Havening Techniques®

The Havening Techniques is a new psychosensory modality developed by Dr. Ronald Ruden M.D. and co-developed by his brother Dr. Steven Ruden after years of research into the neuroscience of trauma.

Havening Techniques uses touch to promote an increase in Delta Wave activity in the brain to quickly and permanently remove encoded trauma and its emotional content and somatosensory aspects. The Havening Techniques also permanently changes the cognitive component and autonomic reactions to the traumatic encoded memory. The Havening Techniques specifically target a part of the Limbic system of the brain called the amygdala and the neurobiological pathways that were produced during the event that led to the traumatisation. After a trauma has been encoded the levels of stress increase changing the landscape of the brain, increasing vulnerability and making a person more susceptible to further stress and trauma. This can significantly impact the quality of a person’s life and ultimately their emotional and physical health.
