Although there are many methods that are available for people looking for ways to heal, it's important to do your own research to find the ones that will be the most effective for you. Take some time to research different types of treatments and see what resonates with you. You may find that there are certain treatments or practices that have a powerful healing effect. I will break down a few of the alternative healing modalities that I have found to be extremely helpful to both myself as well as the clients I serve. Before I discuss these modalities, allow me to explain what to look for in a practitioner.
It's also important to reach out for help from a qualified practitioner or coach. When selecting a practitioner, look for someone who is trauma-informed and is a good connection for you. Someone who can help guide and support you in your journey to heal. This can be invaluable when trying to incorporate different healing modalities.
While reaching out for help is sometimes difficult, it is absolutely necessary to get to the healing place you desire. There is no shame in seeking help, as there are numerous trained professionals that specialize in helping people to heal from the effects of trauma. There are many benefits to having someone else in the healing journey with you. A trusted professional can provide encouragement and emotional support during difficult times. They can also offer techniques and practices to help you cope with the anxiety and emotional pain that you are experiencing.
It is possible to heal from the devastating effects of sexual trauma. There are numerous modalities, tools, and resources available to help you move through the process. Incorporating reiki, tapping EFT, and coaching can help with both emotional and physical healing, and seeking support from a qualified and trusted professional can help you on the path to emotional freedom.
Reiki, EFT Tapping, EMDR, and Life Coaching are all therapies that can be used to help heal sexual trauma. All of these practices work with the mind and body to heal on a physical and emotional level.
Reiki is an energy healing modality that helps to realign the body’s energy and balance chakras. It can help reduce stress, ease pain, and promote physical healing. During a Reiki session, the practitioner channels energy through their hands, sending healing vibrations through the body. This helps to unblock any blocked energy and brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
EFT Tapping is an energy therapy that helps to release physical and emotional tension in the body. During a session, the practitioner uses their fingertips to tap on various pressure points on the body to access energy meridians. This helps to release stuck energy, creating balance in the body. Tapping helps to release stress, create emotional clarity, and create new thought patterns.
EMDR is a psychotherapy technique used to process and resolve past trauma. During a session, the practitioner will focus on a single thought, image, or sensation and ask the patient to track the movement of their eyes back and forth. This eye movement helps to unblock memories that are stored in the body, allowing the patient to confront the trauma in a safe and secure space. EMDR can help to reduce feelings of anxiety, and PTSD, and can even reduce physical symptoms associated with past trauma.
Here's my favorite, life coaching! Life coaching is an amazing tool that can help survivors of sexual trauma make lasting, positive changes in their lives. It’s a specialized type of coaching that focuses on creating action plans and building coping skills to deal with and process the emotional and physical aftermath of a traumatic experience. By having someone to talk to who’s not a family member, therapist, or other forms of healthcare provider, survivors can be given a space to discuss and come to terms with the trauma.
All of these therapies can help to reduce the physical and emotional symptoms of sexual trauma. They can provide relief from anxiety, depression, and physical pain, and help the individual find healing. Ultimately, they all provide a safe space to heal and reconnect to the self.
