Trauma first and foremost leaves its imprint on the body, yet, for many reasons, the body has historically been omitted from therapeutic enquiry. Body-oriented healing methods, such as SP, can help clients release the hold that traumatic experiences can have, treat the negative impact on the body, emotions and mind, and help people inhabit their bodies in ways that serve and enrich their lives.
