The hidden layers of the body:
The body spends every moment of the day adapting to stress. The body is constantly processing stress from sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touch, etc. whether they be good or bad. The body makes appropriate changes (Physical, Chemical, Emotional, Electrical, Organ systems) to balance itself to the demand of all the stressors.

If the amount of stress is constantly high, with no way of release, the body follows the Hans Selye General Adaptation Scale:
  1. Fight or Flight - encounter the stress
  2. Adapt to the stress
  3. Breakdown of the adrenals and thyroid

In relation to trauma, adaptation is a very big topic in psychology research fascinating. One way we adapt to trauma is through a process of Layering. The body can store trauma in so many Layers in different places.

In Kinesiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is a connection between stress and the physical tissues of the body.
Layers can settle in:
  1. Brain
  2. Organs
  3. Muscles and Ligaments
  4. Fascia
Trauma can contribute to
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Chronic Pain
  • Chronic Infections
  • Chronic Emotional Instability
We will look at the different areas of layering and ways/techniques that have been shown to help release trauma. Let’s peel off the layers!
