Washing Away the Trauma of Birth

Just being born is a trauma for a baby as it leaves the warm, moist comfort of the womb and enters the glaring lights and abrasive sounds of a new world.

This video shows how a newborn’s raw nervous system can be soothed and calmed into a peaceful state. How lovely to have been welcomed into the world this way.

This is a must-see video.

Notice how the touch and gentle massaging helps the baby’s nervous system to calm  after having gone through the hardship of birth. Likewise, gentle touch can have a profound effect on soothing an adult’s nervous system that has been ravaged by stress and trauma. Early traumas in adults that occurred before 2 years of age are particularly well-treated with this type of therapy.
