What is trauma discharge massage?

The nervous system and physical body can hold our reactive state just by talking about our life’s experiences. The body doesn’t know the difference between here and now and there and then experiences – it just reacts in the same way, leading to tension and ultimately, physical pain and discomfort.

With incredibly sensitive touch, along with training and understanding about the mind-body connection that spans some 40 years, Susan’s legendary healing touch can help soothe what you may be holding on to – and invite the mind – the body – the nervous system – the subconscious – to let go and release it.

How will I benefit?

Done on a regular basis, TDM sessions not only help to discharge what the nervous system might still be carrying, it can also bring ease to the physical body, help to rebalance energy levels, help us to integrate change, and build a more robust resilience to life’s ups and downs.
