"This is clearly a book that all survivors of trauma, therapists, and other mind-body healers can greatly benefit from. It is comprehensive, thoughtful, well written, and scientifically grounded. The book combines both theory and practical mind-body exercises that show how one can recognize the limiting patterns resulting from trauma. Then, most importantly, it guides the reader to create new patterns in the areas of health, love, spirituality, work, and finances. Susanne has simplified this body-based approach to trauma so readers will find it user-friendly and applicable to their particular situation."
