Effective Trauma Therapies
Trauma can be a short or long-term ailment caused by a variety of reasons, experiences or events. Women who experience trauma can benefit from scientific coping methods that are proven to lessen the extent of trauma and help women get their lives back on track. In order to effectively attack and treat the source of your traumatic feelings, we must first identify its symptoms.
When talking about trauma you will hear a lot about arousal symptoms or situations that can trigger feelings of post traumatic stress disorder, otherwise known as PTSD. Severely traumatic events in a woman’s life are most often a recurring and terrifying nightmare to cope with. The unwanted flashbacks and reminders of your traumatic event can be all around you at unexpected times.
Symptoms of trauma can include the following changes in personality:
Overwhelming Guilt or Shame
Feelings of Danger.
Other warning signs that a woman could be living through the aftermath of a traumatic life experience can include:
Family, friends and even strangers can recognize these warning signs of a person living with PTSD. It’s important to be supportive of trauma victims because one of the major warning signs of a traumatized individual is the feeling of helplessness and solidarity. It’s part of feeling guilty or shamed over your experience that you are too scared to talk to someone or reach out for help. That where friends and family must step up and provide the help and support she deserves. She didn’t ask to suffer, so don’t make her walk through this world alone. Reach out. It may just help save a life.

Safe, Reliable Treatment Methods
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and many other mental health problems. Scientific and evidence-based research has established EMDR as an effective treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder.
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilizes the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behavior. The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations.
Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience and involves actions, movements and activities rather than the more traditional “talk therapy.” This approach encourages patients to identify and address hidden or subconscious issues through activities such as role-playing, guided imagery, the use of props, and a range of other active experiences.
One of the many advantages of experiential therapy is that the experiences and activities that form the core of the process provide opportunities for the therapist to observe patients in situations where the patients are not focused on the therapy itself. Change, emotional growth, and personal empowerment are among the benefits of participating in an effective experiential therapy workshop.
Probably the biggest advantage of group therapy is that it helps a woman realize that she is not alone. Other women exist who need support just as you do. It’s often a revelation and a huge relief to women who attend group therapy. They find so many like-minded women ready to share their stories of struggle, hope and perseverance. This helps you find a support system that can relate to your pain and suffering. Women in group therapy listen to each other and openly provide feedback to one another. Most women often find common ground with other trauma victims while providing a safe place to open up and share your feelings with another victim.
Vibroacoustic therapy combines the physical vibrations of relaxing music with the vibrations of Pulsed Low-Frequency Sine Tones. The process of Vibroacoustic therapy involves the use of recorded music, played through an amplifier and delivered to the body via a Vibroacoustic bed or chair. The physical vibrations of both the music and the low-frequency sine tone are felt in the body and promote a feeling of calm. This form of therapy is a safe, drug-free, non-invasive approach to reducing pain, hyperactivity, stress and anxiety.
Massage therapy is a safe and effective way to soothe physical pain and to manage stress. Trauma survivors need to feel safe, valued, in control, and open enough to be intimate with boundaries and trustful with others. Massage therapy provides a comfortable and relaxed setting to help trauma survivors manage their symptoms. While massage therapy can trigger traumatic memory with some, it’s also a powerful healing tool to help patients grow and thrive through healthy nurturing, intimacy with boundaries, and loving touch.
