Embodied Processing is a technique which is used to safely meet and digest the underlying wounds, which is what often hides behind and is the driving force of many of our surface symptoms. Root-Cause Therapy is a trauma healing method that uses regression and progression practices which allow the completion of unprocessed emotions. This allows the unprocessed to finally process and no longer cause unwanted thoughts, behaviors and symptoms. Walking and Pet therapy combined decreasing anxiety and stress, reduce feelings of fear or worry, increase feelings of social support and provide motivation, stimulation and focus.
