Healthy Ways to Clear Shock from Your Body

The body can hold onto the effects of shock for as long as it needs to, in order to cope with a difficult situation. Only when you reach a safe space can this shock be released from nerves, muscles and mind. Shock can come from witnessing a violent event on another or feeling under threat yourself. Emotional shock can result from a revelation by someone close to you that affects the viability of your relationship. The shock can release itself by shaking, shivering, needing the toilet, vomiting or restless sleep. Healthy methods of clearing shock include talking to a professional therapist, making contact with a friend for support, having a bodywork therapy like craniosacral therapy or kinesiology, keeping warm, taking some quiet time for prayer & reflection, or even getting on with your daily activities.
