The effects of falls and accidents or other impacts on the physical body can accumulate over time if there was something that the body wanted to do that it didn’t get to.
Especially when it comes to the need to protect yourself where you didn’t get to, the body holds the impulse of that survival energy in its viscera, muscles, and joints.
I’ve seen where accidents from years ago can still have an effect on the body, energy, and emotional state now. Sometimes the body, even if the mind knows differently, doesn’t register that you ARE safe and ok.
In this Episode: Recognize the symptoms of falls and accidents, how accidents and falls can bring up other trauma including relational, attachment, and sexual, and tips to bring your body back into safety and renegotiate these traumas.

Self-Touch supports healing the nervous system on a deep level.
This episode is sponsored by the Online Touch Workshops that you can access at your own pace and timing.
Supportive self-touch can deepen your capacity to navigate all that you feel, your pleasure, and the ability to heal trauma and be in your body. It can soothe, bring ease, and peace.
I am offering a 2-Part Somatic and Energetic Healing Touch series that gives you 9 basic and simple tools, with how to direct your awareness to enhance your own presence and self-support. Part 2 gives you ways to use your wall to release and complete anger, frustration, and fight responses, as well as strengthen your boundaries and feel that you are supported — that someone’s got your back — and that’s you!
Find both online workshops at CandiceWu.com/touch where you can tune in at your leisure. For a limited time, they are “pay what you can/want” at a sliding scale.
