Mona Nygren

My name is Mona and my life’s journey is a complex way into beeing. Now in 2019 it’s 31 years of deep searching. I now have the resources within myself that I need to have to live in peace in ease. Body Wisdom. A clear direction and a strong trust in my own life.

The journey begins

Being born as premature twin in the early 1970s set some challenges that were hard to cope with. Prematurity resulted to poor digestion and hypersensitivity that lead to repetitive infections also poor social engagement.
After finishing school I got a scholarship. Unfortunately I got also an immune disease that stopped my career as a chef. At the age of 18 I experienced a shock trauma and went through multiple surgeries and had to learn to walk and interact again. Pain was a signal that my body needed help because there’s something wrong. I could not find help so I learned how to switch off the sensations, feelings and emotions instead of healing. My experience taught me to live life the best I can and triggered interest in learning self-help. My start in self help was training my body, eating healthy and work, I liked that better than painkillers and sleeping meds.

A new chapter

At 30 when I had been working successfully for many years. I had no energy left, made some life changes, started searching for help. My history was too complicated by that time the knoledge of trauma was poor, so instead I moved to the coutryside and got myself a horse. Connecting to my feeling of safety and rhythm, I started my life connecting to nature and long lost interest discovered during childhood. My horse showed me what I needed: Take better care of myself. So I started yoga, which lead to discovering Psoas, Continuum Movement, Blomberg Rhytm Movement and Somatic Experiencing, SOMA Embodiment.

Deeper interest for the almighty Psoas
I just knew what potential my search for body sensation provided for my health, so I learned more about the importance of combining active rest, rhythm and movement and how to implement them. I started to feel more secure, calm and confident by incorporating exploring movements and sound. It woke me and taught me gratitude on a new level. This opened a whole new dimension. It started with short moments where I left my traumatic experiences and got a taste of the healing power the methods I started using have. The journey hasn’t been easy but it’s the only way and now it’s rewarding me with life without suffering.

Health through trauma knowledge
Today I guide others by teaching what trauma about, ways out of what it holds inside. In my opinion it’s our right to learn how to take better care of ourselves so we can live as independent and valuable individuals.
Developmental trauma, stress and emotional fatigue, shock trauma and hypersensitive are something everyone needs to understand in order to be able to move towards a sustainable future.

Today I’m holding workshops, give sessions and treatments in body-based traumahealing, a greater understanding of your nervous-system, stress reactions and unconscious patterns that affects everyday health and well-being.
