In the years since the Adverse Childhood Experiences study (Felitti, 1998), research has concluded that there is undeniable connection between childhood trauma and our health. Importantly, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and mind-body therapies can help us to calm down anxiety, reduce chronic illness symptoms, support digestion, and improve our sleep. Such therapies include mindfulness, yoga, relaxation, breath practices, nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and acupuncture – these can help our clients to increase their resilience, allowing them to control unnecessary defenses and reclaim a sense of safety.
