To unwind the body is a simple but powerful way to help the body release deeply held stress, tension, and trauma. If the body’s natural unwinding mechanism is induced, even long after the trauma, it results in less anxiety and less body pain. Just like a Cranio sacral balance, unwinding resets the Nervous System from fight, flight and freeze to a normal non–survival state of balance. Cats for example easily get frights, but every time they wake up from a nap, they stretch the tension out of their muscles and thus prevent a built up in stress hormones.
