Our bodies are quite adept at repairing themselves. I use a variety of methods to aid that natural ability with modalities such as reflexology, Rapid Eye Technology, microfrequency therapy, emotional processing, coaching, cognitive repatterning, vibration/sound/light therapy, neurofeedback, energy techniques and a variety of mind/body resets.
RET is a natural, safe way to release stress and trauma. It is a breakthrough revolutionary neurotechnology that provides ocular assisted release that is characterized by systematic movement of eyes/eyelids, rapid verbal communication, and special imagery that affect the release of stressful emotions on many levels of human experience. RET simulates REM sleep, your body’s own natural release system where problems are solved. This powerful quick release happens without reliving the trauma. Accessing the whole mind/body system while in an awake state allows you to be in control of your own journey; you now have your conscious mind to make a new choice concerning presenting issues. It's all part of your natural discharge mechanism and helps the repairing of the neural pathways that have been distorted by traumatic memories. RET empowers individuals to live a happy, productive life by releasing negative belief systems, negative thought forms, and negative emotions—all of which contribute to emotional stress.
RET is currently sweeping the nation as a faster, less painful drug-free way of reaching and releasing the following:
RET can help free you from old cellular memory, genetic programming, habits, and negative thought patterns on an individual/generational level—while helping to balance you mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. As these barriers are lifted, you are then free to reclaim a healed state of light and wholeness. Any issue that causes stress can be released, the body retrained, and the mind educated to think and react differently through the RET process and Skills for Life, the cognitive repatterning portion of the RET model.
The Immediate Release Technique (IRT) is one of the processes used in the full model of Rapid Eye Technology (RET)--a neuroscientific technology for releasing negative belief systems, negative thought-forms, and emotional stress. IRT uses a series of techniques designed to release a present issue by combining eye movements, tapping on meridian pressure points, and deep release breath while repeating verbal input to help release negative emotions and re-pattern with positive emotions to create balance in the mind/body system. There are pressure points all over the body such as fear points, obsessive/compulsive points, reversal points, and meridian points. For example, if a point is held above each eyebrow we energize that point. If we tap on it, it invites the energy to open and release. Back and forth eye movements have a desensitizing effect on traumatic memories as well as accessing Left and Right brain modes, while also engaging many areas of the brain and creating a release. It helps to desensitize and neutralize the energy of an issue while helping to create a state of balanced meridians within the mind/body system.
This process is a combination of 3 powerful therapies:
1. Polarity Therapy: Tapping is acupuncture on pressure points without the needles.
2. A Gestalt-Type Technique: Desensitizing by focusing on the energy over and over through repeating negative/positive verbal input.
3. RET Technology: Utilizing rapid eye movement techniques from the Rapid Eye Technology model.
IRT was developed to assist in managing crisis situations, and at the beginning of all sessions if needed, it utilizes desensitizing eye movement techniques. This program was prepared with clinical and editorial input from professional trauma workers and trauma survivors. It uses same class of words and language in conjunction with a physical body release (tapping) that works negative energy release effectively! IRT desensitizes with eye movement, tapping, language, and releases the stressful emotions associated with a traumatic event. We teach IRT as a self-care tool to assist clients between sessions and for the rest of their lives to be able to help themselves. The valuable information presented can make a powerful impact in the quality of life of anyone who experiences it.
NeurOptimal® is the world’s first and only Dynamical Neurofeedback® brain training system that was developed by clinical psychologists that offers training to the brain, enabling it to function as its best. The advanced neuro-technology allows the brain to get the information (feedback) it needs to organize itself, allowing the brain to release patterns that can get in the way of it functioning well. It is a non-linear system that does not push or influence the brain to have a certain outcome. It allows each person's brain the feedback it needs to optimize. It strengthens and retrains your brain to achieve a healthier, more focused state. In order to help balance and optimize the brain, neurofeedback—which is a type of biofeedback—uses advanced computer technology to assess brain wave activity in real time.
Brain waves are the rhythmic electrical impulses generated when the millions and millions of neurons inside your head communicate with each other. Brain waves can reveal important information about your overall brain function, including stress levels, thought patterns, and emotions.
Neurofeedback provides numerous benefits. For people with behavioral issues, it can play an important role in building up a person’s confidence and belief that they can change. In terms of emotional stress and anxiety, it helps retrain the brain to respond more positively to stimuli that produces distressing emotions. And it can help high achievers reach peak performance by optimizing brain function.
In particular, patients have reported enhanced memory and focus, decreased impulsivity and anxiety, better mental clarity, more restful sleep, improved mood, and a host of other benefits after using neurofeedback.
