Wellness is about a ones internal experience of their body (awareness), the ability to make constructive and healthy choices, and the ability to enjoy life and be well/balanced.
The feeling of BEing alive/vital/prana.
We perceive our world through our nervous system
It is through our nervous system that we coordinate the function of every cell, organ, and tissue within our body.
Every region of the body and every emotion is expressed through the nervous system.
It is the vehicle we use to create our conscious reality.
Our nervous system allows our inner world to interact with our outer world.
So, when an event occurs that our brain decides is not safe for us to fully experience (safety mechanism for survival) at that particular time, the energy and information of the event is translated into vibration and tension which is then stored in the body until we are ready address it later... (For most, this later never comes). The vibrations of tension are ignored,
(E)motion=Energy in Motion...when we are children, we are so good at emoting because we haven't developed the strategies to eloquently voice our feelings of dislike, hurt, pain ----instead we scream, cry, and throw things; going for the all out tantrum I was so fond of in my youth. In a sense, this is healthy behavior because we are releasing the energy from within us. As adults, we are no longer encouraged to cry, yell, fall out, shake and have a full on tantrum....we would be emitted into the psych ward I'm certain or remain heavily medicated (don't cope, take dope mentality).
and become tension within the fascia, over time distorting the spinal system. The spinal bones (vertebrae) lose their normal range of motion and alignment. Muscles and ligaments begin to pull and strain and the nerves become compressed or stretched and irritated in that area/region, resulting in abnormal/unhealthy function.
As the nervous system is put under pressure, the spine is no longer able to right itself. Outside intervention is called upon. Think analgesic, surgery, nerve blocks, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga, reiki, etc...Our body "closes off" to the offending energy and tension and over time, muscular tightness, spinal distortion, reduction of breath/oxygen into the area occurs, consequently resulting in reduction of movement/decreased range of motion, leading to cellular death/decay (if its not moving, its dying).
Until it is safe to experience the energy and information of the trauma, one cannot fully heal or feel whole.
A new strategy for healing
We are looking to reorganize and develop strategies in order to experience and release the traumas of our bodies. Tension reduces/ dissipates and our system "reboots" with techniques such as breathwork, somatic embodiment, and yoga therapy, each person is able to connect the brain to the body more effectively developing a capacity to self -heal and self -correct their latent tension patterns. The brain/body connection encourages spontaneous stretching movements and enhance the breath/oxygen into those areas of vibrational dissonance (tension) which helps release tension in the spine, nervous system, and throughout the rest of the body (think fascial system here). Detoxifying, cleansing, and awakening/restoring the Chi where it was disrupted.
Lack of safety is the basis for all physiological stress and the way we accumulate this stress is directly associated with the way we experience the world (perception).
