‘Movement is a Medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional and mental states’ – Carol Welch
Working with clients who have deep grief or trauma, I have discovered that ‘talk therapy’ rarely helps them heal.
I have learned through healing my own grief and working with others, that when we do activities that create movement and help us express our emotions and pain, we feel lighter.
As life is a continuous movement of energy and change, it’s important to discover ways to connect to this beautiful life force and harmony. It will be different for everyone and some examples that work well, is Art Therapy, Music, Dancing, Singing, Yoga, Tai Chi, Laughing, Cooking, Gardening, Reiki, Massage, just to name a few.
When we begin expressing ourselves and our pain outwardly through these activities, we open up our energy field to move and release, and this creates space and lightness. This space then allows creative energy, vitality and change to flow within us, helping us feel alive and connected again.
