Be Set Free Fast stands for “Behavioral and Emotional Symptom Elimination Training for Resolving Excess Emotion: Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Trauma.” This is a quick, simple, and gentle technique designed to eliminate the emotional roots and self-limiting belief systems embedded in the subconscious mind that lead to dysfunctional thoughts, feeling and behaviors. BSFF uses the power of intention to notice and eliminate a problem, without even needing to identify exactly what the problem is. It includes a “failsafe” protocol for resolving more difficult issues, and addresses anger, criticism, judgment, and unforgiveness toward self and others in every treatment. I teach BSFF to all my clients because it is so useful as a stress reduction technique and can be used anywhere, anytime.
NET is a mind-body stress reduction technique that uses principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine in conjunction with manual muscle testing to identify and release negative emotional patterns stuck in the body. Research and case studies show that when these blocks are cleared, energy flows freely, the body is better able to heal itself, and clients are no longer triggered by unresolved stressful or traumatic events from the past. Clients often experience an increased sense of vitality and well-being, and the positive effects experienced in one area tend to generalize to other areas of life. NET is a modality that needs to be done in person, so I only use this technique with people at the office. To find out more about NET, watch this documentary: https://stresseddoc.com/.
Another meridian-based therapy that involves tapping on specific acupuncture points while acknowledging and releasing the distress caused by a specific issue. Research has shown that the stimulation of acupuncture points reduces stress hormones and releases neuropeptides (or feel-good chemicals). These neurochemical changes help to reduce pain, decrease anxiety, shut off the fight/flight/freeze response, and create a sense of calm. EFT is the most extensively-studied EP technique and a number of research articles have been published about it (see Resources page). EFT is another method that can easily be done outside of therapy sessions for stress relief.
A technique that involves holding specific acupuncture points on the face and back of the head while thinking about a distressing experience. The protocol goes through a series of steps that focus on releasing the origins and negative aspects of the experience, envisioning positive outcomes, and reaching a state of calm and acceptance. It also can be done on one’s own, outside of therapy.
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neuro-physiological sources of emotional and physical pain, and unhealthy coping mechanisms associated with PTSD and trauma. It allows the client to channel the healthy “head” knowledge they possess to transform debilitating traumatic memories andâ€‹ the negative beliefs they feel in relation to the incident. It was developed from EMDR by Dr. David Grand, who worked with thousands of people in NY impacted by 9/11.
A scientifically validated way to assess the body’s physiological response to cognitive and emotional stimuli. The arm, for instance, will go weak (no matter how strong you try to hold it) when you make a statement that causes physiological stress (e.g., “My name is Jane,” when it fact it’s “Mary”); similar to the concept of the polygraph test. This technique is used to identify the incongruence between our conscious thoughts and desires and our subconscious emotional reality, and helps us locate the energetic blockages or stress responses that we then treat with the other methods.
