What is a bottom up approach in therapy?! Don‘t worry, you won’t have to stick your bum into the air :P
Some people have been asking what the Triple Vagal Method® that I am working with is and how it works. So I just want to answer that question in a nutshell.
So I am using a bottom up approach.
That means that we are addressing the subconscious mind by directly working with the body, the nervous system and the mycofascia.
In that way we are bypassing the tip of the iceberg (the rational mind) and go deeper to reach the subconscious part of ourselves (where we store emotions, mindset and even believes).
For those of you who want to know more, I want to share what one can expect from a session to heal the nervous system on a deep level...
So this is what I tell my clients before they are coming to a session with me:
„This is a hands on body work therapy that may or may not trigger a massive nervous system response. It all depends where your vagal tone is at when we start. Some clients have emotional releasing first session, to seize response and some just relax. Some feel it very subtly in their bodies.
Neuroplasticity is taking place even 24 to 48 hours after the session, new neurons and new networks are being built in the nervous system and in your brain. That may cause headaches, nausea, fatigue and also unpleasent emotions surfacing.
This is trauma work. You may have an array of emotional and physical symptoms that may arise. As with any deep treatment, be gentle with yourself for the next 24/48hrs.
I encourage journaling and lots of rest. The work triggers neurological reprogramming which means rest rest rest.“
