In preparation for TOMORROW’s BOOK CLUB where we will discuss the book “The Body Keeps the Score,” here is a short video of the book’s author Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk talking about how to “detoxify the body from trauma.”
In reading through the comments on the video, this one by Mike V. stood out (emphasis added):
“Trauma gets ‘discovered’ and ‘forgotten.’ I couldn’t agree more. Mine gets forgotten like a file folder in a corporate office building in the 1980’s. I’ve had a lot of difficulty around accepting that trauma has changed my brain and body. I’ve done a lot to numb my pain throughout my life.
“This year, I BEGAN INCORPORTATING YIN YOGA INTO MY LIFE. It’s a style stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. EVERY TIME THAT I DO IT, I PHYSICALLY FEEL EMOTIONS BEING RELEASED FROM MY BODY. Oftentimes, I feel so vulnerable afterward that I don’t know what to do with myself.
“Ultimately, this has been a healing year for me and I have to thank Bessel van der Kolk for that.”
