Trauma is stored in the body physically. Many people experience physical complaints of migraines, stomach and GI issues, muscle tension, inability to sleep or concentrate, pressure in chest, racing heart, shaking in hands or other parts of the body. Many times people will find themselves in the ER for fear they are having a heart attack, to be released later realizing that they were experiencing a panic attack or severe anxiety. Memory and experiences are encoded in the body physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Unresolved and unprocessed traumatic experiences of the past can be triggered in our current day to day life and the body will respond somatically. EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy help the body as well as the brain to process through the unresolved or “stuck” sensations.
