Are You Struggling With Sexual Trauma In Colorado Springs Or In The Woodland Park, CO Area?
A Message From Justine Calderwood, Owner & Founder of The Healing Spot Physical Therapy
Many women suffer unnecessarily after sexual trauma because they don’t know who to turn to or what can help, other than talk therapy. They’re told…
The Truth Is...
"At The Healing Spot Physical Therapy, We Specialize In Helping Women Heal From Chronic Pain Stemming From Sexual Trauma So They Can Feel Better and Live a More Joyful Life."
It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have had a traumatic sexual experience. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices…what will happen if you don’t make the right one? Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action, all the while feeling more overwhelmed and unhappy.
When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Sexual Trauma...
You must choose the right provider for your health and well being, someone you can trust and open up to that understands how to help you. If you don’t, you could end up feeling scared, vulnerable and stuck, not knowing where to turn or who to ask for help, or being dependent on pills the rest of your life (that don’t do anything but mask the underlying hurt).
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you feeling whole again, being able to move on and take care of yourself and your family like you want to.
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to hold space for healing for you, to help you process big emotions and listen to your story (only if you want to share it) and guide you through the steps to HEAL from it so you can feel peaceful, calm and ENJOY your life once again. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your pain.
At The Healing Spot Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
Step #1 - We Want To Earn Your Trust
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually listen to you, nor are most physical therapists equipped to help you heal from a traumatic sexual experience. It requires special training, a safe healing space, and a gentle approach.
This is why our first step is to earn your trust and listen to your story, as much or as little as you want to share.
After working with lots of women with Sexual Trauma, we know that no two women are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different ways of processing and healing from traumatic experiences.
This is why our first step is to have an open conversation with you, give you time to get to know and trust us and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out How Bad Things Are and Create a Safe Healing Space for You
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body and a clear path to heal from it. Sexual Trauma can be difficult and complex to heal from; it takes a special provider to be able to hold a safe, healing space and then willingness to work as a team to help you resolve it.
You could have been told that your only choice was to let time pass, rest, take pills, or talk to someone about it.
Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they don’t always address the underlying feelings of trauma and the aftermath.
Every woman’s response to Sexual Trauma is different. No one has the exact same response, the exact same symptoms or the exact same way of processing and healing from the trauma.
Our goal at The Healing Spot Physical Therapy is to help your body release the trauma response and allow your body and mind to feel safe and calm once again. The mind-body complex can store trauma in the form of a “Fight, Flight, Freeze or Fawn” response for months or years (well, indefinitely, to tell you the truth….) and our goal is to help you release this hold on your mind-body complex so you can let it go and begin to live in the here-and-now.
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if this form of therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free taster session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)
Our Discovery Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Session you’ll find out if and how we can help you, and give you peace of mind that your trauma can be healed naturally!
Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Trauma and The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

…Get back to living your life; taking care of yourself and be present in your relationships without anxiety, fear and overwhelming feelings
