Mainstream trauma treatment has paid scant attention to helping terrified people to safely experience their sensations and emotions.
Since trauma wreaks havoc on both the mind and the body, it's important to address both when treating it. Unfortunately, most traditional trauma treatments do not teach people how to reengage the body in powerful movement, safety or defense to grant them the sense of agency that will aid in their healing. Trauma cannot just be healed cognitively - it has to be healed on a physical level too. The body has to be "retrained" and made to feel safe again.
