An engineering perspective on post-traumatic stress

Chris Duquemin from New Vision Therapy

Learn how a combination of experience, study and good fortune led to the successful development of our Post Traumatic Stress protocols. Discover the vicious cycle that occurs when 3 seemingly unrelated aspects come together within the Body. At this point, we lose the capacity to "self heal" and get stuck in a compromised "fight or flight" state.

Mechanical Engineer turned Bodyworker! Spent the last 16 years studying the Body from an Engineering perspective. New Vision Therapy is all about identifying and clearing "roadblocks" that negatively influence the Central Nervous System. This then allows the body to fix and repair itself.
