2. According to Dr. David Grand, why Brainspotting works to improve mental health
With Brainspotting, where you look affects how you feel. Eye positions and reflexes give us cues as to where the deep (subcortical) brain is holding our emotional issues (unprocessed trauma). Brainspotting is a state of the art psychotherapy that attunes to the eyes (much of which is made up of brain cells) to promote the self-healing that we are innately wired for.
