Elizabeth Menzel's life's work is understanding and healing trauma trapped in the body - including her own. Originally a trained physical therapist she became intrigued by the link between clients with fibromyalgia and a history of trauma. She found help in Somatic Experiencing and other modes of releasing trauma. She talks about the science of releasing tension and stress, PTSD and sexism - including sharing her own struggles coming from a childhood with an overtly misogynistic father.
