I have been active in mental health care for over 40 years, currently specializing in PTSD and other trauma issues. I developed a treatment protocol, called Personalized Embodied Rhythm Coupling (PERC), which is designed to meet your individual needs. “Embodied” means that treatment will help you feel “at home” and “safe” in your body, being in your body in the moment to feel all its emotional, sensory, and physical sensations. You will be connected to, and accept, all parts of your body. You will be able to self-soothe when feeling anxious or fearful.
Humans have evolved many rhythms which maintain life. These range from the circadian rhythm to the most recently studied human internal oscillators, now consisting of 168 known rhythms in bio-systems: body temperature, blood pressure, bronchial patency, cognitive function, endocrine, metabolites, organic molecules, cellular, and enzymatic activity.
PERC increases awareness of your rhythms and enables you to alter interactions between different biological rhythms. The primary “rhythm coupling” is between deep slow exhalation breathing rate and HRV heart rate. We then “couple” other rhythms, ultimately impacting mind and body, bringing your overall life rhythm to a health status from a dis-ease state.
