Helping the Body Reconnect
with the Brain
We can help the brain stop the fight/flight/freeze response and feel safe again using a Neuroscience based program developed by Dr. Irene Luc that focuses on cranial nerve regulation. If you have not been feeling well, you can’t just tell your body to relax and it will listen. You have to create a safe space for the brain to return to its normal signaling. This innovative program uses nerves that connect the brain to the body, specifically the vagus nerve to help identify problem areas and find solutions. This is blended with acupressure points, myofascial release and lymph massage that can help the body reduce the number of signals that the brain has to process which helps the body also feel safe.
If your sleep is interrupted by pain or other symptoms, stress or in a bad routine, then your body starts the day with less energy to heal. Brain training can help reset your circadian rhythm, the internal clock that tells you when you sleep or awake, and teach you how to turn on the sleep centers of your brain quicker.
Reduce Anxiety and Depression
When you are anxious, the most primitive parts of brain signal danger and that effects the whole body. It makes our thinking brain, or frontal lobe, not be able to work as well. Some people think that relaxing is the only way to release anxiety, but the frontal lobe prefers to focus and problem-solve. This involves being aware of your surroundings and how your body is feeling at that moment. Brain training helps you to refocus the brain on new tasks instead of letting your thoughts get stuck in a way that makes you anxious.
Improve Focus and Attention
If you are stuck in a cycle of chronic conditions your brain energy goes to solving a lot of issues with your body and has less energy to remember events, things or ideas. It can feel like your brain is hazy, and it may take effort to put your thoughts together. It’s also common that medications also have a side effect of “brain fog.” The memory centers in the brain become out of practice. If these neurons stay inactive for too long, we start to lose them. Therefore, brain training uses practice words, numbers, and concepts to help sharpen memory again.
Help for Trauma
Brain training for trauma helps you get in touch with your five senses and what your body feels so you can remain in the present. It can be a good bridge for people who are not ready to talk about the past but can tell there are triggers in their bodies that make them angry, sad, or in pain. Counseling and brain training are combined together to help stop triggers.
