Modern integrated trauma research suggests that one component of recovery from emotional traumaling is a daily practice that activates the brainstem, changes breathing and heart rate, moves energy through the body’s meridians, and releases negative emotions. Perhaps it is not surprising that ancient traditions such as meditation, yoga and tai chi, millenia old, are practiced by hundreds of millions of people every day to promote physical health and emotional well-being.
This week Dr. Pam Blackwell will join us on Healing Talk Radio.
