Stored Trauma In The Body: What Your Physical Pain Says About You

Posted by Kelsey Juntwait on

So you've heard of trauma being stored in the body and now you're wondering how to actually release that trauma from your body...

First of all, we're happy for you!!!

Because releasing the trauma stored in your body can be life-changing.

From healing your chronic pain to finally overcoming the anxiety and depression you've been dealing with for far too long, the trauma in your body is consistently stopping you from feeling your absolute best.

Releasing the stored trauma in your body can relieve:

  • Chronic inflammation 
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain
  • Jaw clenching
  • Hip popping
  • Sleep issues
  • Gut issues
  • Headaches & migraines
  • Long-term mental health issues
  • Brain fog
  • Tinnitus
  • Muscle tension
  • The inability to lose weight 

And we KNOW that you're ready to experience the relief of all those things!!

But before you do, you need to figure out where exactly your specific trauma is stored in your specific body.

Where your trauma is stored in your body and what it says about you.

You're storing your trauma in your entire body if...

You've been living in survival mode for WAY too long.

If trauma is stored throughout your whole body, you've probably experienced long-term stress over a prolonged period of time. And you might even be experiencing Dorsal Vagal Shutdown.

The trauma being stored throughout your entire body has taken a toll on your everyday life, and you're fed up with it.

Between the physical pain, the stress, the anxiety, and the various other issues you're experiencing, you know your body is supposed to feel better than this.

And you're ready to feel it.


Release The Trauma In Your Entire Body!

You're storing your trauma in your hips if...

Trauma being stored in your hips can mean A LOT of things but most commonly, that trauma all started in your childhood.

You’re probably someone who experienced a traumatic event as a kid (whether you can pinpoint it or not). And that traumatic event has seriously affected the way you deal with other stressors.

Childhood trauma can be anything from losing a parent to experiencing a flood to being bullied by classmates. You may also feel like you’re stuck in a constant state of anxiety or depression, and that you’re generally uninspired in different aspects of your life.

But even though those old wounds feel fresh, you're finally ready to start healing from them.

You're storing your trauma in your lower back if...

You probably feel burdened by a lot of responsibility right now.

And that’s causing you to feel anger towards the people closest to you.

You fear that your basic emotional and physical needs aren’t being met, but you also feel like you don’t have the time and energy to practice any self care lately.

You might be experiencing some financial struggles currently and you often find yourself putting up a wall with people who want to get closer to you.

You're not sure how much longer you can feel these things though, and you're ready to release your trauma.

You're storing your trauma in your neck if...

You have trouble communicating your needs to the people around you so you’ve developed a bad habit of compromising your own feelings in important situations.

You’re someone who willingly takes on more than they can handle, even when you WANT to say no. But that leads you to resent people for not lending a helping hand — even when you don't speak up and ask for help.

You have a fear of disappointing people and constantly feel like you need to prove to those closest to you that you van handle everything.

You know it's time to finally start asking for help, and you know it starts with your stored trauma.

You're storing your trauma in your shoulders if...

You think of yourself as a master at multitasking but you’re unaware that you’re trying to balance the weight of the world right now.

You take on too much responsibility in all aspects of your life and it’s draining you emotionally and physically.

You feel like you have no help lately but you’re also afraid to ask and risk your title of Multi-Task Master.

It's time to release the trauma from your shoulders so you can stop walking around with the weight of the world on them.


Release The Trauma In Your Shoulders!

You're storing your trauma in your jaw if...

You’re probably someone who finds it difficult to express your feelings with people. This also makes it difficult to set any boundaries with those around you.

So you often find yourself sacrificing your own needs to meet the needs of others. And because of this, you tend to build anger and resentment towards people who take advantage of your people pleasing tendencies.

People-pleaser, no more! Release your jaw tension (as well as the need to say yes to everyone).
