Last week, I discussed how touch is encoded in the brain and how it impacts cognition, stress, and emotions. I was inspired to explore these connections because of a therapeutic technique I was introduced to, the Havening Technique. This method is claimed to release trauma and balance emotional disorders by combining tactile stimulation with exposure therapy.
In my follow-up article, I get into more specifics on the biochemical and psychological mechanisms of the Havening Technique.
- Explaining Havening in Simple Terms
- DIY Havening Exercises
- The Science of how the Havening Technique Works (Psychological and Biochemical)
- The Processes Followed During a Havening Technique Session
- Evidence of Effectiveness
- My Final Conclusion
