Brainspotting is a brain-body based relational therapy. Brainspotting is a powerful focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotion, body pain, trauma and dissociation as well as other symptoms.
A brainspot is theorized to be an eye position that is related to the emotional/energetic activation of a traumatic issue within the brain. In other words, where we look, impacts how we feel. A brainspot is located by finding an eye position where the emotion is most strongly felt. A brainspot can also be located from the calmest place in the body. Pinpointing a brainspot is done through noticing an increase in reflexive eye or body movements, such as blinking, swallowing, yawning, eye wobbles, head nods or body twitches.
Brainspotting can help decrease depression, anxiety, phobias and addictions. Brainspotting is used with all areas of trauma such as survivors of war, natural disasters and abuse. It can also be utilized with medical conditions such as traumatic brain injury, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and headaches. Brainspotting provides a neurobiological tool for accessing, diagnosing and treating a wide range of somatic and emotionally based conditions.
