The BLAST Technique® allows you to process trauma and let it go, leaving you free to live a happier life.
Have you experienced Trauma?
Many people are living with the after effects of trauma without realising that they are 'traumatised'. Trauma isn't always caused by a hugely dramatic event - it's more about our ability to cope with it at the time that influences its impact on us.
The mind has natural mechanisms for dealing with shocks, however, if an experience exceeds a person's ability to cope with it at the time it occurred, the emotions around the experience may get "stuck".
After experiencing a shock, it is normal to feel after-effects for a time, but if symptoms persist beyond one month, PTSD may be diagnosed.
According to NICE guidelines, symptoms of Trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) include:
Reliving the event
Feelings of detachment or estrangement from others
Difficulty falling or staying alseep
Irritability or outbursts of anger
BLAST Technique® - Bilateral Analysis and Stimulation
The BLAST technique® is an extremely fast and powerful method for resolving traumas, after which they lose their emotional charge, and symptoms of that trauma do not return.
Neuroscience research shows that structures in the right side/hemisphere of the brain are overactive and acting as if there is an immediate threat in sufferers of PTSD and trauma.
The BLAST Technique® utilises precise bi-lateral movements with a light pen (which helps the memory access the left side/hemisphere of the brain) and specific suggestions to the client which helps reprocess the traumatic event so they understand what happened and can remember, but it no longer has any physical or emotional response.
Where a trauma has also created a phobia, resolving the trauma also removes the phobia.
BLAST can be used for serious traumas, or lesser anxieties. In each case, resolving the issues improves a person's well-being, and frees up energy for more positive enjoyment of life.
The BLAST Technique® was created over 11 years ago by psychotherapist Nick Davies in order to speed up the process and efficacy of PTSD and trauma treatment for an all-round better and more efficient experience for the client. It draws from some of the research of neuroscientists and neuropsychologists Joseph LeDoux, Peter Naish and Ksenja da Silva, and utilises several treatment modalities to create what we practitioners and our clients believe is the fastest most effective treatment for this chronic, yet curable condition.
It has now been effectively used thousands of times by trained BLAST Technique® Practitioners for things like serious accidents, violent assaults, rape and child abuse, changing their lives for the better.
