Q: How much time will I need to complete the program?
A: Minimum- You will need to invest 15 minutes a day. (Track, Watch Video- Perform Exercise)
A: Optional- You will have access to 2 group coaching calls (replays) each week (1-1/2 hours each).
Q: What do I need to do this 21-Day Journey?
A: You will need access to the internet through your phone or computer for the daily email and exercise.
A: You will need to print off the Daily Tracker.
A: I highly recommend a journal to write in for the 21-Days- this will help you document how you are feeling and to watch your growth.
Q: How is this different from the 21-Day Reset?
A: The 21-Day Reset is a program using breathwork for all 21-Days. Each day is to practice the deep restorative breath so that your nervous system knows what it is like to move towards the Parasympathetic System and to the Blue Zone-Thriving. As you practice this breath with an intention, your body releases whatever it is ready to release that may get in your way. This is great to help release stress patterns and move out of the Red Zone, Green Zone, and Yellow Zone- Sympathetic System.
This 21-Day Journey into the Nervous System has 21 different Somatic Exercises- a new one taught each day to gently move into your nervous system and allow it to feel safe and supported. These exercises are to release stored trauma- Blue Zone- Trauma/Freeze (Parasympathetic System) and slowly thaw and move towards the Red Zone, Green Zone, Yellow Zone (Sympathetic System) gently through the Healing Stages.
Q: How is this different from the Exceptional Health Masterclass?
A: The Exceptional Health Masterclass (EHM) is a 10-week Group Coaching Program set-up for you to reach a health goal.
Q: What types of exercises will you be teaching? What if I cannot do them?
A: The 21-Day Journey is using Somatic Exercises that will not involve any type of strenuous exercise. Many of them will be done sitting in a chair- others are moving through your home. If you don't feel comfortable doing one of the exercises that's okay, there will be plenty out of the 21 that you will implement.
Q: How long will I have access to the 21-Day Journey?
A: You will have access for 3 months. The reason for this is 2-Fold. (1) When we do something for 21-Days in a row we begin to change habits. Our nervous system creates habits- automatic responses. (2) When we have a specific time frame we are more likely to do it daily. If you need more time I completely understand and this is why I am giving you three months.
Q: What is the refund policy on the 21-Day Journey?
A: There are no refunds available on this 21-Day Journey.
Q: How long have you been doing trauma work?
A: As a physical therapist, I was not educated in trauma work. On my own health journey in 2010, I was led down a road that helped me realize that childhood trauma (ACEs Score) had caught up with me and I was now also dealing with adult trauma from too much stress. As much as the trauma aspect interested me for my own healing. I was not interested in teaching or becoming a trauma practitioner.
In 2020, I attended my first online Trauma Summit, and I have been learning from Dr. Aimie Apigian, MD, Irene Lyons, Peter Levine, Alex Howard, and Sarah Brassard since then. However, I was still resistant to dive any deeper into trauma training.
I did my first 21-Day Reset program with The Reconnect in Australia in January 2022. This is where I have learned specific breathing techniques to reset the nervous system - specifically the autonomic nervous system (stress response and cell danger response) that is triggered based on past experiences, trauma, daily stressors, and habits. After, I saw how much breathwork could make a change to the nervous system I had to learn more about other Somatic Exercises (techniques) that also helped release trauma.
As a physical therapist, I had learned different somatic exercises through the years- but had not learned the essential sequence using them for stored trauma.
In July 2022 I began taking courses through Dr. Aimie Apigain, MD, and learning the essential sequence to healing trauma. Using Somatic Exercises I have seen a change in my own nervous system and though;) I haven't decided if I am going to become a Certified Trauma Provider. I do believe that the Somatic Exercises I have learned and chosen for this 21-Day Journey are a necessary foundation and will help equip the women I work with to better understand their nervous systems and why they do the things they don't want to do and why they don't do the things they want to do and it's all related to the nervous system and stored trauma.
My mission has not changed - helping women live a life of less stress and more energy and this course will help women better enter the Exceptional Health Masterclass and reach their health goal in 10 weeks using the ExSEPshNL Formula.
