ConneXion -Body Mind Soul- Consulting Inc. in Lloydminster, AB offers SRT, a neurobiological approach to healing trauma, not just managing its symptoms. The process works by healing the body and mind together, holistically, by releasing built-up stress and adrenalin from the nervous system. This accumulated stress can make a person mentally and physically sick.
Colleen has been using Self Regulation Therapy primarily since 2005 with much success.
During SRT, clients are asked particular questions and are encouraged to notice what their body is sensing. The process discharges built-up stress and adrenalin from the nervous system. Once the source of ailment is removed, the nervous system returns to a more regulated state, resulting in better overall wellness.
For the past 2 decades neuroscientists such as Stephen Porges, Allan Schore, Robert Scaer, Gabor Mate, Babette Rothschild, Bruce Perry, Norman Dodge, and Peter and Maggie Levine have been studying how stress and trauma affect the mind and body. The neuroscience behind their research is based on the basic animal instincts that help us survive when faced with threat or danger: our subconscious strategies of fighting, fleeing or freezing.
As soon as we perceive threat, our body floods with adrenalin. After we fight, flee, or freeze until the attack is over, we naturally discharge the adrenalin through tingling, trembling, twitching, yawning, giving off tears, giving off heat, or laughing. However, if we do not realize that we are safe, we will not release the adrenalin. It will just accumulate in our nervous system. That happens when:
- We are under chronic stress.
- The event completely overwhelms us.
- Excessive amounts of adrenalin are released to save our lives.
The buildup of stress/adrenalin eventually makes us symptomatic of various physical and mental ailments. Accumulated adrenalin can lead to ailments such as Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, PTSD, Suicidal thoughts, Drug and Alcohol Issues, Gastrointestinal Issues, Migraines and Headaches, Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and Strabismus (lack of convergence). Eventually, the excess adrenalin can lead to Chronic Pain Syndromes and Autoimmune Disorders
SRT helps facilitate the natural release of adrenalin, thus reducing mental and physical symptoms. SRT also heals the patterns/subconscious memories of the traumatic events and allows the immune system to function properly.
