The Trauma Toolbox

Trauma is what I specialize in bodywork. Trauma can relate to PTSD, Anxiety & Panic Disorders, Mild to Moderate Depression, Stress, Domestic & Sexual Abuse, and much more. Many things, from childhood to adulthood, can cause traumatic issues that can sit in the brain and body for decades. This toolbox is a list of things I have tried and used in my own personal growth that might aide you through your own journey to wellness and can be added to your own personal toolbox of restoring your being.
