Tremors, Body Memories, and Healing
I too have worked with a number of people with Parkinson's and tremors that settle during the course of a therapy session - one who eventually got to the point where as soon as he got into his car to make the drive to his session, his tremor became less - unless he was particularly stressed - from there we could find ways to access that state without associating it with the therapy through the felt sense of his internal state and learning to 'change gear' of his nervous system state.
This makes so much sense - I never connected the tremors you see with diseases like Parkinson - as a symptom of stress (I know someone I will forward this to, who deals with them).
I am familiar with the process of releasing trauma in the body though (was in an earthquake that did a lot of damage when my kids were young). My therapist Aunt had given me some techniques. Basically revisited the scene of the crime in my mind, night after night, until I could go through the whole thing without my body in panic. It took about a year - plus phone sessions with her that included other body work. At the end I could discuss it without feeling emotional or stressed at all. Became really neutral. Was a pivotal experience that way.
Thank you both.
i can already tell you from the title i'm going to love this one - and i promise to read it, because i always do. Neck and neck we go again Gary. i hope your new program with Lillian is going well!
Sometimes my body twitches for some seconds (eg eyes, belly, triceps).
After years of fear, I have come to realise it might just be my body getting rid of past tension.
Do these type of twitches qualify as tremors? And what do you recommend to do with them?
