Family Trauma – the Root of Your Health Issues?

Dear Women of the Natural Healing for Women Community,

As you know, I’ve spent a life time invested in healing, both for myself, and for all of my patients and clients over many years of practice.

I’m always following the trail of that which will bring me into greater wellbeing, joy and freedom.

And a big piece of this journey has been around the healing of trauma.

Within the mainstream, there is little if any understanding for how trauma is held in the body, and how it is healed. The truth is, it can’t be resolved through taking a medication, talking about it, or analyzing it with our intellect. Rather, trauma is stored in the nervous system, and must find release through the body.

Over the years, I have found some fabulous therapies that help release trauma from the body. The one closest to my heart is Flower Essence Therapy, which helps liberate the stuck, heavy energy of trauma from the system.

But more recently, I’ve discovered some other fabulous therapies for releasing trauma, and one of them is Family Constellation Therapy or FCT.

FCT is an incredible therapy that addresses our “Lineage Issues”. This is the collective trauma passed down through our family line that we unconsciously hold within ourselves. It’s so amazing to become conscious of these patterns that have been holding you back, and releasing them.

If what I’m talking about is striking a chord or has gotten you curious, please read on as my guest blogger, the amazing Lexi Soulios, shares more about this incredible modality.

Family Constellation Therapy (FCT) can be extremely helpful in addressing emotional distress, relationship difficulties, chronic physical problems and repetitive misfortunes. Often, within a day to several months of having a session done, longstanding issues will significantly lessen or disappear altogether. This is because FCT works to enable change at a deep level, where the unconscious mind is bound by family loyalty and traumas from long ago.


The Basic Theory:

You may be familiar with the idea of using acupuncture to clear congested energy and stimulate chi throughout the body. Well, groups of people – particularly families – also have a natural flow of energy that serves to provide each individual member with love, support, power, life force, etc.


However, when someone in a family sustains a trauma or difficult fate, and family members have NOT made peace with what happened, the flow of energy becomes disrupted. Later generations can be left hungry for vital life force, or carrying emotional burdens, dysfunctions, and unhealthy entanglements that do not belong to them.


Perhaps your mom lost a parent at an early age or had a younger brother who died from small pox. Maybe your great grandfather immigrated to the US, leaving his entire family and beloved homeland behind. War, famine, political/civil histories (e.g., slavery, genocide, famine), estranged family members, divorce, betrayal, and so on… These are not just 2-dimensional stories of the past. They are living, breathing accounts of what happened in the lives of the human beings who affect you the most.


FCT helps to bring resolution to the pain and tragedy of these earlier generations so that you and your children can experience peace and wellbeing today.
