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.
Evidence-based ‘bottom up’ therapy helps process trauma that lives in the body. This type of therapy involves observing sensations as they are happing in the present moment.
Emotions and the autonomic nervous system mostly process at the unconscious level so ‘bottom up’ therapy helps access and integrate the brain-body connection as a whole. These innovative methods help unlock trauma and promote innate healing.
Examples of integrative mind-body techniques and expressive arts-based therapies at Bayou Lotus are yoga, chi gong, singing, music, bi-lateral vibration therapy, meditation, and mindfulness.

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.
