INTRODUCTION – DEFINITION OF TRAUMA
There is no conclusive definition for trauma, only physical and emotional responses that are as varied as the human personality. However, the one overwhelming characteristic of trauma is that it renders us powerless. Trauma is triggered by the inability to have control over our physical self or our environment in the face of perceived danger.
The vestibular system and the ear are one and the same, and sound is movement. How we process sound through the ear, both from outside sources and our voice, is essential for alignment and energy. If the early developmental reflexes don't integrate at the right time we will not process sound correctly, and we may have problems with our visual development as well.

BOTH have the goal of restructuring and realigning the body using the series invented by Ida Rolf.
