Daily Dose Wellness

A Mind Body Nature Approach to Health

What I Treat

 

Unlock your body from trauma

Many of us struggle to overcome debilitating symptoms like:​

  •  anxiety

  •  depression

  •  insomnia

  •  pain,

  • lack of focus

  • low energy 

 

Or we may find ourselves overreacting, dissociating or becoming hyper-vigilant. I believe that many of these challenges are caused by traumas in our lives, large and small. These traumas can take root in our bodies and stay there, causing significant mental and physical symptoms like these.

Have you felt a familiar force—a wall or unseen barrier that limits your ability to complete projects, pursue passions and communicate successfully with others? This force is likely the lingering result of a stressful situation or a traumatic experience that affected the flow of your life and its trajectory.

 

There is a vast community of people like you, who resonate with the idea that

  • trauma

  • stress

  • PTSD

and other negative life experiences can cause lasting effects. If you recognize yourself as one of them, you may want to explore working through your condition with me.

 

I believe in the power of treating the physical root of trauma, simply. Together, we can develop a Daily Dose Wellness plan that will make it easy for you to work on your symptoms each day to release the physical manifestation of trauma—and, with enough practice, move on.


Note: One helpful aspect of my treatment approach is that it’s not meant to be exclusive. You can practice your Daily Dose Wellness plan alongside any other therapy (such as psychotherapy, emdr) or practice you’re using currently.

 

Common Symptoms Treated

  • Anxiety: overwhelming feelings are usually accompanied by physical symptoms (such as sweating, a racing heart, tense muscles, etc.) and changes in behavior (also known as avoidance behavior).These intense symptoms coupled with avoidant behavior move beyond “normal” feelings of anxiety and into an anxiety disorder when they begin to interfere with a person’s life. This can lead to further anxiety disorders like Social and Panic. 

  • Depression: Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite.

  • Insomnia:  Stress from a traumatic event can often lead to a variety of sleep problems. When the body is overstimulated, the brain is flooded with neurochemicals that keep us awake, such as epinephrine and adrenaline, making it difficult to wind down at the end of the day. The neurochemicals remain present in the brain and can interrupt your normal sleep cycle. The result can be insomnia, bad dreams, and daytime fatigue caused by sleep disturbance.

  • Pain:  Studies have shown that chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injury but also by stress and emotional issues. In particular, people who have experienced trauma and suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) are often at a higher risk to develop chronic pain.  Chronic pain is defined as prolonged physical pain that lasts for longer than the natural healing process should allow. This pain might stem from injuries, inflammation, and neuropathies (disorders of the nerves), but some people suffer in the absence of any of these conditions. Chronic pain can debilitate one's ability to move with ease, may hinder their normal functioning, and the search for relief can lead to pain medication, addictions, which compound the problem. Chronic pain is also often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, depression and anxiety.

  • PTSD can happen to anyone. It’s not a sign of weakness. In many ways, it’s a normal part of the traumatic healing process. Post-traumatic stress disorder can occur after you’ve experienced any type of trauma. A trauma is defined by a shocking or a dangerous event that you see or experience.
