Service Description

WHY LEARN TRAUMA RELEASE There’s a link between emotions/stress, and physical health. They trigger a body’s fight, flight or freeze mode. In the long term, a continuously activated sympathetic nervous system may contribute to health issues. In this 3-hour workshop you will learn an incredibly fast and simple technique to release emotions/stress connected to current and past trauma.* This effective “no-talk” technique integrates the body’s energetic and nervous systems in order to release entrained trauma. This is energetic bodywork, NOT talk therapy. It is very effective for those who don’t want to or cannot talk about the trauma. We all have “stuff.” A bonus of learning this simple technique is that you will be able to teach another person to apply the technique to you, or you can apply it to yourself. The hope is that it will spread widely because ANYONE can help family, friends, and clients at little or no cost, and can teach others. *Please note that serious psychological issues—including but not limited to abuse, mental illness, and addiction—should be addressed by a licensed professional. YOU WILL LEARN TO: • Identify an emotional/traumatic issue to clear; • Activate the energetic body; • Activate the central nervous system; • Apply the Trauma Release procedure to a practice partner, and experience it yourself; • Disconnect energetically from the partner; and, • Clear released emotions from the room. WHO CAN SIGN UP? Any adult can learn this energetic bodywork technique with no prerequisites. As it releases “stuck” energy, practitioners of healing modalities such as Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Theta Healing, acupressure & acupuncture, reflexology, Energy Medicine, EMDR, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as Tapping, will be interested in learning this complementary technique. No massage table is required. WHEN TO USE THE TECHNIQUE • Physical Trauma • Traumatic Life Events • Relationships INSTRUCTOR Joan Dohey is a Certified Bowenwork/Bowen Therapy Practitioner (Advanced), from St. John’s, NL, who has also trained in several other modalities, such as Reiki, Rahanni and Soul Genesis, to name a few. In August, 2024, she travelled to Moncton, NB, to study with Madeline McBride. Joan is passionate about helping others release their pain. This Trauma Release method has added immensely to her practice, where she has witnessed the most beautiful releases of trauma in her clients and friends.
