The brain science of encoding a trauma & undoing that encoding with Havening.
Tony Burgess (Havening Trainer based in the UK) describes the brain science of encoding of a trauma in the amygdala and also the way that Havening can target that encoding to help free people from the effects of trauma. The science being shared is from the research of Dr Ron Ruden who co-created Havening techniques with his brother Dr Steven Ruden.
