Nervous System Healing — Releasing Emotions And Trauma Stored In The Body
When pain, stress and tension become the norm, it’s time to make a change.
Whether you’re dealing with physical aches and pains…
Or you’re frustrated by mood swings, constant irritability, and unceasing anxiety…
Or you’re just plain burned out, stuck, hopeless and wondering if this is all there is to life…
I can help.
Who Am I?
My name is Sukie Baxter, and I have fifteen years of clinical experience working with clients to heal the emotional roots of pain and tension in their bodies.
I’m the author of Perfect Posture for Life and the founder of Whole Body Revolution, an online informational site for healthy posture, movement and aging. My work has been featured in Forbes, Chopra, Paleo Magazine Radio, Shape Up and Practical Horseman.
Over my years in clinical practice, I have consistently found one thing to be true: the cornerstone of health is a well-regulated autonomic nervous system.
Unfortunately, many things can throw your nervous system out of balance. Accidents, injuries, surgeries and other such stressful experiences can leave your body in a state of self protection. Painful emotional experiences cause tension and body armoring.
And modern life itself is inherently traumatizing through the prevalence of technology and high pressure work or school environments that don’t allow our bodies sufficient time to rest and restore themselves.
Over the years, the physical effects of trauma in your body — whether from an event or simply as a result of prolonged stress — can add up to all kinds of mental, physical and emotional pain — but you don’t have to live like this.
That’s where I come in…
The Nerve Method
In working with clients, I have witnessed the power of body-based practices to shift mental and emotional well-being. This is upside down and backwards from most conventional and even some unconventional health and healing practices which emphasize mind over matter.
But in fact, the reverse works just as well — and possibly better.
Your body has more neurons sending messages to your brain than it does sending signals from your brain to your body.
Your body is “talking” to your brain all the time.
Highly sensitive cells in your body receive impulses from your environment, absorbing information at a level below your conscious awareness.
Your body processes information one million times faster than your prefrontal cortex.
Basically, your body is your subconscious mind.
And your movement patterns are the habitual ways — functional and dysfunctional — that you have learned to respond to people, places and situations. They are your behavior patterns, which reflect beliefs about yourself, the world and your place or role in it.
It’s by working through your physical self using body-based practices that we can reset these patterns of behavior, heal old traumas and emotional scars and reprogram limiting beliefs that you’ve been carrying with you for years — possibly even your whole life.
