Music Therapy - Intuitive Singing

Integrative Arts Therapy

The phrase “top down, bottom up” refers to the way in which  information is processed. In psychology, ‘Top down’ is perception; how our logical brains choose to interpret and organize life experiences. “Bottom up’ is sensation; information is received through the channels of our sensory receptors and intuition. This is also where trauma is stored.

Evidence-based ‘bottom up’ therapy helps process trauma that lives in the body. This type of therapy is experiential and involves observing sensations as they are happening in the present moment.

Emotions and the autonomic nervous system (ANS) mostly process at the unconscious level so integrative therapy helps access and heal the brain-body connection as a whole. These innovative methods help unlock trauma and promote innate healing.

Bayou Lotus offers the following integrative arts therapy in a trauma sensitive environment: yoga (body work), pranayama (breath work), chi gong (subtle energy work), singing/toning, bi-lateral vibration therapy, meditation, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)

 Self Healing

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, understood the inborn ability of the human body to respond to illness and injury, and restore itself to health. The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.

It is impossible to heal without first learning to be present, in your body and with your feelings.
