse in my childhood.
  • survivors of car collisions experience trauma
  • returned soldiers carry trauma
  • trauma from natural desasters
  • other life crises which leave residual traumatic memories.




After around three years of trauma release it is easy to write in generalities
from ones memory
giving ones summary.

    This would do a great injustice to my level of research,
my many Google searches
my discussions with my health care professionals
and the authors of the books I have read.

Some books I found useful and useful links .
