Transforming Touch® (Transforming the Experience-Based Brain) is a regulation based modality, which means instead of trying to “fix” specific symptoms, we are look to support nervous system regulation. When our nervous system begins functioning optimally, symptoms fall away of their own accord. Symptoms, whatever they may be (anything from anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADD/ADHD, to autoimmune conditions) manifest when our nervous system becomes overloaded and what is known as our Window of Tolerance becomes minimal. This can happen for many different reasons- specific incidents/traumas/injuries, low grade/long term chronic stress, intergenerational issues, medical trauma, to name a few. Along with increasing prevalence of pain conditions, I see more and more folks having autoimmune, anxiety and sleep issues, adrenal/energy issues, and increasing levels of stress and dysregulation. I see this work as stabilizing the foundation of the "house," supporting clients in enjoying the many benefits that nervous system regulation offers.
Transforming Touch® is a very gentle yet powerful modality. To heal our nervous system, we need to work in small, bite sized ways that are easily integrated and don’t overwhelm the system. This is known as titration. With consistency and stability, we are able to help our nervous system rebuild pathways to regulation. This modality was created by Stephen Terrell, who has extensive experience working with clients in the adoption field, children, and adults from all walks of life.
