What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting is an approach to healing and wellness that is deeply rooted in the body's nervous system. Brainspotting accesses the brain-body's innate self-scanning and self-healing capacities in the context of a neurobiologically and relationally attuned clinical relationship. In Brainspotting, a person's brain-body activation around a particular issue is paired with a relevant eye and orienting position, called a Brainspot. Brainspots are theorized to access the neurophysiological subsystems holding emotional and/or physical experience in an often wordless but felt form of memory. The Brainspot serves to locate and hold such "memory files" open in a calm and grounded environment, allowing the brain-body system and relevant neurophysiological subsystems to re-organize in an adaptive manner to the present. When this happens, the prior activation eases; the person feels--and functions--better.
