New research has uncovered traumatically encoded events and psychologically disturbing memories, impact brain functioning with a high percentage having no development of the trauma or memory until many years on and even at times, decades later. The Havening techniques have been developed since 2001 by Dr Ronald A. Ruden M.D., Ph.D and his brother Steven J. Ruden D.D.S., ICF/ACC.

Havening uses powerful tools that can address the consequences of traumatic or stressful events and their memories.

Based on the science of brain chemistry, it is possible to alter encoded traumatic memories, anxiety or fears that are troubling, by altering brain chemistry and the speed of the brain waves. Psychological trauma and stress-related disorders are being treated using this method and involves psychosensory therapies, which uses sensory input to alter thought, mood and behavior.

These sessions remove or dissolve traumas held in the brain and rebuild a nervous system that’s stronger, optimistic and confident with a more hopeful future. Havening is believed to alter the biological structure of the brain. The return of symptoms implies either the traumatic core has been removed or the problem has been encoded in a different way.

If untreated, symptoms of traumatic events, distressing memories and encoded emotional disturbances, can create problems in greater areas of life.

What Happens After a Havening session?

After successful Havening, your block, trauma, stuck emotion, nervousness or distressing memory will no longer be there or no longer be emotional.  Instead it will seem a distant thing in the past, fuzzy, blurry or further away so that you feel detached, safe, calmer, more in control and happier, and you will never be able to feel the same distress about that memory, experience or feeling ever again as the biological structure of the brain has been permanently altered.

Self-Havening Touch Process

Self-Havening can be very effective if done with discipline, insight and a willingness to take risks to bring up uncomfortable emotions. Common conditions that respond particularly well are acute strong negative emotions, such as anger, grief, jealously and sadness, compulsive thoughts and behaviors such as hair pulling, and or imaging stressful situations, general anxiety, panic attacks and chronic somatic pain.

Below demonstrates the touches used in Havening Techniques, These can be applied by ones self or by a practitioner.
