Trauma is stored in the body. You might not be totally aware of what caused it but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

It's not only trauma that can cause these disruptions to the autonomic nervous system, resulting in the dissociative symptoms. Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system using various meditation techniques, hypnosis or sensory deprivation, have the potential to trigger similar experiences.

The Polyvagal Theory is interesting and is of significance to tonic immobility/ shutdown. A search of this site produced zero results for Polyvagal Theory (which is surprising), so I'm adding a link:
