As a practitioner working with children who struggle with psychological and behavioral issues, I am very interested in understanding what most helps children survive difficult, even traumatic, childhoods. Beyond surviving, I'm even more interested in what helps children to become confident, autonomous and successful adults...

A nightmare is a warning from the subconscious mind. It might signal a medical condition that needs to be treated, but it may also mean that you are ready to release pent-up negative emotions, negative scripting or trauma. Dream expert Patricia Garfield, author of Creative Dreaming, The Universal Dream Key and other books, tells us that most dreams are negative...

Whether you agree with American foreign policy or not, it’s difficult to imagine disagreement over the fact that soldiers returning from war should be given the best possible care to recover from physical and psychological injuries incurred in military service...
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanism is a broad practice of accessing knowledge and healing from non-physical intelligent sources - spirits. There are many ways to connect with spirits, and some use psycho-active substances - plant spirit medicine - to make the connection. This article presents one of those ways. I do not have direct knowledge of Iboga, but I do know that the traumas suffered by soldiers in war time are treatable by many forms of shamanic healing - with and without the ingestion of plant spirit medicine.

Conventional science has believed that our genetic inheritance is set in stone – that our DNA is what solely determines our health, personality traits and intelligence. Like a roll of the dice, you get what you came in with, and that’s it. Many people still believe this today. But, discoveries have been made that confound previous research; a simple change in environment can turn your genes on or off...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation has been scientifically proven to alter genetic structure. So, as Marlise showcases it here... we each have the ability to change the "predisposed" and seemingly uncontrollable aspects of our lives based on our energy and thoughts. Read the studies on trauma, for example, and how it can affect the genetic makeup through generations. Powerful stuff.

Sometimes I find myself working on a patient that I have not seen in several years. While my hands are gently kneading the muscle tissues and offering pressure along their spine, suddenly my hands become flooded with memories of how this person’s body felt under my hands, years before...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: How does energy medicine "work?" Is there an energy field composed of information about your past traumas and injuries? Is this the information an energy therapist accesses to facilitate the healing process? Craig Weiner, DC, a health care practitioner for 25 years as a doctor of chiropractic, certified massage therapist and EFT practitioner, explores the potential of accessing this cellular memory - this field of possibilities - that enables an individual opportunities for healing.

Here is the obvious. If you use EFT yourself or with others, you are using the process of memory. If you are seriously doing EFT with others, if you have not yet, then you will run into trauma...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Memory - why is it that you might forget where you left your keys yet a traumatic memory from years past keeps rearing its ugly head? If you have practiced Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on yourself or employ it as a modality in your health practice, you have probably encountered traumatic memories.
Dr. Craig Weiner helps you understand how trauma alters memories in a simple, concise explanation of the neuroscience behind memory. Knowing how trauma is stored explains how random, seemingly unrelated memories arise during a tapping session. As well, Dr. Weiner explains why the emotional flood gate might open when recalling a past trauma.

We've written about how sports massage therapy can help football players, stating that regular massage can help keep players refresh during long periods of training, as well as help players avoid or manage their injuries. Yet another way massage therapy can help all athletes – and especially football players – is in its ability to treat pain associated with scars...
Editor's Note: Massage is not just for relaxation. It is gradually getting more attention for being a pain relief therapy. Scar tissue can form from any injury and traumatic bodily experience. This can cause serious pain. Read this article to find out how massage can help permanently relieve this pain.

PTSD can be triggered by a wide range of events including - but definitely not limited to - a violent assault, disasters (natural or human-caused), an accident or military combat...
