Brainspotting: A physiological process with profound psychological, emotional and physical outcomes.
Brainspotting uses eye position to access and release symptoms and experiences that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind. Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body by directly accessing the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. (What is Brainspotting?)
Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the practitioner with the client, finding a somatic cue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala. It isn’t just PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System) activation that is facilitated, it is homeostasis.
