HOW DOES BRAINSPOTTING WORK?
Brainspotting utilizes the person’s field of vision via an eye position i.e. where the person looks to access the brain spots and body spots locations that correspond to the location of the traumatic experiences and energies that are stored in the brain and body.
WHAT IS A BRAINSPOT?
A brainspot is a collection of neurons which encapsulate or house the experiences of our life events. Clusters of neurons involved in trauma are called trauma capsules in Brainspotting theory. A person can have multiple interwoven and interconnected trauma capsules and other capsules.
The process used to bring about healing and recovery located in the trauma capsules is known as focused mindful processing. During this processing, the brain and body begins to access its own internal healing resources to reprocess and release the traumatic energies resulting in a decrease in the emotional charge of the experience or event.
This is a very meaningful and powerful healing process that the person’s own body and brain system creates and integrates into their neuronal networks. Brainspotting naturally utilizes the relevant neuronal connections to bring about profound healing and recovery.
