What is rREST ?
rREST is an innovative, mind-body technology that quickly and successfully eliminates stress response patterns generated and reinforced by adversity. rREST is the most effective tool available to give you long-lasting, breakthrough success, fast and efficiently.
How rREST works:
Do you know how sometimes you feel like something just pushes your buttons? Annoying right? We want and expect to respond one way and yet our minds are hijacked and we find ourselves doing something completely different, like yelling at your kids. Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have buttons to push? Well, rREST removes the buttons.
Whether you know it or not, we are all haunted by our past traumas. The reactions we learned from past trauma can interfere with our goals. If you have ever found yourself reacting automatically or struggling to break a “bad” habit, you know what we are talking about.
When we were little, we all had experiences that were emotionally traumatic. They might not seem traumatic from the adult perspective, but they were when we were young. For example, trauma could be as simple and common as having your pacifier taken away … for good. From a baby’s perspective that could feel like the end of the world as we know it.
When we have trauma, we learn a stress response pattern to “handle it”. Later something similar happens and we get triggered, our button gets pushed, over and over again, reinforcing the pattern and making it a habit. For example, we might lose a toy, a game, a friend, a pet, a deal, a loved one, every time … each time pushing our buttons. Without intending to, we find ourselves throwing the same tantrum, either internally or externally, as we did when we were two and “lost” our pacifier.
By the time we are adults, the pattern is pretty ingrained and automatic. Our buttons are firmly embedded and vulnerable. And the reaction that results from our buttons being pushed is usually not very effective, useful, or appropriate. Therapy tries to address these dysfunctional or maladaptive behaviors or emotions, but it works only slowly at best. That’s because you don’t have conscious access to changing the buttons that trigger the stress habits. The buttons are subconscious. The mechanism of the button is the original traumatic memory that lives deep in the implicit memory banks of the limbic system.
rREST uses biofeedback of the stress response (just like a lie detector) to get underneath the button, to access to the trauma and see what happened. Once this initial implicit memory is revealed, it automatically changes and is updated with the adult perspective. Our adult minds rarely experience the child’s trauma as threatening anymore. This new perspective of the trauma, becomes a lasting change in the mind when we sleep, as the updated memory gets consolidated back into long term memory.
Who is it for?
rREST is for anyone who is not willing to let stress interfere with living life fully. Elite athletes realize that to perform at their peak, they need to have just enough, but not too much, stress. Getting triggered with more stress than they need can knock them off their game.
rREST is for you if you:
- Feel like you can’t reach your goals because you keep bumping into the same habits or emotional reaction patterns.
- Want to break a bad habit but can’t.
- Keep getting your buttons pushed.
- Feel resistant to your goals
Service leaders and coaches, whether business coaches, life coaches, wellness coaches, or athletic coaches, benefit the most from rREST because they can be trained to use it to help their clients reach their goals more quickly with more ease and efficiency.
