We will share the latest scientific research into neuroplasticity, and Pain Reprocessing Therapy and why you need to nurture a sense of safety for your primitive brain in order to heal. When we start at any other place than working at the level of the brain, we miss addressing the control center to get your nervous system, body and mind ready to sustain change.

We will teach you how to neutralize these three somatic reflexes, experiencing firsthand how this shifts your posture, supports better movement, digestion, sleep and overall well-being.

“I should or must _________” without paying attention to the truth of what you really need.

When we are disconnected from ourselves, it zaps our energy and motivation, our minds can get foggy and our bodies tight, sore and painful. These imbalances start in a variety of ways. They can show up in your nervous system and mind first and then move into your muscles and tissues. The root cause can be an accident, injury, trauma, or peak life event which disregulates your system leading to anxiety, depression and pain. In other situations the cause of the disconnect is deep seated beliefs that propel you into patterns of in-action and poor choices that leave your nervous system on high alert, feeling a lack of safety and dis-ease.
