Created and developed by Pepper Hernandez, Quantum Alignment Therapy® can help move a person forward from the “frozen” image or memory of their traumatic experience. When a person encounters a traumatic situation, they may either fight back, get away, or not act on their urges. It’s in not acting, or not being able to act, that the emotional damage is done, say experts.
When the body emits adrenaline during a moment of fear or trauma, but can’t then release it by fighting or escaping, the person’s reaction can stay with them for years and hold them back on many levels. The pent-up adrenalin and emotion related to the event can cause physical and emotional blockages that experiencing QA therapy can help release.
Letting go of those chemicals connected to the trauma is the goal of transpersonal psychology therapists. The negative memories can be trapped at a physical level, and must be let go at a physical level. Quantum Alignment Therapy combines cognitive, behavioral and sensory-related treatments. Additionally, a feeling of disconnectedness can result from trauma when the inability to fight or flight freezes the person’s response. This experiencing therapy can counteract this disconnection because it acts on the nervous system.
At times during therapy the patient can describe the traumatic experience and then talk about the body senses or mental images that come up. The therapist can guide the patient through the experience tasks that help release stored emotions, which can be shut down at various levels within the nervous system, for example.
When this therapy treatment is completed, the person often reports a feeling of being free and more engaged with life, as well as decreases in levels of physical pain and the absence of other problems with mental connections.
As a Quantum Alignment® guides the clients session, the treatment may require the patient to be very present with their body and to talk about different sensations they are experiencing as they begin to release stored emotions. In this way, quantum alignment differs from other types of therapy. A sense of confidence and the ability to face the traumatic experience again without the negative emotions can also be a benefit of this unique type of drug-free treatment.
