Is trauma actually stored in the body?

A avocation celebrating

Yes absolutely!

According to science, we do store trauma in our bodies, particularly our muscles. Sometimes trauma overwhelms our minds too much and sends trauma energy to other parts of our bodies to be stored.

Luckily, you can free your body of this stored trauma. Practicing yoga and mindful stretching is a great way to release stored trauma in your body at home.

You can also release stored trauma through professional massages, acupuncture, and deep breathing.
