About the Book
The Tao of Trauma: A Practitioner’s Guide for Integrating Five Element Theory and Trauma Healing describes an East-meets-West approach to restoring balance and regulation in survivors of traumatic stress. This ancient/modern integrative lens illuminates the diverse manifestations of traumatic stress – those ‘strange, rare and peculiar’ symptoms that baffle providers – including odd pain patterns, autoimmune illness, insomnia, obesity, digestive upset, anxiety, depression and cognitive disturbance.
