To see the Mind Body Bridging University of Utah site with an interview with Tracy Fehr:
Mind-Body Bridging offers a new paradigm in health and wellness. It is an evidence based intervention which has proven effectiveness in the treatment of PTSD, addictions, anxiety disorders and depression.
Simply put, MBB is a series of basic techniques that allows us to clear our mind and relax our body. As a result, we operate in a better mind-body state that allows for greater self-awareness, enhanced judgement, and living a better life. We have all experienced what happens when we are not operating at our best: our time-management suffers, we cannot problem-solve effectively, we lack empathy, we become disorganized, and we falter in our commitment to important matters. In the extreme, out-of-control emotions can lead to substance abuse, violence, dropping out of school, unemployment and our inability to cope with serious trauma.
Visualize a big switch in your brain that turns the Identity System on and off. Mind-Body Bridging provides the tools to “switch off” when your muscles feel overly tight and your thoughts are racing or become jumbled. It’s not complicated, when we switch off the part of our brain that causes the muddle, we can function as our best and natural self.
