This is Personal.
Shortly after my mother passed away, and with the help of some incredible mentors, doctors and therapists, I had the healing realization that I had lived a lifetime in a state of sympathetic hyperarousal, or perpetual “fight or flight”. Unaddressed trauma had lead me down a cycle of unmanageable stress. My nervous system was in desperate need of regulation. I began to lean into the various modalities that I had already had in my tool kit as an athlete with greater frequency. Saunas, red light therapy, cold- plunging, breathwork, meditation, and lymphatic massage helped me heal my system so that I could put my best foot forward as a mother, sister, friend and entrepreneur, but most importantly for myself.
Thanks to these transformative practices, I am able to down regulate my nervous system, and build stress-resilience adaptations. In essence, I’ve been able to raise my baseline so that when I am faced with stress, I am able to respond with abundance and calm.
In recognizing my own struggles with stress and trauma, I began to cultivate compassion for myself (an ongoing journey), and in doing so, I was able to recognize the same challenges in others.
I began to question why it was so challenging for me and many in my community to gain access to these incredibly impactful modalities. Why are the impactful wellness services that changed my life so inaccessible?
