Autonomic Nervous System Regulation
Lauren uses various forms of Bio-energetic healing methods and Applied Kinesiology to access the nervous system and unconscious mind to remove emotional blocks and reset the autonomic nervous system. Neuro-Emotional Technique, and Autonomic Response Testing use a manual muscle test as a bio-feedback gauge to access the patient’s physiological state. This involves physical touch on clients arm, and body parts for Meridian Access Points and Body Access Points. Additional modalities use distance testing which involves the practitioner using a self muscle test.
Lauren draws on her 15 years of experience as a psychotherapist, integrative medicine for mental health provider, and coach to provide integrative coaching. Integrative coaching is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. Coaching supports clients in identifying their skills and dreams, refocusing goals, and moving past barriers to feeling their best and achieving their goals. Coaching also supports clients with managing stress, diet, and making lifestyle changes. Coaching can also be used for the entire family to meet specific goals. A coach is a support directly to all members in the family, helping them get in touch with their inner spirit and help them to process their situation a lot clearer in order to find and create solutions to their current situations. A coach is not providing psychotherapy, therefore does not diagnose or treat mental illness.
Consultation services are available in office, video chat, phone, or in home for professionals and clients. Consultation for a client includes reviewing previous medical records and any treatment provided, performance goals, and progress. Ongoing consultations involve tracking the progress of the client with selected providers and offering expert advice and guidance. Consultation for professionals involves case review and support as needed.
The body keeps score according to Dr. Peter Levine and Bessel Van Der Kolk. This refers to the amount of wiring and emotional stresses we hold in the body. We have been programmed and wired to shut off from our intuition, from the truth that lies in the body. This creates disharmony between the mind, body, and soul. Through reconnecting with the body we gently lean in to the whisper of truth. We slowly unwind the nervous system and align the mind, body, and soul. We then show up in our lives and relationships aligned with our truth. Lauren draws from her 24 years of dance/movement training, 13 years of conscious dance movement training, embodiment and somatic training. She is deeply influenced by the work Anna Halprin, Gabrielle Roth, Dr. Peter Levine, and many others.