It is mathematically designed to communicate directly with the Central Nervous System (CNS) and has over three million hours of documented safety and usage while optimizing the brain. It does not push the brain toward an externally determined goal or use conditioning/influencing—therefore not requiring a diagnosis or the recipient to do anything while a session is conducted. It works as a ‘detection and monitoring’ system of the changes in the cortical patterns within the brain while mimicking the communication of the CNS by ‘mirroring’ the brain activity that can be undermining optimal brain function. Increasing brain function allows the brain and body to function more efficiently, effectively, and comfortably while also allowing one to become more flexible and resilient.
The V.I.B.E.S. (Vibrational Individualized Body Enhancement System) from Bioharmonic Technologies is a delivery system that uses sound, energy, frequency and vibration for clearing cellular memory and optimizing your mental and emotional expression while balancing your brain chemistry and body physiology. It awakens the most basic parts of the nervous system and human physiology while creating ease in relaxation, meditation, and activates and detoxifies the body. It is a non-touch healing therapy that works on a “quantum level” to address physical, mental, and emotional imbalances together. It consciously brings vibrational frequencies back into harmonic alignment, returning you to a preferred state of balance. It has the capability to transform, restore, recover, balance and ground while assisting the body to self-heal. The V.I.B.E.S. can promote acceleration of the body’s self-healing processes by increasing the cerebral frequency and vibration—ultimately achieving a state of balance, health, and wellness.
The theory behind the technology is that everything is energy vibrating at a specific frequency; the body and energetic patterns have the possibility to change when exposed to the proper frequency, raising the vibratory rate. Some of the benefits of this groundbreaking new technology that offers Full Body Neurological Entrainment include the following: (1) optimize your human potential, (2) reduce stress, (3) increase relaxation, (4) release shock and trauma, (5) boost your immune system, and (6) physical and emotional recovery.
Bioharmonic Technologies has developed specialized musical programs called Sonic-ceuticals™ that combine harmonic frequencies, brainwave entrainment technology, sacred geometry, and other mathematical ratios for supporting specific physiological effects. The system vibrates specialized music directly into the cellular matrix of the body. This process is known as Full Body Neurological Entrainment, or ‘Body Hypnosis’. The V.I.B.E.S. with harmonic resonant music and full body vibration entrains your entire body as well as your brain.
Vibrational Sound Technology
V.I.B.E.S. are human optimization technologies that vibrate low level harmonic frequencies through the largest sensory organ in your body, the skin. The skin can perceive frequencies much lower than human hearing, (0.5-100 hz), and is the largest detoxification organ in the body.
Advanced Cellular Entrainment
The skin has the ability to affect pain, inflammation, temperature, and cellular memory patterns through direct stimulation. V.I.B.E.S creates a deep level of relaxation and a rapid state of meditation as you lay in the field of harmonic sound, energy, frequency and vibration.
A Growing Library of Sonic-ceuticals™
Sonic-ceuticals™ from Bioharmonic Technologies are a unique recipe of modulated brainwave states, sacred geometry, and natural signatures combined with world instruments to create a deeply therapeutic and musically pleasing experience.

One of the tools I use in emotional processing is The Emotion Code®. It is a simple and fast method that was created by a chiropractor to identify and process negative emotions. It uses applied kinesiology (muscle testing) along with an emotion chart to identify emotions that may be related to behaviors and/or physical symptoms. This tool is optimal when working with individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and/or who may not want to express emotions.
Intense emotional events can prevent us from processing emotions in a healthy manner and undealt emotions can distort the body’s natural processes, which may result in pain, emotional distress/outbursts, disease, PTSD, depression, anger, aggression, anxiety, and phobias—just to name a few. The Emotion Code® helps process emotions to assist with emotional balance while potentially building resiliency and healthy coping mechanisms for the individual when faced with emotional or cognitive dissonance.
The Healy® is a scientifically grounded wearable microcurrent medical device that has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that offers programs designed to assist memory, concentration, learning difficulties, mood regulation, stress-reduction, creativity, bioenergetic support, and overall wellbeing. It can also help for relief of acute, chronic, and arthritis pain and muscle soreness due to overexertion. The applications use individualized microcurrent frequencies to help balance the mind/body and relieve stress supporting the body’s self-healing processes; these currents are very low and are in the range of a few microamperes and is designed to bring the cell voltage back into healthy (physiological) range. This modality is often referred to as ‘frequency therapy’ and has scientific basis in assisting on a cellular level that may help specific disorders and conditions.
