Trauma-Sensitive Qigong

Trauma
Book Now

It is scientifically proven that practicing gentle bodily movements with high consciousness is a great tool in maintaining and healing mental health, in addition to their undeniable benefits for the body. Qigong movements have their roots in Chinese medicine and Taoist and Buddhist practice and have been used for thousands of years as a tool for wellbeing and health. 'Qi' is the "life force energy" that pulsates, vibrates, and is moving in the universe and although its most vibrant form is in the living creatures, it is beyond that. 'Gong' means “developing skill”. So Qigong is a series of practices and techniques from herbal medicine, and acupuncture to meditation and martial arts that aim to maintain and recreate wellbeing by working on the body, breath, and mind, meaning by cultivating Qi in our system.

 

Qigong helps with anxiety, stress, and especially PTSD symptoms since among many benefits, Qigong reduces the nervous system's reactive response and increases the parasympathetic relaxation response. As a level 3 Qigong instructor and a trauma-informed coach, I have designed trauma-sensitive qigong courses for body and mind balance. Being trauma-sensitive means that the way that I deliver the instructions and the movements that I choose is with consciousness and knowledge of how it might be perceived by people who have suffered (or are suffering) from traumatic and distressful incidents. I create a space for those that are suffering from anxiety and chronic stress, and PTSD to get in touch with their body and bring their mind in connection with it. The goal of the classes, ultimately, is to help reduce the symptoms and allow for more relaxed and more connected with one’s self day-to-day experiences. 

 

Regarding the physical benefits: Qigong not only works our internal organs by massaging our kidneys, digestive systems, etc. but also gently moves and massages our facia, the connective tissue that surrounds and holds each organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. When we are stressed, our facias in some parts of the body tighten up and cause pain in different parts of the body and nerves. Eventually, these tangles can lead to various health issues. Qigong movements, when done with high awareness, remove the tangle in the facias and prevent its entanglement.

Guided Imagery & Meditations

In my group mediation courses, I combine spiritual words, meditation techniques, breathing techniques, and guided imagery together with bilateral stimulation to target different mental distresses. Below is a short explanation of why each of these elements is needed in targeting mental distress. The topic of my group meditation, therefore, differs targeting different distressing events or mental distress.   

 

Meditation, I believe, is a crucial element of mental wellbeing. There are many techniques out there. The one that I like to use is about putting our heart toward the Source of creation and communing with our higher self and reconnecting to our divine reality. Many of today’s challenges are really the result of our disconnection from spirituality and instead of it, aiming to reciprocate this fundamental need with things such as food, excess use, excess joy, or addictive behaviors such as workaholism.   I also like to use guided imagery (GI). GI is about creating positive mental images to evoke a state of relaxation or physiologic change.  Imagery is a way that our nervous system stores, processes and accesses information and codes our dreams, fantasies, memories, etc.  Various research has shown that guided imagery can help with managing and relieving pain, improving chronic disability, reducing anxiety and stress, quitting unhealthy habits such as smoking, reducing depression symptoms, and improving some PTSD symptoms such as trouble with sleeping.  

 

Guided imagery is a powerful proprietary method of personal and psychological inquiry and must be used by knowledgeable practitioners as it can be overwhelming for some people that are suffering from certain mental illnesses as it exposes them to high levels of affect.   Breathing techniques are fundamental in reducing the physiological and psychological distress symptoms as breathing impacts positively both our body and mind. When breathing and guided imagery are combined with bilateral stimulation creates a powerful tool for training our brain in ways it gives meaning to our experiences and processing them. Bilateral stimulation is a technique, in which we activate both sides of the brain simultaneously for creating new positive neural networks regarding our memories and learnings.
