What is Havening Technique® or ADT (Amygdala Depotentiation Therapy)?
It is a psycho-sensory therapy that was developed by Dr Ronald Ruden M.D. Ph.D. it is a very effective way to heal trauma.
When traumatic events occur the brain records or encodes the information permanently to keep us safe from similar events in the future. Sometimes this is very unhelpful and impacts on our lives in negative ways. Research has shown that by applying specific touch (stroking the upper arms/face/hands) and distraction immediately after a distressing memory or bad feeling has been recalled, the link between recall and distress can be broken. This application of touch creates slow brain waves which in turn release feel good chemicals and enzymes into the brain that de – link the encoded trauma on a biological level. You will still be able to remember what happened but will no longer experience the distress when you think about it.
So if you have ever experienced a traumatic event, such as sexual abuse, an accident, abandonment, witnessed a traumatic event, or indeed any event that you still evokes a negative emotion on recall, Havening is something that can help you to change those memories permanently.
Havening Techniques® is a very safe and gentle process and suitable for all ages.
