The National Council for Behavioral Health estimates that seven out of every ten people you know will experience a trauma during their lifetimes – perhaps even you. When that happens, though, what do you do? For speaker and mental health advocate Jessi Beyer, it meant doing nothing and avoiding therapy like the plague.
What she did not know, though, is that there were alternatives to talk therapy. You could spend time with horses, go on a walk through the woods, or dance your way through healing. If you are beginning your trauma healing journey and are looking for an alternative to talk therapy because it has failed you in the past or you are uncomfortable with it, then you have landed in the right place. How To Heal details nine natural and integrative therapy methods that are proven effective for trauma healing:
• Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
• Craniosacral Therapy
• Mindfulness and Meditation
• Dance-Movement Therapy
• Trauma-Sensitive Yoga
• Equine Assisted Therapy
• Canine-Assisted Therapy
• Ecotherapy and Nature-Based Therapies
• Flower Essence Therapy
Written by a fellow trauma survivor, How To Heal includes information beyond the therapies to help you understand what trauma is, how it affects your life, and how you can help someone who struggles with a past traumatic experience.
By taking home How To Heal, you help more than just you and your loved ones. 50% of the profits from all book sales will be donated to the Pararescue Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and preserves the pararescue community during and after their time in uniform.
