BILATERAL BRAIN STIMULATION

SHIFTING UPSETTING EMOTIONS

Paying attention to feelings, and sensations of touch, sight or sound, while recalling a traumatic event, seems to shift upsetting emotions that have been stored in the right side of the brain into the left, where they are processed differently.
Research to date, has failed to support the hypothesis that back and forth eye movements are critical to the success of therapy involving imagined exposure to traumatic events.
However, we believe that moving closed eyes to where the body is being touched could visually enhance the bilateral brain stimulation created by sound, touch and motion in these videos.
The usefulness of eye movements may depend upon which of the three major senses, visual, aural or tactile that a person prefers to access, while tuning into traumatic memories.

TRAUMA & THE BRAIN

When a person becomes very upset by an upsetting emotional trauma, there is an overload on the brain and information processing is blocked , with a resulting change of neural elements.
The disturbing event can also prevent REM sleep, the nightly sleep that helps people process normal emotional events of the day.
The neurological blockage causes the incident to remain in the body in its anxiety-producing form, along with the original thoughts, feelings, flashbacks or nightmares.
Bilateral brain stimulation seems to help unblock the neural channels in the brain, increase REM sleep, and allow the brain to complete information processing.

In Video 3, entitled “Bilateral Brain Stimulation,” we show how the foregoing emotional meridians can be stimulated bilaterally, alternately touching the left and right sides of the body.
In this way, we believe that the limbic system of our brain, which is mainly responsible for our emotions, can be tuned on both sides at the same time.
