What is Traumatic Memory Reconsolidation?

Traumatic Memory Reconsolidation is the use of different therapeutic techniques to integrate a traumatic memory. At the time of a highly emotional event, we may not have the cognitive information to fully understand or deal with the situation. This then exacerbates the negatively held emotions in the body. If not resolved, it develops into a fragmented “stuck” memory in the brain and body.

Some techniques that are used:

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) methodology is a form of adaptive information processing which may help the brain unblock maladaptive material. It also appears that EMDR may avoid some of the long and difficult emotional work often involved in the treatment of mental health issues. Bilateral stimulation is used to reprocess these events, images, or beliefs by means of eye movements, auditory tones, or via tactile (touch).

BSP (Brainspotting)

Brainspotting is another form of psychotherapy that uses the client’s visual field to help access and heal unprocessed trauma that is held in the brain. It is hypothesized that EMDR uses more of the hippocampus to process these events and BSP uses the amygdala getting an added layer of trauma cleared.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It uses “life force energy” to create natural healing in the body. This life force travels throughout our body and when stuck or is low causes us to get sick, feel emotionally drained, and does not allow us to enjoy being our true authentic self. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. Therefore, Reiki is translated as “spiritually guided life force energy.” Quantum Processing (QP) uses Reiki to clear negatively held energy which is blocking the brain from fully integrating traumatic memories.

Past Life Regression

Past life regression is a method that uses hypnosis to recover memories of past lives or incarnations. This is a controversial method among clinical experts. However, our theory is “your perspective is always right.” Therefore, what your subconscious surfaces during a past life hypnosis session will not only bring clarity and guidance to your present circumstances but it will also bring deep healing.

Note: Traumatic Memory Reconsolidation cannot treat grief as grief is a normal and much needed means of moving through loss. However, it does treat the trauma and irrational thoughts associated with traumatic grief. When the maladaptive information has been reprocessed we can work together to move through the natural stages of grief in a healthy way.
