Meet the #SameHere Practitioner Alliance consisting of world experts in STARR (Stress & Trauma, Active Release & Rewiring) Exercises. To feel better we must actually heal our Central Nervous Systems. Each expert’s profile represents a unique STARR Exercise below, so that you may learn about the many options available to you. The best way to use this page is to first listen to the brief video instructions below. Then, if you’re ready to learn directly from the experts, you can click on the “Take the Official STARR Course” link, below.  

If you want to dive-in more slowly, you can click on the “STARR-ting” Exercises for beginners. Once you are comfortable, start reading each expert’s bio to hear how exercises that each of them champion, positively affect our mental health. You can then check out their resource recommendations and eventually take the “Official STARR Course.”  Improving our mental health is not a “one-size-fits-all” process, however, by providing you with a list of exercises & therapies, as well as a comprehensive course, you can research & choose the ones that work best for you. Many of these exercises can be done at home, but you can also look for practitioners in your area who offer them. There are many options to improve our physical health – with gyms on almost every corner. Now with STARR, we have options to build our own “Gyms For Our Brains” as well.
