In addition to brain retraining, I also implement other practices to assist in the self regulation process. As healing occurs in the brain, we can handle deeper levels of somatic embodiment. Often we are able to start working the energetic body more directly, leading to even faster recovery than with just brain retraining alone. This process is highly customized, but I see a general pattern that I recommend to clients who are ready to advance beyond the basics of brain retraining.

In my own journey, I found that doing neurological rehabilitation exercises for my visual, vestibular system and for my vagus nerve activity were also highly beneficial. I slowly incorporated healing through somatic movement and presence practices as my ability to “be in my body” while feeling the intense symptoms and not getting triggered progressed. These other modalities are advanced practices and these exercises and progression are covered in my online home program course titled ,Creating Calm. In this comprehensive one-of-a-kind online course, I teach home exercise practices beyond brain retraining such as:

  • vagus nerve retraining
  • functional neurology exercises for visual and vestibular regulation
  • somatic movement and presence practices for decreasing trauma responses in the body
  • Quantum healing and energy medicine practices

Although I personally love adding other healing practices, I often see many clients doing these other techniques too early in their recovery and experiencing an upsurge in self-sabotaging behaviors as their brain fights to return to homeostasis of “familiar”, although dysfunctional body chemistry and emotional setpoint remains. And I see that when my clients firmly establish a basic daily brain retraining practice while implementing other modalities, they not only handle the shifting of their nervous system into unfamiliar states better, but often have what I call “quantum leaps” of improved function and consciousness expansion.

See you in the next post where I will talk more about brain retraining as a bridge to the quantam field!
