Meet Liz Stone
Why I practice:
After years of searching for resources and practices to help me deal with Complex PTSD from unresolved trauma I was so encouraged to learn about many of the modalities we now offer at The Balanced Stone. In fact, researching, studying, and gathering these modalities over the last decade and a half is a big part of why we founded our healing center. I remember thinking, what if it hadn’t taken me 30 years to do this work to heal? Most of us just don’t know where to look and what is possible. EMDR, Neurofeedback, Sound Healing, Qigong and Somatic work have all been part of my personal healing journey and have extensive studies behind the efficacy of these modalities on healing trauma in the body. I have gained so much from my practice with each one and continue to learn and grow as I do.
Why I teach:
There was a time in my life where I didn’t know how to survive the coming waves of panic or make it through each 24 hour filled day. I teach now because I know what it is to be without hope and not know where to look for healing. It’s very difficult to research when we are in crisis. That is why I am so passionate about mentoring others in all that is possible in the modalities that we know about today for the healing of trauma. I am a firm believer that no one knows exactly what is the right next step for you but that as we learn of each new resource, class, or modality we will begin to resonate with what is right for us. Healing is rarely just one thing. There is so much wisdom inside of ourselves and tapping into the wisdom of the body is a sacred journey.
I am certified in Sound Healing and near completion in my Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy certification. I am also getting certified for Neurofeedback and our center will be the only one with a Neurofeedback machine available for clinical use in Tooele County. Still, I feel what qualifies me most to do this work and hold space for others is my own healing journey as a survivor of both physical and sexual violence. I’m honored to walk this path with you!
