Did you catch my May special topic lecture?
The topic was Nervous System Starter Steps.
It was filled with a lot of classic nervous system basics, answers to commonly asked questions, plus some complex stuff too.
Because I know some of you might be brand new to my world of nervous system health and healing trauma at these somatic levels (welcome by the way!), I wanted to cover some basics to get EVERYONE up to speed on what my work is all about.
Here’s a list of the topics and questions I got into:
