10-Minute Somatic Techniques To Gently Rewire A Dysregulated Nervous System

Talk therapy doesn't always work - especially when the nervous system is still affected by trauma.

According to Dr. Peter Levine, our nervous system learns to hold on to trauma as a survival mechanism. That is why we often feel anxious and on guard, as our nervous system anticipates another traumatic event, which can lead to symptoms of PTSD (Levine, 2010).

That is why we often feel anxious and on guard, as our nervous system anticipates another traumatic event, which can lead to symptoms of PTSD (Levine, 2010).

Some of these symptoms can include:

  • Panic attacks
  • Migraines
  • Nightmares
  • ​Pelvic pain
  • Tense or tingling body parts
  • Numbness
  • High blood pressure
  • Difficulty in forming healthy attachments

When survivors living in this trauma-affected state are asked to recall the trauma, Broca’s area in the brain - responsible for speech production - tends to shut down (van der Kolk, 2014).

According to Dr. Peter Levine, verbal forms of therapy can risk re-traumatization for survivors when the autonomic nervous system has not yet had the chance to regulate.

How can we heal trauma when talking isn’t enough?

 

According to leading trauma expert Dr. Stephen Porges, a key way to heal trauma is through strengthening the vagus nerve.

The vagus nerve is the dominant nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system, which runs from the brainstem throughout the body:

This is why if our vagus nerve is weak, it is harder for us to regulate our emotions (Breit et al., 2018; Porges et al., 1994).

Contrarily, a strong vagus nerve is associated with emotional stability and resilience (Porges et al., 1994).

How can we tone the vagus nerve safely and gently?

With the consultation of our top experts in Polyvagal Theory and somatic therapies, Rewire Therapy has assembled expert-approved vagal toning techniques and exercises that can help you to safely and gently calm the overwhelmed nervous system to help reduce the frequency and intensity of triggers.

These techniques include:

  • Self-touch
  • The softening of the muscles in the face
  • Breathwork
  • Trauma-informed yoga
  • Humming, tapping, and gargling
  • Meditation

These techniques intend to help us shift from a state of hyperarousal to a relaxed state, as it is in these mindful, peaceful states, that we can best begin our process of healing.

This program gently guides one through:

  • Daily expert-curated exercises to slowly release trauma from the body
  • Our top-rated theory modules from polyvagal and somatic therapy experts that explain the science behind and the benefits of these exercises

Andrea, USA
"I was super-skeptical if this would work for me because I had literally tried everything and nothing was helping my PTSD... A week into the course and I already feel a huge difference."
 

Emily R, New York
"I bought a course on trauma healing from MindValley but totally didn't relate to the teacher or the content. Listening to female experts who have been there really makes all the difference. Thank you so much :-)."

Jason R, Los Angeles
"I've been trying to heal my PTSD for years. It always felt like I took 2 steps forward and 1 step back. I just purchased this course and it's already paid for itself. The information in week 1 alone was more helpful than anything else I've done."

As a trauma-informed somatic therapist, counselor, and movement therapist I have always had a keen interest in how our bodies reflect and somatize our thoughts and feelings.

This fascination and exploration have spanned almost three decades, over 3,000 hours of training, and working with thousands of students and clients in this field.

As a body-based therapist, I embraced Craniosacral Therapy and Hakomi Mindfulness Psychotherapy as ways of working with our earliest emotional wounds.

I’ve trained in the NeouroAffective Polyvagal Trauma- Informed work of Dr. Aline LaPierre which works through attuned touch, presence, and somatic dialogue to meet those places in us that can continue to hold trauma in the muscular bracing patterns of anxiety and long-term stress.
