A physical problem can't be changed by thoughts about it, so talk therapy is not likely to do much good. The mind cannot
Rewriting the genetics of damaged tissues by application of heat, warmth and loving energy as provided by a trained bodyworker can help heal the ongoing stresses that result from injury. Muscle memory plays an important role in the ability of a person to move freely without effort, and the ability to perform complex tasks without thinking.
While talk therapy remains a viable form of treatment, it may only serve to identify the need for bodywork, a practice that may prevent further degeneration of sympathetic and autonomic nervous system response by traditional use of medications. Dependency on guidance and direction, or medications such as found in psychological treatment settings are irrelevant to the injury, and are not effective in treating the damage that results from the trauma, but may be useful to work on a persistent grievance.
If the purpose of the medications is to remove the ability to feel the injury, we may re-injure the damaged tissues. Without an awareness of the problem we're dealing with, we cannot adapt to the changes that have occurred!
The autonomic and sympathetic nervous systems, the operation of the heart and lungs, breathing and many other functions are not normally under conscious control. Correcting the failure of these organs and tissues is beyond the central nervous system and needs to be done by treating the problem directly, not by retraining the mind. The mind can actually get in the way.
Because many of us get into conflict while sorting out trauma, be it sexual or otherwise, expecting to get this kind of attention from people in the community at large is unlikely. We may find ourselves completely banished by efforts to get something done about trauma. Expect to pay for treatment tending to these concerns. The opinions held by those in conflict may result in the denial of services elsewhere, making bodywork the only option for healing touch. Without the healing energy of touch therapy, we will not recover from trauma. Please see: Bill of Rights
