More about Havening…

Havening is a technique that targets encoded traumas. It disconnects the emotional component from the memory, removing the distress of re-experiencing the event, through a process called depotentiation. This is accomplished through using the Havening Touch protocol which creates delta waves in the brain. The delta waves facilitate a electrochemical process that creates the enzyme Calcinurin, which removes the AMPA receptors from the neurons holding the trauma in the amygdala.

During this two day workshop participants will receive one-on-one instruction by seasoned practitioners on how to apply this technique. This a perfect compliment to your present skill sets or the basis of a whole new approach to healing.

This program is designed for hypnotists nurses, psychologists, licensed mental health care workers, first responders, educators, coaches,teachers and many other professionals.
