Steven Jaggers: Somatic Breathwork for Trauma Healing

“Your breath is the only body rhythm you do both consciously and unconsciously. It is the bridge between your subconscious and conscious mind and body because it controls your nervous system. Every time you take a breath, you respirit, you breathe spirit life force energy back in to you so you can show up from that place right here, right now in the world.” – Steven Jaggers

Wellness + Wisdom Episode 551

Steven Jaggers, Integrative Manual Therapist and Holistic Health Coach, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast episode 551 to uncover how breath connects the conscious and unconscious mind, and how somatic breathwork helps you heal childhood trauma and regulate your nervous system.

How does somatic breathwork help you achieve mental clarity and emotional wellbeing?

In this episode, you will learn why you need to move energy through you, how mouth breathing mimics a trauma response, and why it's important to learn to co-regulate before you learn how to self-regulate.

Power Quotes From The Show

Stress Can Help You Grow

“Stress is the number one killer. It weakens your body to where you can't fight things off. But it's also the number one thing that causes growth. You put barbell plates on you and you're stressing your body to create growth. The same thing that's the number one killer is the number one thing that causes growth. It's all a choice.” – Steven Jaggers

What Is Your Trauma Asking You?

“Something traumatic happens to you, something stressful happens to you, it's a question to you. It's a question to your organism. You can either answer the question or you suppress the question, you don't answer it, you don't look at it. And the question answered is finding a new adaptive pattern and how you grow from this. The question not answered creates symptoms. It gets suppressed, repressed, maybe even to the point that it's a depressed disease of energy flowing through your system.” – Steven Jaggers

Allow Yourself to Feel The Highs And The Lows

“Many people are alive but they're actually not alive. They've cut themselves off from feeling the lows, therefore they've cut themselves off from feeling the highs and they're left in this narrow window of existence which would be a flat line that is a living death.

The world is craving to feel because our somatic sensations are felt sensations. It's how we're born into the world, it's our birthright. It takes more energy from our system to push things down than it does to feel. Numbness is an active process. It takes more energy from your system to maintain a state of numbness. It takes more energy for you to push it down because in your natural state when you're born into the world as a child, you feel everything.” – Steven Jaggers
