Turbulent times call for thoughtful measures.
With troublesome events around us becoming more intense, our bodies stiffen with fear — and not briefly, like before — but even more. Fear has become a constant driving factor in so many lives which often leads to addictions, disorders, and other health symptoms.
The facts are:
What is supposed to be a natural response, has become disruptive to our wellbeing
Over 90 million in the US have an actual mental illness related to prolonged, oversized, fear response
This manifests physically, causes dysfunction in our bodies and in our relationships and in our performance
In this module, Dr. Aimie will offer critical insights that will prompt you to look deeper into the stress response, the power of fear, and heart shocks, to support your clients on their healing journey.JOIN THE INTEREST LIST
Bracing Patterns From Heart Shocks
Key Questions and Key Points:
- What changes in our biology when we have skin-to-skin touch?
- Every stage of our development starting at the birthing stage has a touch activity associated with it.
- Touch significantly increases the oxytocin force, decreasing cortisol, and brings brain-to-brain synchronization.
- When there is a lack of connection or a violation of trust in the connection, it comes as a shock to the heart.
- What are some very basic ways to be able to provide a type of touch that will be supportive to the internal state?
- How can being deprived of physical touch (such as through COVID), affect us emotionally?
Hormones play a crucial role in shifting the nervous system for optimal well-being.
When we encounter stressful events, our body releases hormones to heighten our awareness. But staying too long in a state of fear causes impacts biological functions and prevents us from living our calling. Understanding how our Hormones work can be an opportunity to live beyond the anxiety, fear, and trauma that is currently driving the world.
Here are some things to expect from this program:
Understanding how fear and prolonged stress contribute to the Biology of Trauma
