Reflexology and trauma in The Forest Of Dean - 11/05/2014

charles scott consulting

I have spent a fair amount of time over the last two weeks driving round the Forest and being inspired by the beauty of the surroundings. The vibrant greens of the new leaves contrasting with the darker shades of the evergreen conifers; the carpets of purple bluebells; the ever changing light permeating the glades as the Spring sunshine bursts forth and then fades as the clouds roll in; young lambs bleating for their mothers and the occasional glimpse of deer or wild boar with an entourage of small piglets in tow.

The bleakness of the winter has passed and has been replaced by new life and a new hope that uplifts the spirit. I found this all quite analogous to the cases of trauma that I have dealt with in my work performing reflexology. There has been a similar transformation from that which is forlorn to a more optimistic and meaningful future as reflexology treatments have released the negative emotions surrounding the particular trauma affecting the client.

In simple terms, trauma can be described as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Hence, most of us have experienced trauma to varying degrees although we might not have put the name ‘trauma’ to our situation. Events like the loss of a loved one, divorce, an unwelcome medical diagnosis or even moving house can all be regarded as traumas. Such events leave emotional blockages that can affect our health if not recognised and released. Reflexology seems to be very effective in treating all types of trauma and reflexology treatments are available right here in the Forest. Furthermore, reflexology is not only helpful in specific cases but is wonderfully relaxing and treats the whole body.
