How Long Does It Take To Release Trauma From Your Body

Posted by Kelsey Juntwait on

When you experience trauma — whether that's physical trauma or emotional trauma — your body has an immediate reaction to store that trauma somewhere.

And the longer it takes for you to "deal" with said trauma (or heal from it...), the longer your body will react to that stored trauma with both physical and psychological symptoms.

So it's necessary to release trauma from your body


How To Release Trauma From Your Body

The best way to release trauma from your body is by starting a somatic healing program or by doing somatic exercises.

Somatic exercises are gentle movements that connect your physical body to your emotional body. And these movements can be done by anyone and can also be done anywhere.

With no equipment necessary and no limitations to how much exertion you can handle, somatic exercises are the answer to SO many problems.

Somatic exercises can:

  • Release trauma from your body
  • Heal your chronic inflammation 
  • Re-balance your hormones
  • Relieve your sciatic nerve pain
  • Get rid of chronic back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain
  • Stop your night-time jaw clenching
  • Get rid of your relentless insomnia
  • Curing digestive issues
  • Get rid of your daily headaches
  • Clear your brain fog
  • Help you finally lose unwanted weight
  • & so much more...

Somatic exercises connect the physical body to the psychological, emotional, and mental parts of you — allowing all parts of your body to communicate with one another.

And when that happens, you'll be able to release trauma from your body while also treating the physical and mental signs and symptoms that trauma is creating.

But how long does it actually take to release the trauma?

How Long Does It Take To Release Trauma From Your Body

The amount of time it takes to release trauma form your body will actually depend on your individual experienced trauma, and can take anywhere from a few days to a few months.

However, there are things you can do to assure that the trauma release will occur earlier rather than later.

And one of those things is committing to a healing method that'll consistently and strategically release your trauma with a scientifically-backed program.

Another thing you can do is to know exactly where in your body your trauma is stored. This allows you to pick the right somatic exercise program to target the right part of the body.
